Horror fans finally get a look at the new Freddy Krueger

This image comes curtesy of HorrorBid, and it’s our first clear look at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger.

There’s been a lot of secrecy behind the new look of the film’s main antagonist, but from the start reports were coming out that the burns would be more realistic looking than previous incarnations.  Personally I like the look, it firmly establishes that this is a whole new ball game.  I’ve heard the script doesn’t go as bold as the new look but we’ll have to wait and see. 

I like Haley, he was absolutely phenomenal in Watchmen, and I think he has what it takes to make this franchise good again.  Be sure to click the image for a bigger picture.
