I've got something pretty fascinating for you this week in QCK. The following is an independently produced "concept piece" created by actor/director/effects man Christopher Johnson, which was created earlier this year as a "tool" to demonstrate his passion for the Elm Street remake project.
Apparently, Johnson had originally planned to pitch himself to Platinum Dunes as a writer/director for the NOES remake. But when Samuel Bayer got the gig, Johnson switched gears and worked with his agent to land the role of Freddy Krueger.
Despite Johnson's best efforts, Platinum Dunes decided to go in a different direction. But nevertheless, we still have this faux trailer, which is a damn fine re-imagining of the '80s horror classic, if you ask me--at least on a par with those terrific Sandy Collora Batman trailers from a few years back. I especially like the flaming Freddy concept.
Anyway, hope you enjoy...
