Supported Causes
Faces of Kibera is a New York State nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping the rising number of orphans in Kibera, Kenya. Kibera is the largest slum in East Africa. With an estimated one million people concentrated in one square mile, the living conditions in Kibera are desperate for all, and particularly difficult for the children. Our goal is to push back against this tide of poverty, illness and deprivation by creating and supporting a community-based facility outside of Kibera to provide care, education and services to the orphans of Kibera.

You just can’t keep a good man, or murderer, down. Long before the days of one-liners and product placement, the original Freddy Krueger was a pretty dark and demonic figure. He was a child murderer hunted down by the parents of his victims and burned alive. He returned to take his vengeance by tormenting and brutally slaying his captor’s children in their nightmares as they laid helpless, tucked into their beds.

To offer a little backstory, the Krueger character was first born out of the imagination of Wes Craven, who directed the first film and later returned for New Nightmare. Craven got the idea from a series of news stories about a young man from a Southeast Asia war camp who was suffering from intense nightmares, claiming someone was stalking him while he slept. He kept himself awake for days. When he finally did drift off, the family heard screaming and thrashing. They came rushing to his room and found him stone cold dead. Krueger’s look was based on a homeless man Craven had seen out his bedroom window as a child. The man turned when he felt someone watching him and locked eyes with a terrified young Wes.

Six sequels and a battle with Jason later, Freddy was a far cry from his dark origins. After being made into dolls, appearing on children’s lunch boxes and even VJ’ing for MTV, Krueger had grown into an icon of pop culture, less monster and more comedian, spouting catch phrases and cackling like a witch as fans cheered on his next kill. At a certain point, the question became, where exactly could Freddy go next?

After a long pursuit, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes finally acquired the rights to the next movie. Though the work of Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Texas Chainsaw, Amityville, Friday the 13th) has been uneven at times, the duo admitted to a certain passion for Mr. Krueger. Their plan was to bring Freddy back to his roots. “The first Nightmare on Elm Street was a scary, straight ahead horror movie,” said Form. “As they went on, they became more funny. We wanted ours to feel much more real.”

Dunes received the usual skepticism and outcries from fanboys, but they turned heads and silenced many critics by casting Jackie Earle Haley as Krueger. “Jackie brings something else to it that audiences will respond to,” said Fuller. “The fact that we have a guy who was nominated for an Academy Award playing Freddy Krueger is very exciting to us. It feels like it elevates our movie.”

Dark Horizons was amongst a select group of press invited to the Chicago sets of Elm Street last summer. As a longtime fan of the series, I went into the warehouse with an open mind, still a bit skeptical but also quite hopeful. Casting Haley meant they were taking this movie seriously, that they were going for a darker tone and stepping back from the cheesy grandstanding Freddy has become known for.

The visit took place on day 38 of the 46 day shoot. On arrival, we are greeted by Fuller and Form. Although they have always been receptive to online press, they seem noticeably more enthusiastic than past visits I’d done for Texas Chainsaw: The Beginning and Amityville Horror. Fuller, always the salesman of the two, grins widely, telling us the production has been going very, very well.

The first scene we observe occurs towards the end of the script. Nancy (Rooney Mara) and Quentin (Kyle Gallner) have discovered the basement where Freddy first did his dirty deeds. When Mara enters the room, Gallner sits in a chair looking dazed. He starts to shake and convulse before screaming in agony.

At this late point in the story, the characters have been sleep deprived for days and no amount of caffeine or energy drink is cutting it any longer. They’ve begun to experience a phenomenon called micro-naps in which the brain slips into a dream state for seconds at a time.

“This scene is way at the end of the movie,” Mara tells press. “We’ve found the preschool that we’ve been looking for. We go into the basement. I was just in Freddy’s old bedroom. Basically at the end, there are so many micro-naps, you never know what’s real and what’s a micro-nap. What I just shot isn’t real, it’s still a part of a dream. And you’ll see that when we film the second half.”

As director Samuel Bayer commands from behind a cluster of monitors, Gallner lets out a few more screeches and howls before the director is satisfied. “I think a couple more, I would have been fried,” says Gallner. Press commend the actor on his scream queen skills. “I think it helps because it echoes through the whole building, but thank you,” Gallner says, laughing.

As the crew sets up for the following take, we head to the cast trailers outside. It’s time for the moment we’ve all been waiting for, meeting Mr. Krueger in the flesh. Up until this point, we hadn’t seen so much as a glimpse of Freddy’s new look, so we were more than a little taken aback when the slightly diminutive Jackie Earle Haley walked up to us, grinning and waving a polite hello. The detailed makeup covers his face and shoulders, though he was not yet in full costume. Instead, Freddy sported sneakers and gym clothing. Kind of hard to picture Freddy getting fit.

“It gets a little fuzzy in all of this makeup,” Haley tells press. “It gets kind of warm so hopefully I’ll make some sort of sense.”

