    Remake Sadness

    I was greatly sadend when it was announced they would be "Remaking" A Nightmare On Elmstreet. I mean the Original is a Classic and find nothing at all arong with it. I will admit, my only reason for purchasing this, was because I had purchased the A Nightmare on Elmstreet collection on Blu-Ray & The Friday The 13th collection on blu-ray. And Found that the Friday the 13th Collection included the Remake of the Friday the 13th. And figured, dispite my disappointment, I might as well round it out & purchase the A nightmare on Elstreet remake as well. I will say that dispite my disappointment in having a remake, it's not really that bad. The f/x are much better than the original. They actually show Freddy getting burned to death. And the way they Make Freddy look, is a little scarier. But you know something? Despite that, I am still a die hard fan of the original. I don't regret purchasing the Remake but sometimes a remake isn't needed when the original was allready good.

    Horrible remake

    It's unfortunate because I was SO excited for this movie. As a huge fan of the Nightmare franchise, especially the original, I was definitely on the hype train. However, what became of this remake was something much less desirable. The dialogue is so poor to where a conversation goes something like this: "x person is dead.' ' I'm coming over.' Okay". Topple that with subpar acting and an extremely bizarre Freddy Krueger whose makeup and glove with confuse you more so than frighten you. This movie is one of those where you get it just to laugh at how bad it is rather than take it seriously. If you see this in a store, you're better off passing it and picking something else.

    Decent Remake

    This movie is very different from its original counterpart. The premise is the same as we have Freddy who is still into his kids. Details of the new Freddy are found out as the movie progresses. Cinemetography wise, I feel that this movie is great. The Freddy sequences are really well done. I feel that Jackie Earle Haley voice is very put on. I feel that the original was more believable, though he does have his moments that are reminiscent of the original. The other actors aren't the most believable, and are sometimes a little irritating. The plot, for an updated movie, is good, and does capture your attention. Overall a decent remake.

    I also has all the previous Elm Street movies. But because of adult contents in mostly all the movies, won't be able to watch with my kids. Now finally, this one is not only all in one kind of Elm Street movie with nothing which I can't see with my kids. So if you want to see this movie with your kids, don't worry and watch it with your entire family.

    This is a great film, surpasses the original, by far. jackie earle haley was amazing, creepy, and takes the role with amazing dedication and complete transformation. wish they gave oscars for horror movies, because haley was brilliant.

    Overall, great movie with great casting. Plot works and brutality is very strong here. Main flaw to the movie though is bad pacing and poor editing. Still is very enjoyable with great re-watch value.

    Bought this movie for Halloween night with my kids. I know it's the remake but I thought it was still a good movie. Obviously not a movie for kids but we enjoyed it. Specs are good, special features were ok, overall decent price for bluray version.

    I’m not sure why this movie got all of the hate that it did. I mean, his voice wasn’t that bad, and the movie gave us the answer that we’ve all kind of wondered. I think this was a job well done.
