A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Five teenage friends living on one street all dream of a sinister man with a disfigured face, a frightening voice and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. One by one, he terrorizes them within their dreams—where the rules are his and the only way out is to wake up. But when one among them dies, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due. To save themselves, they must plunge into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all: Freddy Krueger. Jackie Earle Haley plays the legendary evildoer in this contemporary reimagining of the seminal horror classic.
I thought the horror movie remake of Nightmare on Elm Street was okay but Jackie Earle Haley just did play the role as Robert Englund played Freddy Krueger. The entire scripts were different and the plot was changed a bit to make Freddy less of funny but that is what I enjoyed about him. Anyway, the film is decent and the actors did a good job playing their characters but the new re-imaging of Freddy really threw me off.
Synopsis:A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.
