Storyline

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.

What For?
14 October 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Freddy Krueger is my number one maniac of horror movies and I have watched the original "A Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise many times in the movie theaters, on VHS and on DVD. Inclusive I have a wonderful memorabilia of this great villain in the shelf where I store my horror movies. Robert Englund became a cult-actor because of his magnificent interpretation of Freddy Krueger, blending humor and cruelty in the right proportions.

This remake of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" does not add any value to the franchise, with a story that does not show anything that has not been seen before, except the awful Freddy Krueger, performed by Jackie Earle Haley. Anyway, the acting is decent and the special effects are great. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Hora do Pesadelo" ("The Hour of the Nightmare")
