The new version of the classic 80′s horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street opens in theaters next Friday April 30 but today we get to check one more very cool (tho EXTREMELY irritating) promo item to get us jazzed for the film’s release.

As you may know, motion posters can only exist online because they are not static images only. Motion posters employ motion and sound to create a more attention-grabbing promo experience … and they are very effective.

Ahhhhh!! Is that not the coolest and most irriating thing you’ve ever seen/heard?

Cool, huh? Are any of y’all planning on seeing A Nightmare on Elm Street next week? I’ll be there for sure!
