4.0 out of 5 stars Retelling NOT a Remake 27 May 2014
By A.M.E
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Although hated or disliked by most I personally feel that this film was of a high standard. It is the only film I have seen at the cinema 3 times!
Like my title says it needs to be remembered that unlike Psycho etc they didn't just update the film and remake the original they took the story and made it new.
Yes on the downside the digital work could have been better and made the overall edge of Freddy a little less scary but with the character they went much darker and even the 'quips' seemed more threatening than the original dark humour. Mr.Haley plays a great villain and is scary in a different way to Mr.Englund that is for definite!
With plenty of doffs of the hat (see start of movie and the sheep run across the screen etc) to the original they certainly kept the strange dream feel alive whilst bringing in modern thinking of sleep and dreams.
The characters weren't that well fleshed out and there was no real empathy towards them which again was a problem for many but then really how much was there in the original?
Making Freddy a child molester upset a lot of people too even though this was how the original was initially intending to take the character!! Along with this many have felt that the basic story was changed too much, well I say change can be good.
Whilst in the cinema I saw a younger generation come in and for the first time in a long time actually JUMP at scenes and almost hide behind their hands like the days of old. In a society where Horror movies have had to become more extreme with desensitisation it was good to see the classic scares being given an update and actually work where so many modern films fail!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Nightmare that has issues! 7 April 2011
Format:DVD
A Nightmare on Elm Street * * *
New Line Cinema
1000121780 (UK edition)
RT 01:45

`One, two, Freddy's coming for you, three, four, he's at your door' - and so on. Newline brings back one of the cinema's biggest villains in this latest remake. Now, for someone who has seen every one of Mr. Krueger's films over the years, this had to be good. The new cast sounded promising, with Jackie Earle Haley playing Freddy, Kyle Gallner as Quentin Smith, Rooney Mara as Nancy Holbrook, Katie Cassidy as Kris Fowles, Thomas Dekker as Jesse Braun, Kellan Lutz as Dean Russell, Clancy Brown as Headmaster Alan Smith and Connie Britton as Dr. Gwen Holbrook.

The format this time takes us back to the originals roots, with teenagers terrorised in their dreams by Mr Krueger the moment they fall asleep. As anyone who has seen a Freddy film knows, death follows quite sharply afterwards, and indeed in this one after just 10 minutes. With the teenagers deeply troubled and the adults not believing them, Nancy begins to suspect that not all is what it seems. When her mother and the headmaster become evasive about her questioning of past events, it's up to her, Quentin and Jesse to unravel what's happening and to try and save them from Freddy.

As with any Freddy film, the mood is captured perfectly. From the initial diner set up, with a lovely switch in lighting, Dean is about to meet his maker. It's a credit to the director Samuel Bayer and his cinematographer that they convey just the right amount of tension for major shock value, and they deliver in spades.

What is interesting this time is the back-story of Freddy himself, which for most of the previous films they only skated over.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'FALL ASLEEP' - 'AND YOU'LL DIE' 2 Sep 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Re-makes do often have a problem especially as in this case, it's of a true 'Horror' classic.
Well, they have delibertly tried to make it somewhat different but have not captured the genius that 'Wes Craven' brought to the screen way back when, the original did i feel have a greater sense of tension and shock built in along with a 'tongue in cheek' delivery.
This film doesn't quite capture the same atmosphere, yet it does have one or two 'jump out of your seat' moments, along with some brief spells of tension.
Watch it ? ---yes you'll enjoy it more if you don't try to compare it with the original 'Robert Englund' version.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT! 22 Oct 2010
By JAY81UK
Format:Blu-ray
People need to stop comparing this to the original. Just think of it as a modern day Freddy movie. I loved it. I love all the Elm Street movies, and this wasn't a let down. I love how they've included something from each elm street film as a wink/nod to the fans. Great movie and lots of jumps scares and shocks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch (and then an eBay listing). 22 April 2014
Format:DVD
Quite a pedestrian remake with the only originality being lifted from the original.
Unlike some remakes (Halloween,Hills,Dawn,Carrie or Black Xmas,which for offered something new for me) this doesn't inspire repeated viewings.
It has no characterisation,therefore the deaths don't have any impact.However it is quite entertaining and the new Freddy is pretty effective.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can I have my money back please? 13 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
I will be blunt. I hated the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The redesign of Freddy's appearance doesn't sit too well with me. I had heard that the crew were going to make Freddy scary again. This really didn't materialise. I'd actually prefer Robert Englund in the role of Freddy using the original make-up that has made the character a classic.

The `witty' one-liners that Krueger comes out with are just terrible and had me cringing at multiple points during the movie, "how's this for a wet dream?" springs to mind. Uttered when Nancy is running down a hall and the floor turns to some kind of tar-like substance. Other cringe-worthy one-liners include "I'm your boyfriend now", "your mouth says no but your body says yeeeeessssssss" and "I'm your nightmare". Truthfully, most of them are taken from the previous films, but they really don't age well at all.

On a more positive note, the re-tooling of Freddy's background was an effective alteration. In the original, Freddy is a child murderer, but in this "reimagining" he is a child molester. This helps significantly in making him more evil and really pushes you more towards hating the man. Rooney Mara is also specifically notable as her fantastic portrayal of Nancy brings the rating of the film up a little.

Nevertheless, this isn't enough to save this abysmal remake. Awful CGI (the blood Nancy falls out of in a dream), poor story progression and ineffective plot twists, not to mention the various obvious plot-holes and mistakes altogether with the fact that it's just not scary make this very so-so indeed.
