Freddy Krueger: An all new 'Nightmare on Elm Street' opens today


A brand new version of the classic film opens Friday, April 30, just in time to kick off May.

In the film's summary, Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they're all having the same dream--of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. And they're all hearing the same frightening voice...

One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.

This version of "A Nightmare on Elm Street," is a contemporary re-imagining of the seminal horror classic, starring Academy Award® nominee Jackie Earle Haley ("Little Children," "Watchmen") as Freddy Krueger. The film is directed by award-winning music video and commercial director Samuel Bayer (Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"), marking his feature film directorial debut.

An ensemble of young actors play the teenagers now taking on Freddy Krueger, led by Rooney Mara ("Urban Legend: Bloody Mary") as Nancy, Kyle Gallner ("The Haunting in Connecticut") as Quentin, Katie Cassidy ("Taken," TV's "Supernatural" & "Melrose Place") as Kris, Thomas Dekker ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") as Jesse, and Kellan Lutz ("Twilight," "The Twilight Saga: New Moon") as Dean.

The movie is in theaters across the country.
