‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Trailer Hits 1.6m Views, Slows BD

Sunday at midnight MySpace revealed the first trailer for New Line Cinema’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, which featured your first look at the Platinum Dunes produced remake arriving in theaters April 30. Since then, the trailer has received 1.6 million views on MySpace, making it one of the top videos ever on the social networking site. In fact, the trailer was so popular here on Bloody Disgusting it slowed the site to a screeching halt (you may have noticed the slow performance all day yesterday) and forced us to make some changes to our comment section.

The films’ premise centers on Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley), a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.
