A Nightmare on Elm Street - classic horror, beloved shocker, and most pointless choice for a remake ever. But Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes are still plugging away, and the first trailer for Samuel Bayer's take has turned up on MySpace.
It all looks pretty similar, with girls skipping and knives scraping, and we even get to keep the roof-raising bedroom scene (not to mention that bit in the bath). But there's new stuff too: we see Jackie Earle Haley's Freddy Krueger running from an angry mob of parents, and hiding in the boiler room, before being burnt in his favourite stripey jumper.
Is that addition enough to redeem this remake? Check out the trailer over here, or read on for the video. A Nightmare on Elm Street hits Stateside next April.
