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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

An expectedly worthless horror-movie remake from Michael Bay's production company...

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.

Do not, let me repeat that, DO NOT, watch the new A Nightmare on Elm Street.

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 bland, unncessary return to Freddyland

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.

Though no worse than the raft of terrible Elm Street sequels, this remake misses some of the surreal and anarchic low-budget energy Craven brought to his film (not to mention Johnny Depp).

The nightmare on Elm Street is not how scary (or not) the film is, but how it destroys the franchise.
