Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they're all having the same dream--of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener's glove with knives for fingers. And they're all hearing the same frightening voice... One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up. But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Functioning on little to no sleep, the four surviving friends struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren't telling them. Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all... Freddy Krueger.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Traffics in overly familiar scare tactics, setting up predictable false alarms and telegraphing in advance just when Freddy will pop into the frame and utter one of his labored witticisms.
Rotten: It's the Bay touch you feel in the way actors register as body count, characters go undeveloped, and sensation trumps feeling. A nightmare, indeed.
Rotten: This moody, lifeless movie rips off lines, scenes, dream sequences and character kills from Craven's film ... while draining them of energy, suspense and meaning.
Rotten: People have dreams and either get their guts ripped out or don't get their gets ripped out. And then, after 90 or so minutes are used up, the movie finds some weak pretext for ending.
Everyone's a critic.
The critics don't understand most people watch these types of movies because they are fun to watch. Who cares if the plot are not Oscar Worthy? If you want to see a fun and decent movie, rent this and draw your own conclusion. Don't let the critics fool you. Speak for yourself.
This movie was great. Idk y people say they don't like it. People don't like it because they have a new Freddy and that just because it doesn't have Robert englund it's no good. But Jackie was a good Freddy. But the movie was fun scarier than the past freddys and good actors 2 I recommend this movie 2 all Freddy fans it's a good movie
