A Quarter-Century of Krueger: NOES Remake Comic Con Panel!

This week, in the spirit of San Diego Comic Con envy, I bring you video from yesterday's special panel on the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. On the panel are producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes, as well as director Samuel Bayer and of course the new Freddy Krueger himself, Jackie Earle Haley...



Very cool stuff, although I confess to being a little troubled by Bayer's somewhat condescending comment regarding how his remake will be "different from what's come before" in that it will be "scary [and] a little darker". As if the original was Patch Adams or something. Hmmm....

Big Freddy fan that I am, I'm not gonna lie: I loved Jackie as Rorschach so I'm kinda looking forward to his Freddy. Still holding out for disappointment because I'm also kind of a die hard.

Stu: BRILLIANT

Mistress: I think this could be real good if we all give it a chance.
