Approaching the 10th Anniversary of Nightmare on Elms Street, Heather Langenkamp, star of the original film, is getting harassed by calls and things take a dark turn when her husband turns up in a car accident with slash marks. She learns that Wes Craven is working on a new nightmare film, and he and Robert Englund also know something strange is going on. Freddy has come back, but this time it's real. -- Chris Kavan

Craven returns to give us the best thing since the first Nightmare. Great story, with exceptional acting and some actual scare.

Out of this particular movie series, I've only ever saw the first one and this one. I like them both.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 + Good vs. Evil: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 7.5/10 or 75%. Hands down the best in the Freddy series to date. We get back the original director and he has a fun time with his thinking cap on. The other entries are simply movies now and Robert Englund shows up as himself to talk about playing Freddy. Then, Freddy appears and reboots everything on a great story within a story note.

The best Nightmare - the whole movie within a movie works really well and is quite unnerving. Even if this one doesn't have a lot of blood, it's a whole lot scarier on the psychological level. Good way to end the series.

New Nightmare is very good

Wes Craven's New Nightmare was a nice movie. Freddy Krueger crosses over to the real world wear famous actors from the franchise like Heather Langenkamp and Wes Craven portray themselves and have well developed rolls in this film. However, this is only my 5th favorite in the series.
Problems:
1. Freddy Krueger's makeup. He looks super hideous and vulgar. The original makeup in the previous films were cool, but this is just plain ugly.
2. Freddy's form is now the "Entity" form. OH COME ON! Are you kidding me? Freddy was already real.
3. Death scenes. There are 4 kills in this movie: 3 are males and they ALL DIE IN THE FIRST 30 MINUTES WHILE THE 4TH KILL WAS A FEMALE WHO DIED 1 HOUR AND 20 MINUTES IN THE FILM! FREDDY'S DEAD WAS SEXIST FOR FREDDY ONLY KILLING MALES, BUT THIS IS...
