Blog Update: Upclose Picture of Jackie Earle Haley as the New Freddy Krueger

Well we’re in April and the offcial count down has begun for the new Nightmare on Elm Street remake.  I’m looking forward to it if for no other reason than for the new Freddy himself, Jackie Earle Haley.  Haley’s been having a huge career boost lately starting with his portrayal of Rorschach in the Watchmen movie (2009).  Since then he’s appeared in the 2010 film Shutter Island and has a great role in the Fox TV show Human Target.  I really believe that if anyone can add a new demented and intense dimension to the role of Freddy Krueger (who has, let’s face it, become the laughing stock of the slasher world), its Haley.

And here is the 1st closeup still of Haley as Krueger.  What do you think??

  1. This looks pretty badass, they are not going over the top. And dont look goofy as well. What do you think about his new face?

    1. I think the new face of Freddy looks fucking great!! You can still “see” the face of Jackie Earle Haley in there and it really looks like scar tissue as the result of extensive burning. I’m guessing the f/x guys did their research and spent some time in burn wards!! Seeing the new face of Freddy makes me feel even more positive that the remake is gonna kick ass. Man I’m gonna be really let down if it sucks!! LOL

    1. Hey Bill; as I’m responding to all these comments I’m listening to some classic old Genesis (nothing past 1974’s Lamb Lies Down on Broadway). Good fucking memories!!
