Nightmare on Elm Street

I'm not sure how many people watch MTV on a regular basis, but I'm guessing there's not a lot on here. So these new TV spots should be exciting to see because they were made for them and I don't think that many people have seen these yet. Click 3X was hired to create three new TV spots for the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street remake that "interrupt" the promo that's being aired with a really creative and often creepy transition that flows right into the TV spot then resume back into the promo like nothing happened. These are actually pretty awesome and the second one is the best. I've included all three below, so check them out!

Don't forget you can watch the first teaser trailer and full-length final theatrical trailer at those two links!

A new reimagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people inside their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality, too.

A Nightmare on Elm Street is directed by first-time filmmaker Samuel Bayer, who got his start directing commercials. The screenplay was co-written by Eric Heisserer and Wesley Strick (The Saint, Doom). This is a remake of Wes Craven's original Nightmare on Elm Street horror classic from 1984. New Line / Warner Brothers is bringing A Nightmare on Elm Street to theaters on April 30th just before summer arrives.

    That's pretty good! That must be really unusual for commercials yet definitely something original and unexpected which I think is the desired effect.
  • A Red and Green Jumper that is smelly
    This looks hilariously bad. I'm betting Platinum Dunes is just another name for 'The Asylum.' But go on everybody, jump onto the bandwagon! It'll be funny when it rolls off a cliff and falls down into a bottomless pit where all the putrid shit resides.

    When you look close at the make up on Freddy it looks false, it looks like a Rubber mask. The make up look disapointing on the remake.
  • GOD
    Whole movie gonna suck, frieddy aint looking scary AT ALL his voice is flat and boring movie is NOT YET rated, I bet it will be pg-13 couse peps that already seen movie told that there isnt any special gore or something few blood here and there and thats all its gonna be worst remake then halloween2

    "When you look close at the make up on Freddy it looks false, it looks like a Rubber mask. The make up look disapointing on the remake." Because Roberts looked like a real burn victim? LOL
  • Mungo
    Spots would have been creepier without the voice over and credits.
  • Alex
    I'm going to definitely see it. I have no expectations. Meh. I don't like Freddy's voice too much. And his lines from the trailer are kinda cheesy.
  • Brian Ricci
    I think it's going to be great. When Michael Bay is producing it's usually a hit in my opinion. Texas Chainsaw, Friday the 13th, Amityville. I wasn't a fan of The Hitcher but these 3 were good.
  • Lincoln
    It's gonna be great. Haters won't change the fact that people are going to watch this movie.
  • Shizzlefits
    What a cool idea and you're right, #2 is the best. I just can't seem to get excited for this. *shrugs*
  • MikeDaSpike
    You all suck... This is gonna rule!
  • Kruger Jr.
    Pfft! it could have been better if they didn't go so far as to showing a bit of a trailer for the movie... a little slash there and here... and/or sudden appearance of blurry face of freddy would have been more intriguing...
  • tra la la la la di da
    Wow that was lame. Only MTV can suck that bad.
  • ImaginaryVisionary
    The concept from a marketing perspective is brilliant. 2 ad's in one, not bad. But as far as execution, I think they could have been better. Take away the voice over and the storyline editing, and just show clips of freddy and his claws at a rapid pace...with maybe that quote "why are you screaming, I haven't even cut you yet" at the very end, and then fade back into the promo....and I think they would have achieved and even better WTF moment! (which is probably what they were going for with these) I honestly think when a lot of people see these they're just going to think it's a technical glitch.

    im with #4
  • einah
    Man, I wish it was just the distortion with no clips from the movie or anything.
  • Ben
    Hey guys... catch new episodes of ABDC on Thursdays at 10
  • Bash
    Have to agree, Freddys face in the original series looked 'better'. However, these spots and the first trailer brought back the feeling of suspense I had when I saw the original in my teens. Based on that, I'm in.
  • Jacob Crim
    I really don't see how the original makeup looked better when he did not even look like a burn victim lol
  • Swarley
    All three looked crappy. Michael Bay is horrible too. All anyone has to say is Pearl Harbor. Strangers was the last decent horror movie. Anyone that says Paranormal has no brain.
  • ryderup
    Cool idea, bad execution. And the CG in the spots looks bad.. really bad... Compare him coming out of the wall to the original scene...
  • tim
    strangers. lol. that was as scary and ninja turtles 2 secret of the ooze.
  • rofl
    He couldn't have used a different voice? He sounds too much like Rorschach to even be deemed scary lol.
