There’s a brand new poster out for this year’s remake/reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street. We’ve already seen Freddy’s complete new look in the A Nightmare on Elm Street action figures, but nevertheless the foreboding new poster makes us wonder what lurks in the shadow of the hat and just how terrifying it’s going to be. Some might lament the apparent loss of the humour that seems to be the hallmark of modern remakes (grim grittiness = awesome?), but at least the poster indicates that they’ve still got the original in mind.
I suppose I could have done without the added details of the beat-up hat and torn sweater (if he’s an immortal dream monster, why does he only have one set of clothes?), but I think we can all just keep our fingers crossed for the best while expecting the worst and try to enjoy the ride.
