Backstory: It’s been over 25 years since “A Nightmare on Elm Street” introduced a new horror icon to teen audiences. Freddy Kreuger represented a new kind of villain as he terrorized victims in their sleep. The movie introduced Johnny Depp to audiences and spawned a franchise that included eight feature films. The original concept is getting a reboot with Jackie Earle Haley in the lead role and a new crop of young actors. The reboot delves further into Freddy’s history and casts a more sympathetic light on his actions. The cast and director appeared at WonderCon to promote the movie, which opens April 30.
