A Closer Look at Jackie Krueger

This week I uncovered early shots of Mezco's 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street line, which premiered on Dread Central. Today, I thought we might take a look at the new face of Freddy alongside the classic look for comparison...

As promised by the film makers, Freddy sports a more realistic look, reflecting a horribly burned person rather that what will surely become known as the "good lookin" Englund Freddy, on which was taken plenty of artistic license, creating the dream demon we know and love today. Granted, we are looking at a living dead doll for this little lesson, but beggars can't be choosers and we can make allowances for the rounded baby doll face. Beyond that feature, we have the minimized nose, extremely minimal lips and a general smoothing of all facial features as cartilage is burned away and fused with the remaining tissue and musculature. It's certainly a new take on the creature. Another thing to think about is how this makeup will effect Jackie Earle Haley's speech patterns when delivering lines, as well as emoting at all. Only time will tell!
