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.
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 was initially apprehensive about playing Freddy, as he was intimidated by playing a character that he felt was really owned by another actor (Robert Englund). However, the idea of playing Freddy excited him so much that he decided to accept the role. 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.
