    all over again, but i am not complaining.

    this is starting all over again, but i am not complaining but with this film, it sort of solve all the whole story of Fred Krueger's origin. with different cast, but some familiar character names. i found this one more understanding of Fred Krueger not the kids. that story doesn't really fit into Fred's. but it may coincide with their story with Krueger. and i also gives this an "A" because there's MORE back-story to our dream killer.

    AWFUL ... I want my time and my money back.

    This new Freddy is a joke. Jackie Earl Haley was about as menacing as my 10 year old nephew ... and about as tall, too. Please don't waste your time on this movie. Watch the original (1984). You will NOT be disappointed. Robert Englund is THE ONLY Freddy that counts. Nightmare 1 and 3 (in my opinion) are the best.

    Highly Recommended

    I took this movie to a friends house and the whole gang (with the exception of two) watched most of the movie and we throughly enjoyed it.
    The original boogie man is back and I am hoping for a sequel with Jackie Earle Haley in the role of Fred Kreuger

    Bridget's Review

    My husband and I are addicted to scary movies. We went to Blockbuster and rented A Nightmare on Elm Street. We both enjoyed it - the plot was good and so was the acting. The only thing I would change is that I would have kept Kellan Lutz in it longer.

    This is an okay remake. The original has better suspense and act

    This is an okay remake. The original has better suspense and acting. Though I guess this has its moments. But still, an okay remake none the less.

    A Moderate Horror Film!

    Jackie Earle Haley made a good impression of Freddy Kreuger, but he does not present the classic wise-cracking Freddy everyone loves and fears. Also, instead of being a completely new film with a new plot, it turned out to steal scenes from some of the other Nightmare on Elm Street films like Freddy coming out of the wall above the main character and Freddy's hand creeping out of the bath tub. Once again, Michael Bay has disappointed me! Still, this was a film that kept you wondering where Freddy will appear and slash his victim.

    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)

    The one thing I hear people say about why this reimagining was made was to give the film franchise a no holds barred, no one liners addition that was truly scary. Robert Englund's orignal performances was said to have gone comical instead of horrifying and I do agree with that statement, but so many people seem to forget that the original NOES is none of those things. The Wes Craven masterpiece is by far one of the scariest films around and this remake does nothing to up the original. Sure Freddy is given a background that keeps you guessing if he did or didn't so the crime, but then why would we really want to know? Also, this remake shows no actual dreamlike phantasmagorical scenes. Freddy is just a man instead of a apparition who can stretch his arms and cut off his own fingers with no side affects. Englund's first performance is kept in shadow for most of the film where in this one you see him in the first scene of the movie - no lead up. It isn't a bad movie and is decently acted, but there is no way this is anywhere close to recreating or upiing the game over Craven's film.
