One, two, Freddy's coming for you...yet again. Hollywood continues with its latest trend of taking something old and turning it into something new with this "reimagining" of the horror classic about everybody's favorite dream killer.

Taking over for Robert Englund as the burned baddie with a wit as sharp as the blades on his glove is Watchmen and Little Children star Jackie Earle Haley, whose nighttime nuisance seems to get a bit more backstory this time around.

While the updated version is clearly designed to introduce Freddy to a whole new generation, there are plenty of elements taken from the original that may help satisfy fans of the 1984 flick as well. Sadly, Johnny Depp isn't one of them.
