Like Rob Zombie's Halloween, this new take on A Nightmare on Elm Street gives a movie boogeyman a psychological makeover, though Samuel Bayer directs the thing with all the nuance of a "Stranger Danger" video.
This dude has some terrible taste in movies.

This movie sucked and so does anyone who liked it. It wasn't fun, it wasn't funny, it wasn't scary, it wasn't interesting... It was nothing. And all the jump scenes were stupid. That's the only element of horror the film had going for it, but jump scenes do not make a horror movie scary at all. They're stupid. It's like someone telling a bad joke, but they tickle you to make you laugh while they're telling it, and then they claim the joke was funny because you laughed. The jump scenes might spook you for a split second, I know a few scenes made me jump, but after that split second you're not in the least bit scared. You just get bored again. Jump scenes do not make a horror movie and I don't care how many people disagree with me. Sometimes when I'm watching Seinfeld, Kramer will enter Jerry's apartment really fast and if it's unexpected it might make me jump, but that doesn't make Seinfeld a horror/comedy. The Exorcist is probably the scariest film I've ever seen and there's not one scene that made me jump, but I did feel creeped out and very tense through the whole experience. Now THAT is horror, not lazy jump scenes. They're like those youtube videos that are all quiet then at the last second a zombie face will pop up lol. How do you react? You get a quick shock, then you laugh, but sadly, after the quick shocks in the Nightmare remake you don't laugh or feel scared (unless you're 12), you just yawn and space out until the next one happens.
The only good thing I can say about this remake is that it made the Friday The 13th remake look a lot better and less of a screw up. Seriously. Michael Bay... Stop producing horror remakes. Please. Your exploding, empty-headed teen flicks are alright, but these remakes are truly pathetic. I will say one thing though, Michael Bay sure knows how to make money off selling people a crappy product. He at least deserves credit for that. No one can deceive a target audience like Michael Bay.
