Regular readers of Horror Freak News know we’re huge fans of the concept trailers created by skilled videographer Tommy Ross. His visions for Beetlejuice 2, Evil Dead 2, and Jaws: Resurface make us wish these films were real! Yesterday, Ross unleashed a nightmarish reimagining of an old classic.

Give Elm Street a spin below and let us know what you think in the Comments section! Would you be excited to see a Nightmare reboot if it looked this good—even if someone besides Robert Englund played Freddy? Let’s discuss!
Official Synopsis: My FAN MADE concept trailer for a reboot/sequel to the iconic horror franchise, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I want a new Elm Street film more than I want mental stability. Considering how imaginative, eccentric, and creative the Elm Street films are, I think that a new film told with today’s modern technology could be really mind-blowing.
I’m actually shocked New Line Cinema (the king of the genre right now), hasn’t greenlit a new film. Horror is hotter than its ever been (horror used to never make over $100 million domestically, but The Conjuring franchise, Get Out, IT, A Quiet Place, and a few others have all surpassed that milestone) and R-rated horror is even more successful than PG-13 horror at the moment. Do y’all realize that IT (2017) made over $700 million worldwide? That’s insane.
