Krueger terrorises cinema!

12 May – Freddy Krueger made a scene last night at "A Nightmare On Elm Street" premiere held in GSC Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, where the horror icon attacked a young Chinese boy clad in a ripped, white t-shirt smeared in blood, and dragged him away from the eyes of moviegoers. Spotted in his trademark red-and-green striped sweater, Freddy after that greeted his fans with his four-bladed gloves before the screening commenced.

Samuel Bayer, award-winning music video and commercial director (Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams") chose "A Nightmare On Elm Street" as his feature film debut. Producer Brad Fuller said, "One of the things about this movie that's so exciting for us is the concept that if you sleep, you die".

Academy Award-nominated actor Jackie Earle Haley plays Freddy, a role previously helmed by Robert Englund. According to the production notes, each day of shooting means several hours in the makeup chair for Haley. "You sit there for three-and-a-half hours, as these guys meticulously glue stuff all over your entire head, and the last thing they do is put these contact lenses in your eyes; they're oversized; they burn and scratch," he describes. "Then, they add the fake fingertips and I've got knives on this hand. You come out with that, and it really helps put you in the headspace of Freddy Krueger."

After the preview, viewers were asked what they thought about the movie and how many "slashes" would they give out of five.


Gary Liew: "It was a nice movie and it was definitely up to standard since I have watched the 1984 original when I was younger. 4.5 slashes just for you Freddy!"

Imran (Right): "It was a great movie! I watched the original film starring Robert Englund when I was about primary 3 or 4 and I think the remake was pretty good. I'd give it 3.5 slashes."

Ang Mee Leng (Left): "This is one of the most uncomfortable horror movies I have watched so far and luckily I wasn't watching it alone. It was creepy and unpredictable. I encourage everyone to watch it in the cinemas as home viewers might miss out the cinematic experience! 4 slashes!"
