What a terrible remake that kills what's so good in the 1984 film.

Again the people who rate genres they don't like anyways ugh..Well the scope on this one was a let down, they turned Freddy into a pedophile which he never was in the original. The original plot was Freddy was just a child/teen killer haunting your dreams and turning them into a living nightmare. Freddys daughter was taken from him after they found out he was a killer. Anyways without the pedophile storyline the movie wasn't too bad but Kellan Lutz couldn't pull off Robert Englund. The originals are still where it's at...

I've never been a big fan of the originals & I didnt see why a remake had to be done.This was an alright movie but it was exactly like watching Nightmare On Elm Street without the original Freddy Krueger.The only thing I can think of that would've made this movie as good as the original was bringing back Robert Englund.I did love the ending though..

Freddy's back? Well, not really.

When I heard A Nightmare on Elm Street was getting a remake I managed to keep an open mind. I'm not of the school of thought that all remakes are terrible. Still, even though the original series ended up becoming more dark comedy later in its run, the original movie is hard to beat. This one is significantly darker than the original putting a lot more focus on the pedophile aspect of the villain and throwing in some child pornography to boot. So I will say the character of Freddy is more menacing. Jackie Earl Haley wasn't terrible but for me he wasn't Freddy. Plus, I felt like the cast playing the teens weren't as strong as they should have been. I might watch it again at some point and give it another chance but overall I just felt like the original is more worth my time.

Rorschach with a different mask

This movie is worth watching only because Jackie Earle Haley is awesome in the role. There's a lot of debate over who's better, Haley or Englund, but in my opinion they are two different characters with burned faces, a claw and a sweet sweater and hat ensemble. The new Freddy is portrayed as a creepy pedophile who comes back to massacre the kids who got him killed while the old Freddy was a child murderer who got off on a technicality and was burned alive. This movie, like all the unnecessary Michael Bay remakes, focuses too much on jump scares, pretty victims and jump scares as well as a few jump scares tossed in for good measure. It's not scary, but Haley is scary and creepy. Personally i wish they'd just make an Elm street movie where Freddy just slaughters tons of people. That's what ...

Even Nightmares Can Become Dull

Directed by Samuel Bayer
Starring Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Rooney Mara, Kellan Lutz, and Jackie Earle Haley

This re-imagining of the popular horror classic is not bad nor is it good. I personally was never bored throughout the film but it did suffer from some major problems. This film severely lacked creativity which made the dream sequences feel slightly dull and seem a bit uninteresting. The characters are a bit one dimensional but that is expected from horror films, and ultimately this film offers nothing new that the original films didn't already deliver. Despite those flaws, I have to admit that I was entertained by this film. As far as remakes go, this film was far more impressive than I expected it to be. Some of the cast members were quite good while others ...

jackie earle haley was definitely awesome and i'll say it, scarier than englund was. Englund, by no fault of his one, turned the role into something like the chucky doll, more of a mark hamill joker than a heath ledger joker if you get what i mean. The only that sucks about this series is the body count is usually pretty low. That's what made Jason such an awesome slasher villain: he just killed anything and everything.

Saw it, liked it. I have to admit Freddy looked a bit like a chipmunk or something at times but I thought it could have used a bit of nudity like other good horror movies and a little less of the emo kids. The back story was pretty cool. For a re-imagination I have to say I have seen a hell of a lot worse. 2.5 stars almost 3

Early indicators point to upwards of $35 million - and sequel talks have already started. Looks like people were in the mood for horror.

Not really a prediction, but there you go.

Why do they keep remaking these horror movies. It is not like the original was good? Oh well. There is nothing worth a crap coming out this weekend so I might as well see the new Nightmare on Elm Street.
