Hollywood Product: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Something goes wrong with Freddy's new facelift.

GENRE: Supernatural horror thriller.

THE PITCH: Here’s a contemporary A re-imagining of Wes Craven’s original horror flick. After the tragic death of a classmate, several kids in the sleepy town of Springwood, Ohio discover they’re collectively being haunted by a fashion-challenged, disfigured man wielding a leather glove fitted with razor-sharp knives named “Freddy” Kruger (Jackie Earle Haley).  As they desperately try to avoid a nightmarish demise from Kruger, more clues about their past and the connection to their dream time menace are slowly revealed. Realizing there’s no way to stop him in any conventional sense, the remaining teens, Nancy (Rooney Mara) and Quentin (Kyle Gallner) make one last ditch effort to stop him.
