While the crop of this week's DVD and Blu-Ray new releases may have been slim, there was one shining light amongst them all. Freddy Krueger.
When you purchase Warner Home Video's The Final Destination, you'll be treated to an exclusive look at the new A Nightmare on Elm Street, which hits theaters April 30th, 2010, from Platinum Dunes.
The film looks dark, gritty, and the glove seems to fit Jackie Earle Haley perfectly. Haley himself admits that the famous glove "went through several different designs," and he goes on to say that the film, "is going to be darker and a bit more serious." While the original is definitely going to be hard to top, it will be nice to see Krueger relying less on the one liners, and more on his fingers to do the talking.
Do yourself a favor if you can, though. Borrow your friends copy of The Final Destination, or even better; watch the clip below courtesy of an Elm Street fan, because as great as the clip is, nothing is worth owning that DVD. Nothing.
