Did all you guys who say you loved it see the original first or not? Just curious as I thought this was a horrible bastardization of a true horror classic. I admit I did like the back story a little but why did the one kid see that? Why did Freddy show him that as opposed to trying to kill him? Didn't make sense. I also didn't care for the way Freddy looked nor acted. Robert Englund had such an evil campy charm to him that can't be beat! (I met him in person if full makeup and even during the day was creepy as hell!) But I digress...some of the dream sequences were good but again, this new one lacked. Where was the gushing blood from the bed? The kind in jail getting strangled was much more effective in the original and so forth. Even Nancy was so week as a character at least in the original she got some balls and kicked a bit of ass. Oh, well, I'm rambling, sorry. Oh, the very end was pretty good though. heh heh.
To each his own but I'm glad I didn't waste my money.
