This film is right in the middle of the elm street films in my opinion in terms of quality. It is not incredible like the first,third, or even New Nightmare, but not horrible like the 6th one. What makes it fit in the middle is its mixed features that accompany it. On the good side the film has incredible effects that I believe are just as good as anything CGI could create. It also is rather dark in its themes and setting giving it a real horror movie feel at certain times. However though these pros are nullified half of the time as many of the deaths and lines are silly. I won't say what they are to save the suspense but you will see what i mean when you get to the third kill. Also Freddy himself is more silly. He went from being dark and creepy, to almost a dark stand up. To make matters more awkward the film is actually quite dark and gruesome, so hearing comedic one liners from freddy while someone is getting torn to shreds is very odd and uncomfortable at least(If you want comedy I recommend Jeff Dunham, not Freddy). This oddness does not occur all of the time, but it will be present if you decide to watch this film. Now the one thing I know all people love in horror now is the jump scare, when the monster pops out of no where after a moment of silence. In this film I can happily say that there are less than 6 jump-scares in total(that is not the total but I don't want to ruin any scares). This is a good thing and what is cool is that the film's settings are often good enough at times where the suspense alone is enough(even though a couple more scares could be good). This helps the film stay scary without making it unwatchable. The only time the film is hard to watch is one of the death scenes that is pretty gory. But other than that it is good.However though, there are times where the film is not even remotely scary or creepy, which seems to make parts of the film miss the point of the horror genre itself. So do I believe you should buy it? Well in the end that is up to you but I think it is good to at least rent it. As I just said at times it is not scary most of the time so don't expect to get nightmares or run out of your seat. But, the film is still entertaining and interesting about 60% of the time. So give it a try before you buy it for 10 dollars because I know there are some who will expect something like 1 or 3 and cry for there money back. Oh and if you have not seen 1,3,4,New Nightmare, or maybe even 2 don't watch this movie yet. Not because they are vital to this film(4 kind of is) but because they are better films.

He just became a goof after the 3rd movie, now he's just funny, which isn't scary

Why is it that itunes has the first and 3-final movie but not the 2nd? Really, itunes, put them all on. Some people like to have the full series on hand.

This is really cheesy, the effects are terrible, the plot is poor, and if I could, I would rate it with no stars.

the best part of the movie was when Johnny Depp appeared! :). even though it was only for a couple of seconds...

I think this is the most dark and disturbing of the noes series. Hopkins did a great job directing and the actors were awesome. Very atmospheric setting.

The movie was a little weak in the plot, but the effects were good.

This is without a doubt the worst nightmare film. This is an insult to the nightmare on elm street franchise and movies in general. This movie sucked so bad that even the remake was better. The only good parts were the beginning and the part where the guy is a superhero in a comic book

R.B AS F.K ROCKS!! 2010-04-08
They need to add 4 because 1,3,4,&5 are the best out of allll of them! 2 has no place, Freddy's dead sucked, & West Craven's sucked 2. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREEET IS THE BEST HORROR SERIES EVER AND NOTHING CAN BEAT IT!!!!!

This is one of the best in the series. They should add the other 5 films.

TN&BSU 4 Life 2010-03-12
The only reason I have this movie is because of the box set. I don't have a clue what they were thinking. Maybe they tried too hard, rushed it, or both. They definetly need to add the rest of the series on here for the other members. Parts 1, 3, & 4 are the best.

Zack4444345624356 2010-02-26
Now please add the rest of the series

Rich3296 2009-12-29
Not the best, but still classic Freddy!! iTunes & New Line Cinemas need to add the others... Well, except 2 - it has no place in the series in any way.

WLWesleyJr 2009-11-22
