What is there to be said about Nightmare that hasn't been said yet? For people fresh to the fold, it's a decent enough movie, with its scary moments and plenty of teen blood on the walls to entertain well enough. For returning members of Freddy's long-running series of nightmares, it's atrocious. Without Englund, Freddy feels awkward and poorly imitated by the man who gave us Rorshak from

It wasn't extremely bad, I think it was watchable. But there was nothing different about this movie.

Good ol' Fred loses any sense of playful shock he once possessed and turns into a generic figure meticulously manufactured to simultaneously gross and freak us out. It doesn't work. Full Review

It's moderately entertaining and instantly forgettable. Poor Freddy. I can't help thinking he deserves better. Full Review

Call it what you want, but the best word to describe it is: unnecessary. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
While the 1984 film has aged, its now-familiar jolts still pack more punch than this pic's recycled ones, which sometimes register so tepidly as to cause snickers. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The energy is missing in the remake because the techniques, which are replicated in a straightforward fashion, are stale. Full Review
