'Nightmare on Elm Street' releases first full trailer ... and it looks great



The first full-length trailer for the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street has been released, and maybe I'm getting soft in my old age, but I'm impressed.

The movie, which seems to follow the 1984 original pretty closely, stars Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy Krueger. It's set for release on April 30. (The official website is up and buzzing too.)

Frankly, I hate horror movies. It's an affliction I've held since watching The Exorcist at age 11, thus causing me not to sleep until I was 24. Other side effects including an aversion to split-pea soup, fear of staircases, an irrational love of Max von Sydow and an inability to use religious objects as sex toys. But that's beside the point.

Still, I'm tempted to see this remake. Worst-case scenario, you'll get round-the-clock blog updates from me for the next 10 years.
