Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconhe movie consists of a series of teenagers who are introduced, haunted by nightmares and then slashed to death by Freddy. So what? Are we supposed to be scared?

eye Weekly
Chris Bilton quote iconAs far as Elm Street is concerned, a Freddy-vs.-Jason sequel is probably the best we can hope for.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconDo we really need a remake of Wes Craven's 1984 horror classic that spawned six sequels?
8
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconFails to do much of anything new or interesting with the original material and thus nearly put yours truly to sleep.

Tomatometer quote iconVisually faithful but lacking the depth and subversive twists that made the original so memorable, the Nightmare on Elm Street remake lives up to its title in the worst possible way.
