A Nightmare Re-Awakens on Elm Street

The franchise that put New Line Cinema on the map, A Nightmare on Elm Street, is now the latest horror series to get the "reboot" treatment (in Hollywood speak, "reboot" has become the new "re-imagining", but of course, they are all just remakes).

Following in the bloody wake of the recent returns of Leatherface, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees (also in the works), this return to Elm Street will reportedly have a new Freddy Krueger as well. Now how anyone could (or want to) don the stripped sweater and finger blades made iconic by Robert Englund is beyond me.

(That sound you hear is outraged fanboys scrambling to post boycott notices and online petitions as we speak.)
