It was only five years ago that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes released their reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Jackie Earle Haley as iconic boogeyman Freddy Krueger. That reboot didn’t go over so well — Haley was the only highlight in an otherwise drab and underwhelming horror flick. It seems New Line didn’t learn much from that attempt at restarting the franchise, as the studio is currently plotting yet another reboot.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Unleashed in 1984, 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' gave everyone, well, nightmares with its horrific and instantly iconic villain Freddy Krueger -- a psychotic man who is burned to death by the parents of the children he murdered, and has returned to kill their teenagers in kind by terrorizing them in their sleep. The film gave us several sequels and a remake in 2010, but today we take a trip back to where it all started to see what the cast of the film are up to now.
