    Did you notice the song Chase was singing in his car just before he fell asleep was by REM? I thought that was a pretty cool little joke, if it was intentional!

    .. and just doesn’t live up to it. I know several people have already basically said what I’m going to say but I just watched this movie for the first time in about two years and I feel the need to vent about it.

    First of all, AMAZING story. So much potential. So original.

    It sucks because you can’t just remake it, they were lucky to get all the people together for the first one (and it still bothers me that Depp would’ve been in New Nightmare but Craven never got up the courage to ask).

    Basically what killed it for me was:

    – The music

    – Rex

    – Freddy (I don’t like his new look. The combat boots and long coat just weren’t doing it for me)

    – The little boy (no offense.. he did okay, but he just made things funny that shouldn’t have been fnny)

    – Certain things were drug out too long (too many pointless earthquake scenes were minor, pointless things would happen)

    – Everything looked so fake and planned. I don’t know how to phrase it.. the camera angles? I don’t know.. but the way the camera would zoom in all dramatic on someones face made me want to laugh.

    – The tongue/snake thing at the end

    – The whole end sequence. When Nancy falls into Freddy’s world and there’s a big Freddy Fountain or whatever.. yeah, that looks horrible. And his whole underground layer thing looks so.. wrong. I was waiting for them to walk into a room down there and it be a boiler room. I know it probably wouldn’t have looked right to see Freddy kill Robert because of the special affects but that would’ve been cool to see.

    The movie would really get good in certain parts, it definitely has its strong points. Unfortunately, they were usually quickly followed by let downs. The final battle scene with Heather and Freddy should’ve been better. Maybe it would’ve been better if Heather didn’t have a kid. He just seemed to weigh her down and make the move laughable. I loved when Wes was talking to Heather about the script and when Heather finally "becomes Nancy" and her father is talking to her. Walking up the gooey stairs was a nice touch as well. It was a cool idea to have the babysitter killed like Nancy’s friend was in the original, but it wasn’t pulled off very well. I think the stalker thing was intriguing. They should’ve had Heather look and see her stalker/freddy outside or something and then look again and he was gone. That would’ve been more scary than the weird looking notes in the mail.

    That’s basically my opinion.

    Both are alternate universe stories that take place outside their franchises! only difference was that Halloween 3 was suppose to be intended to be a new beginning for the series after Michael was destroyed in part 2 as it was suppose to be a big screen series of halloween themed horror stories every year with different villains in each movie sort of like ‘Tales from The Crypt", "Twilight Zone" or even "Creepshow".

    I know it’s supposed to a revamped version of Freddy, but was the trench coat necessary? Is it cold in hell/dream world? I felt as though all he needed was a brown felt hat, a briefcase and some vacuums to sell and he’d have himself a handy door-to-door salesman job. Or as a knife salesman…

    Remember how Dylan used to put Rex at the bottom of his bed and said Freddy would try to come up and Rex would stop him. Then he ended up with clawmarks on him. Theres two ways I took how Rex *defended* him.

    The first (and much more fun way) is that Dylan was dreaming of Freddy and Rex actually came alive in the dream battling Freddy. If filmed nowadays I’m sure there would be a CGI dinosaur somewhere (not that we need much CGI in horror, but it would be cool to see).

    The second is that Freddy simply showed up under the sheets in a dream and slashed the toy dinosaur out of the way.

    I like the first idea better since it’s a bit more creative and fun, though the second is more logical (just realized I used the word logic on a Nightmare message board). Did anyone else have any other takes on how the slashes happened to Rex. I mean obviously it was Freddy, but are there any other ways you guys/girls thought it might have happened?

    Wes can take his artsy fartsy Freddy and shove’em

    They shouldn’t have ended at Freddy’s Dead

    90’S Freddy would have been awesome

    instead all we got in the 90’s was this piece of artsy fartsy liberal trash

    Is this one Even counted in the movie story line? And from the sound of the plot outline, it sounds like Freddy isn’t the villain, something pretending to be Freddy. I mean thats sorta like Friday the 13th part 5…

    I’ve already seen the first 4 and I’ve seen FVJ the only ones I haven’t seen is this one, Dream Child, and Freddy’s Dead. is this worth viewing along with the other 2 I havent seen? I loved the first one, 2 was good, 3 was alright, 4 sucked.

    … disappointment. IMO

    It started off with a great concept a decent storyline but it was all poorly executed. The direction isn’t bad (though it does start to plod along by the halfway mark) but what was Craven thinking regarding the plot?!

    The first few times we’re introduced to the kid being tormented by Freddy, it’s great – I was expecting this to lead to something bigger. But then we’re forced to sit through various scenarios where the kid is chased by Freddy or Heather chases/looks for her son.

    I was psyched to finally see this recently. I loved the concept (especially given the dream themes in previous films) but I was really bored after the first hour.

    Also, there are plot holes galore towards the end and Freddy looked terrible. His "makeup" consisted of what looked like a latex mask and a new glove. The latter is pretty cool but what’s up with the exposed rubber flesh? Too clean and not nearly as revolting as the original Freddy’s face.

    I think the original is, well, original.. and it is one of the iconic movies in horror. However I think we can all agree that part 2 started to see Freddy become slightly more ‘comedy’ and by 3-6 he was just a parody.. In fact I’d go as far as to say that Freddy 2-6 we actually wanted Freddy to WIN in the movies, so lame were the ‘good guys’.

    When I saw Wes Craven was back at the helm for a new one, I thought well that’s good but what else can they do with this? It’s still gonna look like all the others, just a bunch of teens getting picked off, right??

