As far as remakes go, this is not one of my faves. There are 2 different types of remakes. Some have the same story as the original and then there are those that are a reimagining. I'd say that this falls on the latter. The best remakes that stick out in my mind are Dawn of the Dead, The Hills Have Eyes & Piranha.
But that doesn't mean that is a failure. The cast is alright and there are a few good scenes but this is the first Nightmare that explores what a lack of sleep does to a person instead of just having everyone falling asleep all of a sudden. At least it's better than the Friday the 13th remake. I'll keep this one in my collection.

This is one of the worst remakes I've seen in awhile. Jackie Earle Haley does a decent job as Freddy, but the rest of the cast is hideous. This film is boring and doesn't have a single actual scre throughout it. It's another pointless remake that fails.

I adore the orginal and i think there are parts to this remake that make this incredible but overall i think that it could have been done better with more dream sequences. We see so many sequences of the kids and the point of the movie is for freddy. I adore freddy so maybe im just bias.

I know a lot of people didn't like this film and thought only Robert Englund could pull it off, but I have to disagree. Freddy Krueger is supposed to be a sick and twisted man who preys on innocent children. Robert Englund's Freddy was too campy and humorous. Jackie Earle Haley's Freddy was way more terrifying and convincing as a creeper. I found this movie to be better than the original and I enjoyed the fact that Freddy was protrayed more realistically in the remake. Very good film, although some of the actors weren't the best. This is something I could definitely watch again and again.

Strongly disappointed
Freddy Girl | 10/19/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I grew up watching the Freddy movies and was somewhat skeptical about a remake of Nightmare on Elm Street without Robert Englund. My intuition was completely correct. Upon seeing Freddy for the first time in the new film, from there on out, it was laughable. The new Freddy 1.) looked completely out of character. One of Robert Englund's trademarks for Freddy was the long nose. The new Freddy, didn't have one. 2.) The new Freddy said things that Freddy never said or wouldn't ever say in my opinion. 3.) The voice...oh my, the voice. Horrid. 4.) The size and height for Freddy was off.

Now I know these are things most people wouldn't pay attention to, but being a die hard Freddy girl, it was unacceptable to me to do damage to the character like that.

Now, I will say the plot of the film was pretty good. It didn't save the movie for me, though. Like I said, once I saw and heard Freddy, it was over for me. I don't consider this to be a part of the original franchise. They should keep the new one in the comedy section. If you like Freddy, stick to the old-school originals."
A Moderate Horror Film!

"Jackie Earle Haley made a good impression of Freddy Kreuger, but he does not present the classic wise-cracking Freddy everyone loves and fears. Also, instead of being a completely new film with a new plot, it turned out to steal scenes from some of the other Nightmare on Elm Street films like Freddy coming out of the wall above the main character and Freddy's hand creeping out of the bath tub. Once again, Michael Bay has disappointed me! Still, this was a film that kept you wondering where Freddy will appear and slash his victim. The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell"
