Jackie Earle Haley’s Freddy Krueger
Ahh the things we lost in the fire. Such as our soul, good looks, and the need to ever buy Nivea for Men again. Platinum Dunes is working hard on marketing the research put into the new appearance of Freddy Krueger. When the film is released we will hear a lot about the time and effort put into creating ‘realistic skin burn effects’. Although I’m not sure why, when dealing with Freddy Krueger, you need to worry too much about realism. Anyway, the resulting effect seems to have left Freddy looking a little more alien than previous incarnations. Is it just me or are you getting a certain ‘Close Encounters’ or X-Files Mr Burns vibe from the new design? Well below Deadly Movies can exclusively reveal for the first time anywhere a screen grab from the film’s controversial finale.
