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.
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.

Robert Englund, the actor who portrayed Freddy Kruger in all previous films in the "Nightmare" series, gave a general approval of the remake, as he felt the story could be better told in 2010 with the use of CGI and other special effects that were not available in 1984. See more »

This movie was awful. The script was weak. It was a sad knock off of the original Nightmare with less special effects. I see why Robert Englund wasn't in this movie. It wasn't worth it. I'm sooooo disappointed. I yawned more than anything and I wasn't scared not once. I really wanted this to be a good remake, but it wasn't. The special effects were 1980s at best. The acting was pretty good, but the script lacked originality and depth. The twist was stupid. I felt like I was watching the original Freddy only unscary, unfunny, and uninteresting. I expected a much better production with today's technology. It was like eating spam when you think you'll have steak. It was taking a cruise and never leaving the port. It was a let down. This movie is awful.
