Storyline Heading
A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another…but when they sleep, there is no escape.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror - This is a remake of the wildly popular '80s horror series of the same name, aimed at older teens and young adults. Those used to the wisecracking humor of killer Freddy Krueger as seen in the sequels may be surprised by how dark and serious the character and this film is, as it is more close in tone to the original 1984 film than the lighter sequels. Twilight fans may be disappointed by Kellan Lutz's limited screen time. The film is much too violent and intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average A Nightmare on Elm Street makes the remake authors of the late-'70s/'80s horror staples a perfect zero-for-three.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor I stared at "A Nightmare on Elm Street" with weary resignation.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they're all having the same dream—of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. And they're all hearing the same frightening voice…

One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.

But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairytale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren't telling them.

Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all… Freddy Krueger.
