elmstreet thumbRecently HeyUGuys went Freddy Krazy (including Gary meeting the man behind the mask), so it’s fitting that we get to see a few pictures of the Platinum Dunes Remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

As you can see from the pictures below director Samuel Bayer has kept the iconic elements of the Wes Craven classic, in fact they could be photos from the original, and Jackie Earle Haley looks very Freddy-esque in silhouette at least. It’ll be interesting to see Haley’s portrayal of this horror icon, and whether the Scream generation post modernism means that Freddy will keep the wisecracks, or if the film goes all out gut wrenching horror.

These shots come to us from Omelete (via TotalFilm), and point to a faithful recreation of the fire, clawfingers and fear of the original.