By now you’ve probably gotten a glimpse of Krueger’s new look from the trailer and the shots of the forthcoming models and toys, but in person it is even more off-putting. Less the precise, symmetrical burns of the Robert Englund makeup, this look is that of a horribly charred burn victim. The burns are uneven, skin pulled taut and stretched out in all different directions. His ears are bent and burned, almost melted into the side of his head. The look is effective, even possibly making the observer feel a tad bit sympathetic. “It’s pretty encumbering,” says Haley. “It feels like crap when you’re sitting around, but it’s kind of oddly motivating for the character between action and cut because it’s just such a weird feeling.” Haley added that the process took about three hours and 20 minutes. • Read full story »

A Nightmare on Elm Street has listed one of the ‘2010 Most Anticipated Films‘.

29. A Nightmare on Elm Street
Release Date: April 30

The Who: Directed by Samuel Bayer; Starring Jackie Earle Haley

The Pitch: Horror fans are on claws and needles here, seeing a music video director handle the fragile, delicate nostalgia of their upbringing, but seeing Freddy on screen is enough to make me climb up the wall. And drag myself across the ceiling. Fingers crossed that it’s more Dream Warriors than Freddy’s Dead.

A Nightmare on Elm Street, the remake of Wes Craven’s classic horror film, comes out in April, but Freddy Krueger himself—Jackie Earle Haley—was still hard at work over the holidays, shooting additional footage.

“We did do some re-shoots over the Christmas holidays, and I feel really good about that,” Haley said in a group interview this week in Pasadena, Calif., where he was promoting his upcoming Fox TV show Human Target.

Re-shoots are relatively common, though they sometimes indicate problems with the initial production. That’s not the case here, as there wasn’t anything that needed to be fixed, just little additions to make scenes better. “Just some re-shoots and tweaks that I think are probably customary for pretty much every movie that gets made,” Haley said.

The re-shoots included new shots for the film’s signature dream sequences, in which Freddy torments the movie’s teen sleepers. That required Haley again to wear Freddy’s full burn makeup. “Yes, I was tortured all Christmas,” he joked. • Read full story »

Let’s face it, every year there’s only a handful of movies that everyone who dares call himself a fanboy is dying to see. 2010 is no exception, with titles like “Iron Man 2?, “Prince of Persia”, and “Jonah Hex” on the slate, to name just three. Here is our extremely early preview of the 10 movies you should be keeping an eye on and we’ll be following very closely ahead of their Summer 2010 launch. Some are more fanboyish than others, but they’re all definitely intriguing.

7. A Nightmare On Elm Street (April 30)
Give them credit: Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes boys know how to remake a horror franchise. Or at least, cater to the new breed of horror movie fans. Their latest is “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, and they’ve recruited a fanboy favorite in Jackie Earle Haley to play the lead and music video veteran Samuel Bayer to present the film’s sure-to-be fantastic visuals. The rest of the cast is unimportant, as they’ll either end up dead in the movie or in subsequent sequels. The trick to remaking a franchise like “Nightmare” is to keep as much of the original as possible, like the killer’s iconic image, while still offering up something new in terms of various tweaks. The announcement of an official MPAA rating for the movie should put to bed the question of whether this will be a gruesome horror movie or a PG-13 friendly waste of time. At this point, it could go either way.

Once reluctant to pursue the career that made her older sister, Kate Mara, a movie star, actress Rooney Mara never hesitated to follow a calling that often takes her 7,337 miles from her native Bedford.

In just her early 20s, Rooney Mara is the founder of a charity that benefits young orphans in Kibera, an African slum of about 1 million people living in 1 square mile of Nairobi, Kenya. And through Sunday, her online auction of sports- and entertainment-themed rarities will raise thousands more dollars to help build and support a facility on land she bought for Faces of Kibera.

”I went there, one of the last times I was there, in my pigtails, and bought 6 acres of land,“ she says with a wide smile. ”It was crazy.“

It’s a passion for the Fox Lane High School alumna, born Patricia Rooney Mara, but one she admits can be difficult to sustain with her growing silver-screen success.

”When we started it, I was not working, really, ever,“ she says. ”Now I’m trying to figure it out … I need to do both; I can’t just do acting.“

Following a year stockpiling indie cred with roles in ”Dare,“ ”The Winning Season,“ ”Tanner Hall“ and ”Youth in Revolt,“ she’s poised to star in the mainstream ”Nightmare on Elm Street“ franchise that reboots this April.

”Why not?“ she says, citing ”The Bad Seed“ and ”The Others“ as two of her favorite horror flicks.

It’s a solid start for someone who’d admired her sister’s blockbuster résumé — which includes ”Brokeback Mountain,“ ”We Are Marshall“ and ”Shooter“ — but as a child resisted the occupation, in part due to Kate’s success.

”I always wanted to be an actor, but I was always fighting it,“ Rooney Mara says. ”It never seemed that honorable to me, and I guess I was always afraid that I might fail. … I love my sister and have looked up to her my whole life — to the point of annoying her and wanting to be like her. I followed her around and stole her clothes; I still do.“ • Read full story »
