A Nightmare on Elm Street – 2010

Rating: 2/5

Premise:

From IMDB:
The spectre of a dead child rapist haunts the children of the parents who murdered him, stalking and killing them in their dreams.

Review:

Well, first of all, IMDB’s blurb is quite a spoiler.

Regarding the movie, it was nothing that special. I never watched the original version, so I cannot compare, but for a long time it just felt like people were dying left and right and no one seemed to care or even be serious about what was happening, even potential victims who knew they were such.

The CGI were ok and I particularly loved the opening credits. The images along with the soundtrack made an eerie beginning to the film, as well as the opening scene. From then on, sadly, it went downhill for me.

I could not care for the characters – even Krueger was sort of boring – and the violence was simply gratuitous, so it was just an ok movie to me.
