A Nightmare on Elm Street Reviews
Other than that, there's really not much to say about this remake. It's a mite darker than most contemporary horror fare, and there are some inventive visual flourishes, but other than that it's almost totally forgettable.
Nate's Grade: C-
And by the way....Awful....just awful sound mixing. If you can't scare people with what's on the screen. Super loud jump scares is a stupid way to make up for it. Embarassing.
So many good lines to make fun of. :)
Director: Samuel Bayer
Summary: Freddy Krueger, a serial killer who crosses the boundary between dreams and the waking world to gut his victims with his razor-sharp blade-fingered glove.
My Thoughts: "This is as craptastic as a remake of a GREAT HORROR FILM can get. I am a HUGE fan of the original, which was my first scary film as a youngster that did it's job of scaring the sh*t out of me.. I couldn't sleep for weeks. That is a horror film. This.. this was a poor excuse of a film. A sad attempt to create what is, and will forever be one of the BEST horror films ever made. The Nancy in this version might as well have been asleep throughout the entire film. She was so boring. She gave no life to her character. What a sad Freddie Krueger.. His make-up was as bad as his acting. He wasn't scary at all and didn't have the same essence as the great Robert Englund. The material was as bland as these characters. The film is suppose to make you afraid to fall asleep, not put you to sleep."
