A Nightmare on Elm Street

Jackie Earle Haley

STARRING Jackie Earle Haley
WRITTEN BY Wesley Strick, Eric Heisserer
DIRECTED BY Samuel Bayer

Jackie Earle Haley takes over for Robert Englund in this reboot of the classic slasher franchise about a group of suburban teenagers whose dreams are haunted by Freddy Krueger, a dead child murderer with unique fashion sense. The striped sweater, the fedora, and the metal-clawed glove are all back. Johnny Depp, unfortunately, chose not to reprise his role as The Boy Who Gets Eaten By The Bed.
