Roger Ebert he 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?
Chris Bilton As far as Elm Street is concerned, a Freddy-vs.-Jason sequel is probably the best we can hope for.
Peter Travers Do we really need a remake of Wes Craven's 1984 horror classic that spawned six sequels?
C. Fuchs Fails to do much of anything new or interesting with the original material and thus nearly put yours truly to sleep.
Tomatometer Visually 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.
