An improvement on the original, but still pretty bad.
even funnier than the original! if you love bad movies, you can't go wrong with this character!
i thought it was amazing! and scary
Freddy Krueger Was My Fave Character!
i prefer the original. JACKIE EARLE HALEY is not a good Freddy at all. He is to small, was'nt scary, some of the things he said was so out of place, his voice sounded forced. The original Freddy (Robert) was funny & scary at the same time & he looked the part, played it perfectly
pretty good! Freddy Krueger's back and better than ever!
This movie was decent. the storyline was good, and the acting was good. The problem that I had with it though, was the fact that Freddy did not even look like the original Freddy. The looks of him were so dissapointing that I had to give a lower rating because I was not happy with this. If you are a Nightmare on Elm Street fan, and a big fan of Freddy like I am, then you'll have to get over the fact that Freddy looks nothing like the original freddy :(
Not as good as the original. Too much emphasis on creating backstory and explanations, at the expense of the actual horror. Some talented actors are wasted in this film, although Jackie Earl Haley does bring a new take on the iconic Freddy.
I was 10 when i saw the original and for sure it scared the hell out of me. Still one of my faves today. But this remake is very good and they couldn't have done much else with it to make it any better. Perhaps all the morons who gave this movie one star should have at least a clue (or an i.q point) about horror movies before being allowed to vote on a public website! It's like what the hell would they expect when seeing a horror remake?! A frame by frame remake of the original like they did with Psycho?!
I loved this movie. I saw it at Midnight on thursday (natch), and then I went right back to see it the next day. It's great. i think that they did everything right. You can tell that it's made by horror nerds that really love the original series, and I know that because I'M a horror nerd that loves ANOES. I was originally really lukewarm about the fact that they were remaking this movie rather than making a sequal, and when I learned they were recasting Robert Englund, I was almost outraged. When I heard that they had gotten Jackie Earl Halye though, it put my mind at ease. If anyone could be a worth replacement, it would be him. He did not disappoint in the least.
They revamped the stor
