Storyline

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 Film_Fan

User Reviews

Not totally bad, but not satisfying either
27 October 2002 | by SuperunknovvnSee all my reviews

"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!
