A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

71qNQM43vSL. SL1500  809x1024 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Freddy’s back in the update of Wes Craven’s classic tales of the hideously disfigured dream-stalker and his prey.

A few big name actresses here, Rooney Mara, Katie Cassidy, and Connie Britton, all of whom are big enough stars that I expected they would survive the movie, but I guess I should have known better, normally the survival rates for a Nightmare flick is 1 or 2, maybe 4 if you’re dream warriors. I’m a big fan of what Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, Human Target) did with the Freddy role, which is comparable to Robert Englund’s first outing. The special effects on his face were downright creepy, unlike the previous film where it was a rubber mask with no gore or horror to it at all.

This was a good Nightmare film, but I’m happy the franchise is inactive, it’s a difficult well to go back to again and again.
