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.Written by
At 5'6", Jackie Earle Haley was shorter than all of the young adult actors in the film with the exception of Rooney Mara. Various techniques were used to make him appear taller. See more »
(at around 18 mins) When Nancy and Quentin are talking in the school, between shots Quentin's jumper moves so that 'Joy Division' is fully visible on his T-shirt, however when the camera moves back to the position it was before, the jumper has moved back, so that you can only see 'Y Divis'.

The movie's title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 10 minutes into the movie. See more »
Definitely doesn't touch the magic of the original despite a great performance and look to the new Freddy he definitely looks dark and scary and the voice is great too a different direction but prefer Robert Englunds Freddy. I thought the lead characters who survive until later in the movie didn't really do it for me I didn't feel engaged by them. I think Thomas Dekker's character should have had a bigger role to play. Great giving the back story some time but the whole film just doesn't do it for me certainly proves there's no need for a reboot and a reboot will never surpass Wes Craven's original masterpiece . 5/10. Some great scenes definitely worth the watch but overall doesn't hit the spot for me.
