Is There an A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Announcement Coming Soon?
Way back in November of 2019, before the world lit itself on fire and became worse than our dreams could ever conjure, Bloody Disgusting reported that the rights to 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' had gone back to the Wes Craven estate who were were listening to pitches on where to take the franchise. Since however, it's been almost a year and we haven't heard jack diddly.
Now, excuse me for maybe looking to deeply into a studio possibly just wanting to celebrate their elaborate history with an iconic horror franchise during spooky season but New Line Cinema has been posting a LOT to their social medias about Freddy this week. I mean A LOT, a lot. Like, that girl you know on Facebook who makes that same face in all twelve selfies she posts daily or your angry political Uncle a lot. Or maybe your Uncle who likes to dress up like a girl and make duck face selfies. WHATEVER. Point is, it's a lot.
Check it out below:
There's New Line's Instagram as well, which hosts more of the same.
If you will, notice that they are posting these one day at a time. Which means that IF there is more to this than a company celebrating an awesome horror achievement, we'll find out tomorrow!
Please understand that I'm not reporting this as a rumor and there is a solid goddamn chance it means absolutely nothing. However, a girl can dream. This does hold just the tiniest bit of hope that something cool is coming. If not a movie announcement, maybe a new boxset? Maybe some Hypnocil? Maybe go fuck myself!
Either way, if you're now in the Freddy mood check out our youtube channel below, where we'll be doing full movie commentaries on the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise this month. Here's hoping we get something to celebrate tomorrow. It's time!
