The new Nightmare is more dull than scary; it mimics the original in some respects, following the same rough plot outline and replicating most of the more iconic scenes, but everything that's different feels wrong.

Haley earns his stripes but Bayer's reboot is a bland anticlimax.

Jackie Earle Haley is a good choice to replace Englund but the new film doesn?t reinvigorate the franchise.

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.

The best part of the film is the musical score; the worst part is everything else. (Blu-ray Edition)
