Critics Consensus: Nightmare, Vengeance Both Get Panned

Summary

This week at the movies, we've got the return of Freddy Krueger A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Jackie Earle Haley and Kyle Gallner) and some angry rodents (Furry Vengeance, starring Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields). What do the critics have to say? Freddy Krueger, one of horror cinema's most iconic killers, is back to terrorize the teens of Springwood. Unfortunately, say critics, the new incarnation of A Nightmare on Elm Street is stale stuff, lacking the imagination and scares of its predecessors. Critics say Furry Vengeance is no Over the Hedge; instead, it's a mirthless, aggressively dumb family comedy that substitutes slapstick violence for laughs or a message. Back to Article
