Ultimately, the remake plays out more like the parade of increasingly daft sequels that milked the last drop of blood out of the Krueger franchise.

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

In this outing, however, Wesley Strick and Eric Heisserer's screenplay pulls no punches about Freddy's vicious sadism and paedophilia and, seriously, there's no fun in that.

An expectedly worthless horror-movie remake from Michael Bay's production company...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Compared to the flamboyance of Robert Englund in the 1980s, Jackie Earle Haley as the crazed Freddy Krueger is more lumbering man-child than demonic daddy.

This trip to Elm Street will give you nightmares, but not the kind they anticipated.

This is the worst yet from Michael Bay's horror production company Platinum Dunes, which also brought you rubbish re-makes of Halloween and Friday the 13th.

Is there any movie franchise that cries out less for revisiting than A Nightmare on Elm Street?

It's not a good film, but if you're feeling jaded and just want to watch a demonic killer pound his fist through the chest of some hapless, cardboard teenager, then this might just scratch that itch.

After giving a great performance in "Watchmen," what was Jackie Earle Haley doing in this film, besides making a buck or two? Extremely disappointing remake and creepier than the original, but not in a good way. Paul Chambers, CNN.

It's the Bay touch you feel in the way actors register as body count, characters go undeveloped, and sensation trumps feeling. A nightmare, indeed.

its primary effect is to leave you less thrilled than simply asking what's the point in remaking something if you can't improve on the original?

To call the film patterned to fit would be a blazing understatement.

A recurring Nightmare.

A bland, unncessary return to Freddyland
May 10, 2010
It's all efficiently done and gory but director Samuel Bayer adds so little to the old familiar scare story that you wonder why they didn't just save a bob or two and reissue the Robert Englund original.
