Horror posters have been king on Gordon and the Whale today (with the ALICE trailer being queen), and now we have another one to add to the mix. Earlier today we got our first look at Jackie Earle Haley playing Freddy Krueger in the upcoming NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake, and just a few hours later we have the first official poster for the film.

Haley, who I think most of us can agree did a brilliant job on WATCHMEN, is bringing his own brand of horror to the franchise. The new film promises to be darker and scarier than the more recent NIGHTMARE films, which I think have turned Krueger into a bit of a caricature, rather than the madman that used to keep me up at night when I was little.

The poster continues the mystery of today's earlier picture by presenting Freddy in a silhouette rather than showing his make-up, which is being described by Aintitcool.com as much more "realistic."
