A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010) Movie Review

Thanks to Century Fox & for the movie tickets! Went for a movie premiere screening by Advertlets 2 days ago @ Mid Valley with the bloggers to catch "A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)". Freedy Kreuger the main cast appeared which I didn't get to see him cause I was busy dealing with bloggers at the ticket collection booth. But you'll see his photo in my previous post. HERE lol. Anyway, here's what I have to say for this movie.

Personally, I love horror/slasher/thriller movies thus im pretty exited to watch this movie at first. Elderly people told me, Nightmare On Elm Street is actually a very old movie and they remake another new one this year. Oh well, I didn't know about the old ones if im not mistaken it was year (1984) which the movie was release. Which I haven't even exited in this earth yet. lol

PLOT of the movie. *spoiler
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. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairytale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they 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.

Yes, do not fall asleep, Freddy Kreugar will hunt you down.

Never fall asleep in class and you will be resulting yourself in....

HERE. Freddy Kreuger's world !

Freddy Kreugar with his blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality. His metal blades damn power. can produce sparks one. also damn sharp by the sound of his blades. lol

Whenever you sleeps, he'll hunt for you. This girl is smart. She set alarm on her phone. lol

By burning herself on her arm with car ciggies lighter ain't gonna make her awake. Got slashed by Freddy still in da supermarket while Quentin was buying his pill which would subject him to insomnia. A quick look on their eye bags. Very serious never slept for 3 days those kinda people. Can DIE !

Being hunt by the 5 youth parents when they were young. Chase him into a abandon building, lock himself up and no where else to go. And the parents burned him up with fire and resulting him as how does he look like now. with the burned face and all. and the story continues.

By the way, LOL I like this one. It actually rhymes.

One, two, Freddy Come to you.
Three, four, better lock your door.
Five, six, grab your crucifix.
Seven, eight, gonna stay up late.
Nine, ten, never sleep again.

About the movie Review. *spoiler
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) is the remake of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and is a fantastic one at that. Put aside all your previous biases on remakes and take a good look at this movie. The Nightmare on Elm Street remake (2010) actually managed to be a lil scary at times instead of just plain silly (laughing because it's not scary at all). I can't really compare the old and the new but just by giving opinions on the new one (2010)

The movie manages to be generally creepy. Scary at times but not all. Movie focused too much on the side character rather than the main character on the first half of the movie. Quentin and Nancy only appeared after those 3 friends died. Freddy Krueger the main character, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers. Yes his dialog in the movie was quite boring, limited, flat. All I heard from him in the movie is just that few repeated sentence. Overall the story line was okay for me but the scrip in the movie need a lil bit of improvement.

I have a thought in my mind of how are they gonna bring Freddy back to reality where Quentin and Nancy can kill him and stop hunting them forever. and that is a really good idea where they manage to figure out an idea where Nancy decides the only way to end this is to pull Krueger out of their dreams and kill him in reality. Quentin tries to stay awake long enough to pull Nancy out of her dream when she has Freddy, but he falls asleep and is attacked. Krueger then goes after Nancy, and explains that he intentionally left her for last so she would stay awake long enough that when she finally fell asleep, she would no longer be able to wake back up. While Nancy struggles with Freddy, Quentin wakes and uses the adrenaline and stab right into her cleavage to bring Nancy up and pull Freddy into reality. (my reation towards that reminds me of L4D2 and it was damn pain by looking at him stabbing her with that) With Krueger distracted by Quentin, Nancy uses a broken paper cutter blade to cut Freddy's gloved hand off, and then slice his throat. Woots he died! While Nancy burned the room with Krueger's body left inside.

I liked the last part of the movie though. Where Krueger suddenly appears in a mirror's reflection and kills Nancy's mother before pulling her body through the mirror while Nancy screams. The best way to end the movie.

Overall this film is worth seeing but not worth paying. I rate 6/10. Not that bad as the reviews from other people from da web. 1/10 OR 2/10. OMG that's ridiculous. Show some mercy will ya.
