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.

Goofs

(at around 55 mins) During swimming practice, Quentin is shown hanging off the dive platform at the end of his lane, listening to the coach talk. 3 or 4 drops of water rise out of the pool and fly up to his elbow, revealing that this particular scene is being played in reverse. (Also you can just make out from the top right of the screen that the coach is actually walking backwards, as shown by the string coming from his right pocket which you can see in the next camera angle) See more »

Sucked!
30 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Very dissatisfied , I own the box set , I love nightmare on elm St along with all horror movies..... I wasn't expecting much out of this movie and that's exactly what I got, other than the opening scene this movie offered nothing!People giving this movie a positive review have no perspective or creativity. I felt like one of the cast of in this movie.... Fighting to stay awake.I don't really write too many reviews but I couldn't stay away from this one. It's frustrating to watch them ruin these classic movies, I'm always open to watch them just because I love the genre of horror but my god. The CGI was way overused and Freddy looked like a burnt vampire/alien? I didn't think the acting was bad at all, I just think the script itself wasn't very good, definitely could've taken this movie in all kinds of crazy directions but instead just made it bland, it seemed like it was 3 hours long, Save your money!
