A Nightmare on Elm Street – the Remake (2010)

23 Sep

Everyone probably knows about Freddy Kruger, the man who might kill you in your dreams. The remake of the famous “A Nightmare on Elm Street” hit the big screens in 2010. Is it worth watching?

Despite having some decent actors in it (namely Kyle Gallner and Rooney Mara) this film was a disappointment to me. Maybe I’m just too used to the typical horror formula, but it did not scare me a lot. It also lackes good pacing. Another problem, and that one is pretty common in horror films, was the impossibility to develop some bond with the characters before they were killed. This was especially the case with Katie Cassidy’s and Thomas Dekker’s characters. All in all, it was only an okay-ish film.
