User Review

Makes up for the bad sequels

Rating: 9/10


The First Nightmare on Elm Street was scary and original. It had the
great idea of a killer killing people in their dreams. All of its
sequels (except for part 2, which went in a horrible direction) just
built on to that idea, and the idea wasn't scary anymore as the series
progressed. Now with New Nightmare, Wes Craven came up with another
original idea. It turns out that Freddy is in fact real, some kind of
ancient evil that took the form of Freddy Krueger and could only be
contained through storytelling, IE: the Nightmare On Elm Street movies.
But since the series has ended, the genie is out of the bottle, and
this ingenious film unravels.

I wouldn't say this movie is that scary, it's more creepy than it is
scary, but I love its imagination. It plays mind little mind games and
you wonder what is real and what is not. Freddy Krueger is even
credited as "himself". It's a must-see for any Freddy fan and in many
ways it stands on its own…but only if you've seen the other movies.
If that makes any sense.

This is one of the best sequels in the Nightmare series and it's
nothing short of brilliant. It's nice to see that Freddy is back in the
bottle where he belongs, and hopefully will be for a long time…

My Rating: 9/10
