A Nightmare on Elm Street Reviews

Examiner.com

Many people have already made the mistake of holding this film up to the original, expecting it to be just as good, but it just isn't. However, taken on its own, it's still an entertaining horror film and an interesting take on the material.

An homage to Craven's vision that is believably earnest in execution and completely faithful in spirit.

Mara and Gallner make an attractive couple on the lam and Haley, as Freddy Krueger, hams it up to an almost alarming degree.

I did jump a few times, and I liked Haley's dour malevolence, but overall, the new Nightmare on Elm Street is a by-the-numbers bad dream.

Freddy's back -- and he's slicker and more sinister than ever.

Haley just ain't no Englund, no matter how much he tries.

Does it matter that the plot is little more than a cynical, machine-tooled retread of the 1984 original? Debut director Samuel Bayer was not hired to dismantle the franchise but to shoot it afresh.

Complete lack of imagination.

It's well-made and rattles along at a fair old pace, predictably leaving the way open for another 130-odd deaths in the inevitable glut of sequels.

As pointless remakes go, this is by no means the worst of them, thanks to a decent cast and a liberal use of shock and gore, though the 2010 Freddy is significantly less scary than the original.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

The set pieces are well created and Jackie Earle Haley does a fine job (don't forget, he's not only dealing with the character but with the knowledge that Robert Englund will always be associated with the role).

Those who are old enough to have fond memories of the original are probably too old for this Nightmare.

Mindlessly entertaining, slick and stylishly creepy albeit deficient in real surprises and visceral scares. It's a cut above the recent slew of horror remakes.

Jackie Earle Haley is an excellent successor to the original's Robert Englund. Freddy Krueger isn't just scary again, he's the most disturbing he's ever been.

Haley's Krueger doesn't just look like a deeply unhinged burn victim out for gruesome revenge, he is a complete embodiment of evil. And it's terrifying.

This is just Nightmare 9 and you can believe this is the real backstory they never told you before, not that nonsense about the three flying heads.

Where Craven's film was campy, Bayer's movie is just plain dark.

The jump scares, given a little extra oomph by the ever-looming possibility of a double wake-up, do what they're supposed to do. They make you jump.

By focusing on the monster instead of teen iniquities and daring to move past innuendo into fact, this Nightmare surpasses its predecessors to out-menace them all.

The new Nightmare is a straight, shiny, honorable remake.
