Movie Reviews

  • Welcome to 2010, Freddy Krueger. You were scarier in 1984
    2 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • Too many more remakes as dull and bland as A Nightmare on Elm Street could kill off horror movies for good
    2 of 4 by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald ]
  • the story's a bit slavishly faithful, but overall, it's a worthy Freddy follow-up
    Review rate : B+ by Luke Y. Thompson [E! Online ]
  • the new Nightmare on Elm Street is a by-the-numbers bad dream that plays a little too much like a corporately ordered rerun
    Review rate : B- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • New technology is a good excuse for remaking films these days but surprisingly this Nightmare really isn't even as technically effective as Wes Craven's 26 year old original
    2 of 5 by Pete Hammond [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • like any number of scary television series
    2 of 4 by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail ]
  • It's not terrible. It's just . . . superfluous
    2 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • It's moderately entertaining and instantly forgettable
    by A.O. Scott [NY Times ]
  • It's a movie that starts slowly, and only starts moving us to the edge of our seat in the third act, adequate for a horror picture, but no more
    2 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • In the end, your last fever dream about failing to study for an exam was probably scarier
    by Robert Abele [LA Times ]
  • In fact it's gotten worse
    Review rate : D by Gary Thompson [Philadelphia Daily News ]
  • If all you're looking for are cheap scares, you'll find a few minor jolts and a decent - though not interesting or unusual - amount of gore
    1 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • almost completely redundant
    2.5 of 4 by Jeff Shannon [Seattle Times ]
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street is somnambulant enough without having to watch characters yawn and rub their eyes while trying to not doze
    Review rate : C- by Steve Persall [St. Petersburg Times ]
  • "A Nightmare on Elm Street" looks good recycling "greatest hits" moments but fails to capture the excitement of the original
    1.5 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • "A Nightmare on Elm Street" isn't a nightmare so much as it is a series of missed opportunities
    2 of 4 by Jeff Vice [Deseret News ]
