Kevin J. O'Connor,
It's nearing the 10th Anniversary of the film 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' and one of the stars, Heather Langenkamp is being scared by a voice on a phone, sounding very similar to the film's villain, Freddy Krueger. When Heather's husband is killed in a car accident and is discovered with slash marks on him, Heather starts to wonder something. Especially when she discovers that Wes Craven is writing another 'Nightmare' film. Soon, she realizes that Freddy has now entered the real world, and the only way to defeat him is to become Nancy Thompson once again. Written by
The film has no opening titles to blur the illusion of whether it's a film, a documentary or something else altogether. See more »
Right after the second aftershock when Heather Langenkamp sees the three cracks appear in the wall she runs down the stairs and is wearing only black nylons on her feet. When she bends over to hug Dylan she is seen wearing powder blue slippers; then in the next shot after she comes back from calling Jason at the door, the slippers are gone again. See more »
Near the end of the credits reads: "Some parts of this motion picture were inspired by actual events. Others may be attributed to the overactive imagination of a five-year-old boy" ... "The names of certain of the characters portrayed have been changed to protect the innocent. Certain incidents portrayed have been dramatized. With the exclusion of those courageous individuals who portrayed themselves, any similarity to the name, character or history of any person, living or dead, is entirely coincidnetal and unintentional."

"New Nightmare" tries so hard to be original but fails in the end. There's not enough suspense, not enough gore and the ending is ridiculous. Of course, this one is better than parts 2,4,5 and 6 but still it's not great. Good news is Freddy is not so funny anymore (though I never had a problem with him being an evil joker), bad news is the new look including the new glove sucks. It's somehow too hi-tech! If you are a fan of the series watch "New Nightmare", if you're looking for something really scary stop after part one!
