And so the marketing blitz behind the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street begins. Looks like these guys are spending a hefty chunk of change – presumably in an attempt to replicate the Friday the 13th remake’s opening weekend numbers. Will you be duped again? Check out these teasers and make up your own mind.
The following videos were posted to Vimeo by Click 3X, a promotional agency that’s hoping to get the word out on this update of a horror classic.
The Samuel Bayer directed remake stars Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown, and Connie Britton and focuses on a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.
It’s almost enough to make me nostalgic for the old days of Elm Street mania, but I’m just not feeling this one. Not in the trailer, and not in these promos. Time will tell on April 30th.
