Editorial Reviews

Five teenage friends living on one street all dream of a sinister man with a disfigured face, a frightening voice and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. One by one, he terrorizes them within their dreams--where the rules are his and the only way out is to wake up. But when one among them dies, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due. To save themselves, they must plunge into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all: Freddy Krueger. Jackie Earle Haley plays the legendary evildoer in this contemporary reimagining of the seminal horror classic.

OK, so let me start off here by letting you guys know that I grew up watching the original series in the 80's and have been a fan ever since. There's not one single Freddy movie I dislike, not even the cheesy ones, because I think they all brought something new and interesting to the table. Now with that said, what did I think about the remake? Well before going to see this movie, I had absolutely zero expectations knowing that Englund wasn't going to be in it and knowing that the back story of Freddy had changed. When I got out of the theater and the movie was over, I found it entertaining, but not close to being as good as the originals. I liked Jackie Earle Haley's portrayal of Freddy and I think he did a good job as the new Freddy and I hope they continue using him if they make a sequel.
Now What I didn't like was that the movie felt very rushed, none of the characters really made an impression on me before they got killed and I don't even remember any of their names except for Nancy's and the girl who played her wasn't even close to being as believable as Heather Langencamp from the original. One more thing that I didn't like was the change of Freddy's back story. In this movie Freddy use to be a pedophile and after the parents found out they gathered together and chased him down and burned him alive, which makes little sense...

This was not the nightmare on elm street i remember watching when i was young. went from something that was creepy and twisted to being boring and predictable. buy the other 8 films instead of this. it may cost more but you will be getting more bang for your buck.

I had so many hopes for this; I was among the first in line on opening day to see it in the theaters. And immediately afterward, I tried to convince myself that it was great. But there were some things about it (and it applies to a lot of other horror remakes) that gnawed at me and, after a while, I accepted that it wasn't anywhere as close to good as the original. It wasn't because of Jackie Earle Haley's performance as he gave a very interesting interpretation to the character Freddy. Here's why it fell apart:

It tried to be so different from the original that it even excluded all the charm that made the original so popular. In 1984, Nightmare was displayed, at least in part, as an imaginative fantasy with a daydream feel. The remake instead opts to displaying it as a damned established mythology right from the very start. The mythology is the main character. Freddy takes back seat to it. Telling "The Story" is the main point to the remake and thus they make it boring. In the original, the story is incidental and is only revealed in enough an extent as to keep you held to the screen until the next kill/confrontation scene. This is also why the Halloween remakes sucked.

The original movies weren't held back by the pretentiousness of having to Tell It As A Story.

I know you Hollywood guys see remakes as the new big thing and there's no way to talk you out of it. But just remake the damn movies and leave the self-important mythologies at home.

In the original, Nancy pieces it together that the injuries Freddy inflicts on her in her dreams carries over to real life. So we see an actual linear, logical deduction take place during the course of the film. In this recent version, there is no gradual realization of the horrific circumstances.

I never understood the recent outcropping of horror remakes. I've seen a number of them, and I really don't understand them after watching them. What's the point?. More often than not, they are not any good, and suck all of the originality, cleverness, spirit, atmosphere, and scares out of the original concept. They all seem to be glossy, over-produced pieces of MTV entertainment for young modern audiences with shortened attention spans. The re-boot of "A Nightmare On Elm Street" is no different. To me, this, and the replacement of Robert Englund, was the most offensive of all the re-makes. I thought RZ's "Halloween" films took the cake, but this one being remade hit home more for me. Let's get started....

A good helping of the story should be familiar to everybody. There's no need to go into great detail about it or the story since it's basically the same, but with some differences. Freddy Krueger worked at a pre-school as a gardner, and a bunch of parents chased him down and burned him alive when it was suspected that he was molesting the kids there. Now, some of those kids are teenagers(Yeah, right)in high school, and they are beginning to have nightmares about this strange, burned man in a fedora, red and green striped sweater, and razor fingered glove, who can kill you for real in your dreams. Yeah, we know the story. As Freddy picks the kids off one by one, the remaining survivors try to stay alive, and awake, and survive this nightmare. The audience will be trying to stay awake as well.

It's hard to have your review come across as honest to fans of the remakes. There is so much hate out there for remakes, but they do have their fans too. Some people will think a bashing review is just some fan boy who wouldn't give it a positive one even if it deserved it.
