What does a horror fan do when he gets sick of waiting around for the big wigs over in Hollywood to get off their asses and actually make a film? Well he goes out and makes a trailer for a movie that isn’t even filming yet.
Or at least that’s what Christopher Johnson IV did about a month ago in the hopes of actually landing the role of Freddy Krueger in the Platinum Dunes reboot currently scheduled for a June 16th, 2010 release. By now we all know that Jackie Earle Haley will be playing Kruger but still this video shows some real chutzpah and imagination on Johnson’s part. The idea that Freddy would be walking around with his face on fire is a different take on the horror icon all together, and probably makes him a lot of fun at parties. You can even check out his blog for some behind the scenes info on the making of the trailer.
We might be seeing a new trend here folks. I think I'm going to dress up as a big ass goblin-truck and film myself running over shit just in case they ever decide to remake “Maximum Overdrive”.
