Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Death stalks the dreams of several young adults to claim its revenge on the killing of Freddy Kruger. Chased and chastised by this finger-bladed demon, it is the awakening of old memories and the denials of a past of retribution that spurns this hellish vision of a dreamlike state and turns death into a nightmare reality.

Jackie Earle Haley scratched his corneas with the contact lenses he wore delaying production for a short time. He also had the whites of his eyes turn blood red for two weeks because of this. See more »

Very dissatisfied , I own the box set , I love nightmare on elm St along with all horror movies..... I wasn't expecting much out of this movie and that's exactly what I got, other than the opening scene this movie offered nothing!People giving this movie a positive review have no perspective or creativity. I felt like one of the cast of in this movie.... Fighting to stay awake.I don't really write too many reviews but I couldn't stay away from this one. It's frustrating to watch them ruin these classic movies, I'm always open to watch them just because I love the genre of horror but my god. The CGI was way overused and Freddy looked like a burnt vampire/alien? I didn't think the acting was bad at all, I just think the script itself wasn't very good, definitely could've taken this movie in all kinds of crazy directions but instead just made it bland, it seemed like it was 3 hours long, Save your money!