    WRONG!

    Totally original. Probably the most original horror movie I have ever seen in my life, and the fact that 99% of the audience (including me) dismissed the possibility this movie could be good in any way even before we saw it, simply because it was common knowledge that Freddy sucked after part 1, just stands to make it even more of an accomplishment.

    Freddy is genuinely a freak again, he’s genuinely a scary mother *beep* and not a cartoon and he’s somebody you wouldn’t want to ever meet – unlike the earlier sequels where everyone would love to meet the guy and bellow ‘freddy duuuuude’ whilst high fiving him.

    This is Wes Craven’s masterpiece, I consider it more of an achievement than the original given the fact that it was expected to suck. In this film he goes back to being the murdering paedophile we saw in part one, and the concept is something completely fresh with the almost documentary approach.

    LOVED THIS MOVIE!

    I recetly got through watching all the films in the series. Some were much worse than I recall and some actualy were better.

    This always has been one of my faves, very clever.

    However I always felt there was too much "Freddy" in this.

    The subtlety of this all being in Heather’s mind was a much more interesting factor for me. After just sitting through the film again (every time I watch it I see something new). I felt that should have only hinted at "Freddy" and ran with the idea of this all being some sort of story cooked up by Heather.

    The film could have taken a much more phycological slant if they had run with this idea.

    The chat Heather has with John (Saxon) in the playground was where they should have set the tone for the rest of the flick. Heather pointing out phycological problems have been in her family in the past. The fact her stalker was pushing her beyond what she could handle, etc.

    This for me added more depth to the plot.

    Obviously this idea would have had to do away with the fact the film we see is the film Wes was writing.

    I was actualy disapointed when "Freddy" crossed over into the "real world". It made the film a little shallow and the ending more than a slightly contrived.

    The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he is God.

    I bought the box set years ago and never watched the movies all the way through until Halloween weekend up until now.

    It’s not like I have thought hard about this BUT after watching Nightmare 1-7, these are my top 3:

    1) Nightmare on Elm Street 1 – Wes Craven’s original idea was tense and frightening and I love the character of Nancy- she’s a normal teenage girl who is strong and courageous yet vulnerable without being obnoxious. Maybe that’s a credit to Heather Langankamp.

    2) Nightmare on Elm Street 4- The Dream Master – Out of all your typical Freddy franchise films- this was the most entertaining. I liked the character of Alice- someone who was somewhat of a wallflower and finally found her strength in the end. My second favorite character in the series after Nancy. I also really enjoy Tuesday Knight’s opening song and the closing credits songs at the end of the movie. Just very entertaining all in all.

    3) Wes Craven’s New Nightmare- I can’t say I completely understand this right now- I will have to think on it more. But it was definitely creative and innovative and Wes came back to bring new dimension to his creation to make Freddy more scary. I think it’s worth another look.

    The other characters and actors/actresses are forgettable with the exception of Patricia Arquette’s Kristen in part 3.

    I was resistant to the remake of a Nightmare on Elm Street but I think if they take the series in a new direction like they did with the Batman movies, I would be interested in watching them.

    I love this flick, it’s clever, it’s scary and it has a lot of depth and sub-text.

    I have seen it many times.

    However that line Heather says to Bob Shaye when he says Wes is working on a new film.

    "I thought you killed Freddy off?"

    Errrr, Heather…they killed NANCY off.

    Freddy is this mythical, undead enitiy. He can always come back.

    How the hell would they have brought Nancy back, wouldn’t this be a bigger concern?

    I hated the final confrontation. I mean, Heather and Dylan kicked Freddy’s ass in the dream world too easlily! The whole movie he was this powerful and scary villain, and in the end he doesn’t have a chance. Come on, he is in the dream world, he is powerful and invincible there! They stabb him with a kitchen knife, and he really gets hurt! They burn him, and he is dead for good! In previous movies he cuts himself, gets mutilated and it’s ok, because he is the Master of Dreams. But in here is like he is in the real world, and is made of flesh and bone. And I know that, he isn’t exaclty Freddy, but he an entity that is copying Freddy, so he should have all his powers.

    Freddy Krueger without Robert Englund is like a unicorn without a horn.

    First of all, this film is smart with a very original idea that was completely refreshing to the franchise personally me I think all the sequels had at least a few things good about them, sure there corny and predictable at moments but the fans that love horror movies and the cheesy dialogue and over the top 80s music will forever and always love FREDDY, and all the other gore fest films of the 80s, So if you like to set around and point out all that’s wrong in these films then your not a hardcore horror fan and maybe you should go watch Casper the friendly ghost. FREDDY!, FREDDY!, FREDDY!

    From what I understood.

    The entity is able to escape because there are no more movies about freddy being made. So in order to contain it, they must make another nightmare movie and heather must play nancy once more. But won’t the entity try to break free again once the new nightmare movie is over? The way I see it the only way to contain it would be to continue to make freddy movies forever.

    i was just looking through heather’s husband’s imdb page and seen where heather had two kids. one that was born in 91 and the other in 94. the one that was born in 94 was born in the month of December. this movie was released in October.

    pregnancy usually takes 9 months. when she was filming this movie, she had to be pregnant.

    Who would win? Just got the idea because I opened the Neca’s Demon Freddy and McFarlane’s Uber-Jason 7 inch action figures. I had the Uber-Jason figure opened for awhile now and because it looked like it was lonesome so I decided to open the Demon Freddy figure where them two are now facing off and to me looks like a interesting battle to see. I’d have to go with Uber-Jason on this one.
