This film is utterly an abomination, it can't lay a candle to any of the unpretentious sequels. You see, the movie just is a cheap replica of the original film, while digging into the child molester part of Fred Krueger far too much. The acting is lazy and uninterested, the score is terrible, and it relies far too much on jumpscares in an attempt to be frightening. The original A Nightmare On Elm Street had a few jumpscares, but they were executed brilliantly. Every shot that is similar to the first one is usually just CGI, missing the innovation and charm of the practical effects. Being a fan of Wes Craven, it is an insult that can't compare in anyway to the most ingenious and brilliant slasher film of all time.
