Nightmare On Elm Street Remake – Amazing Fan Trailer2.04.09 # News # 29 Comments
Platinum Dunes plans to release their remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street in 2010 and horror fans are already buzzing about who will play Freddy. Rumors have evolved from Robert Englund to Billy Bob Thornton to Jackie Earle Haley.
But out of the countless Hollywood actors vying for the iconic role, Christopher Johnson is the only one to pool his various skills in make-up and visual effects, along with a talented cast and crew, and shoot a fake concept trailer for the upcoming film. And while YouTube is already clogged with countless fan-made videos, this one has the distinction of being very, very good.
Not only is Chris making a play for the role, but the trailer showcases a new FX concept for the re-imagined Freddy.
Take a look:
The original Freddy was cursed to look as he did when he transitioned from life to death. Now that includes the fire itself – cinders waft from his mouth, the blades are glowing hot, and flames lick his body.
