A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Teenagers in a small town are dropping like flies, apparently in the grip of mass hysteria causing their suicides.

Krueger has now come back in the dreams of his killers\' children, claiming their lives as his revenge. Nancy and her boyfriend, Glen (Johnny Depp), must devise a plan to lure the monster out of the realm of nightmares and into the real world...

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) Movie Reviewson rottentomatoes

"The result of the new Nightmare is, at best, a kind of stand-off between predictability and competent execution."Liam Lacey
"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."A.O. Scott
"All we can think of is how much we miss the Robert Englund Freddy. Man, that guy knew how to have a killer good time."Jen Chaney
"The new Nightmare is a straight, shiny, honorable remake."Richard Corliss
"There are a lot of things wrong with this remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, not least of which is that it was made at all."Peter Howell
"The remake has dumbed-down its source to a genre it always transcended: the slice-and-dice, snip-and-quip gore film."Stephen Whitty
"Welcome to 2010, Freddy Krueger. You were scarier in 1984."James Berardinelli
"Like a cover band with more stagecraft than talent, A Nightmare on Elm Street looks good recycling "greatest hits" moments but fails to capture the excitement of the original."Colin Covert
