This time staying awake won't save you.. Ten years after writer and director Wes Craven ("Scream," "The Hills Have Eyes") brought his personal nightmares to the movie screen as Freddy Krueger in "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the horrifying child killer returns, stepping out of his celluloid world to haunt the life of the actress who first defeated him on film. This seventh film in the Nightmare on Elm Street series has the cast starring as themselves in a wicked spin as key players from earlier installments are terrorized by Freddy Kreuger and his razor-fingered glove. Starring Robert Englund ("Urban Legend," "The Mangler"), Heather Langenkamp ("TV's Just the Ten of Us"), and Miko Hughes ("Apollo 13," "Mercury Rising").




  • My #1

    Favorite horror movie of all time since I was a kid. Acting is spot on. Plot is spot on. Music, gore, script. Absolute perfection.

    I just watched it and it was pretty corny, i love Wes craven and the original cast. It could have been such a great film but the cgi and acting were pretty bad.
  • Ahead of its time and eerily prophetic

    By RobbieDarko
    Wes Craven brought the series he created to a satisfying close with one of its best entries. New Nightmare is a spiritual “prequel” to Scream (which he made soon after) and brings back the original final girl, Nancy/Heather to face off against Freddy one last time. This movie was “meta” before being meta-textual in horror was cool. It predicted the “legacy” reboot made popular years later by David Gordon Green’s 2018 “Halloween,” and adds new, mythic elements that pay respects to the original Nightmare on Elm Street films to the point of linking them directly to Freddy’s “real world” origins. IMO the best follow-up and perfect ending to the original trilogy. 1, 2, 3, and New Nightmare is the way to binge this classic series.

    Wes Craven's New Nightmare is a classic right out the video store horror film it's a joke to the point were Freddy Kruger is treated like a icon but still this film works as a parody and a horror slasher.
  • Pretty darn good movie.

    I am much more impressed with this now than I was when it first came out. I think that at the moment it may be my favorite movie of the series. Freddy Krueger is much more evil and dark and frightening here. Good storyline, too. Darn good!

  • Not to my liking

    By Lebanese_prince
    Personally I never cared for this particular prequel . But It was really nice to watch the original cast reuniting to make this but the whole thing is just overrated and corny . It was more focused on the little boy then anything which as a viewer didn’t really care about . I wanted to see more Freddy but oh well . honestly Freddy vs Jason was better than this in my opinion .

  • Worst of the series

    By Toad and Ray Cheesey
    They should have stuck with the 6th one being the last. This movie could have been so much better, Next time I feel like wasting $12.99 I think I’ll just flush it down the toilet.
