Nightmare On Elm Street... the REMAKE?!

How did this happen right under my nose??? Apparently, Samuel Bayer has jumped on the horror flick remake wagon and is taking on the serious task of remaking what is my favorite horror film series of all time - Nightmare on Elm Street. And.. well... I don't know. According to IMDB, he's mostly done music videos... Although i'll admit, he's made some pretty great music videos, including the following gems (and personal favorites of mine):

(I was also going to include Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Smashing Pumpkins' "Bullet with Butterfly Wings," but YouTube has disabled embedding... bastards)

You can see a pattern developing in his videos anyway, definitely dark and edgy... lots of contrast and flashing lights and strong, vibrant colors. But then, he might not necessarily maintain the same kind of vision for the film. Only time will tell.

For now, i'll leave you with the trailer for the original film.
