While we wait for the Platinum Dunes' Elm Street trailer to make its online debut, I figured it would be a good time to get all the other trailers up on the site. TrailerAddict.com has them all so I'm going to using their videos instead of YouTube. If anyone has the official synopsis for the films, that would be helpful.
Marge Thompson is a drunk. It's that simple. As the mother of Nancy, nurturing is just not what she does. Drinking to escape (mentally anyway) what she and the rest of the Elm Street parents did to Fred Krueger is the only thing she lives for. Denial consumes her when Nancy tries to tell her about her dreams. Marge eventually confesses what she helped do to Krueger and attempts to redeem herself. Sadly, she was one of Krueger's final victims....for now.
Lt. Donald Thompson does not like unsolved murders. Especially ones that his daughter, Nancy, is mixed up in. Thompson simply wants to solve the case of Tina Gray’s murder, and make sure Nancy gets a good night‘s rest. Between his daughter slowly breaking down, his alcoholic wife, and a haunted past that’s about to come back from the dead, frankly, Donald is being pulled in too many directions to really be effective anywhere.
Everyone in Springwood was not as nice and clean cut as our heroine, Nancy. Rod Lane was the bad boy of Elm Street. He was also the on again, off again apple of Tina Gray’s eye. He was in the room with Tina when she was murdered by Freddy, and in a moment fright, thought it best to leave the crime scene. Springwood’s Police Department, led by Nancy’s father, Donald, arrested him while he was pleading his case to her.
Tina Gray was Freddy Krueger's first victim during one of the best death scenes in Nightmare franchise history. Her boyfriend Rod Lane was blamed for her death even though he was innocent. Played by Amanda Wyss.

A Nightmare On Elm Street is one of the most iconic and inspiring horror films. It is such a haunting film that has everything; great characters, gory and original deaths, a creative story, and interesting concepts. It merges the lines of reality and fiction, taking away any safety net and taking us in to a dimension where nightmares are a reality and nothing is impossible. You really care for the characters, which is one thing that makes it stand apart from the average slasher. Nancy is easy to sympathize with and one of the stronger female characters of horror.
