It's pretty thrilling to see old movies cleaned up and re-released in cinemas, particularly if they're unequivocal classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street.

It's Halloween next month and you can expect the usual rash of cheaply made modern horror flicks to flood into cinemas. We're being spared another Paranormal Activity this year, but it'll be back in 2014. So if you're tired of lame jump scares and found footage tripe, A Nightmare on Elm Street will remind you of a time when horror wasn't hack.

This re-release trailer posted by Empire looks great and you'll be able to catch the movie in full at UK cinemas from October 31st.
