A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010

Released - 2010
Genre - Horror, Fantasy
Director - Samuel Bayer
Starring - Jackie Earle Haley, Kyle Gallner, Rooney Mara, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz

This razor fingered villain of legendary proportions makes an inevitable return to the big screen but is he the Freddy we remember? In a word - no. Since all the big horror franchises are getting the remake treatment it was predictable that Craven's classic slasher A Nightmare on Elm Street would catch someone's eye. When I first heard about it with Michael Bay's name attached I felt sick but then they cast Jackie Earle Haley and I started to believe that it just might be worth seeing. Too much screen time for Freddy, terrible flashbacks, a dull script and lacklustre direction conspire to make a movie watching experience I really didn't expect - total boredom. It wasn't even really bad enough to make me angry it was just disappointing and lifeless. On the plus side Freddy's make up was great.

Bodycount - maybe 5?

Gore - there is a fair bit of gore but the CGI is not great
