Ugh, did they really need to bring back the red and green sweater and fedora? I was hoping for whole new look for Freddy. Something a lot less campy and played out.
That'd be like getting rid of Jason's hockey mask or Superman's red S.
I realize they're iconic, but that doesn't mean it also isn't cheesy as hell. Especially when I look at that outfit today.

And at least the hockey mask looks kind of sinister on it's own. The red and green christmas sweater and Indiana Jones fedora? Not so much.

Besides, to me the CONCEPT behind the Nightmare series is strong enough that it doesn't really need the silly costume. The burnt face and glove are good enough for me.
