Katie Cassidy Will Die Before She Wakes in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’


Katie Cassidy, daughter to ’70s teen idol David Cassidy, stars in Platinum Dunes upcoming remake of the Wes Craven classic A Nightmare on Elm Street. The 23-year-old hottie takes on the role of Tina (now named Kris) played by Amanda Wyss (The Graves) in the original.


I was just a little tween Muertos when I saw Elm Street in ’84 and Tina’s death scene played a number on my fragile young mind, frightening me with its intensity—yet giving me wood at the sight of Tina’s panties while she was thrown from wall-to-wall. It remains one of my favorite moments in horror.


Cassidy’s previous horror creds include the lead in Dimension Films’ 2006 Black Christmas remake, Screen Gems’ When a Stranger Calls remake, The Lost, and, most recently, the television serials “Supernatural” and “Harper’s island.”


A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010 is directed by Samuel Bayer and costars Rooney Mara as Nancy Thompson, Twilight’s Kellen Lutz, and Jackie Earle Haley as child molester/killer Freddy Krueger. The film arrives in theaters on April 30.
