A BAYmare on Jumpscare Street

This is a pathetic remake of a beloved classic. I do like the Friday The 13th remake and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake but this is weak. The script is the same as the original but a crappy/modernize version, poorly executed story, and block of wood characters (aka emotionless acting). Nancy in this movie is so bland but I think the writing ruined it. THE JUMPSCARES!! Knock it off already they're not scary, they're ANNOYING!!!!!! I use to defend this movie for 5 years since 4th grade and as a freshmen at High School it's poorly directed. Overall bad remake I don't recommend it. Watch the original instead.

Why? Just... why?

I don't get it. How did the kids fall asleep while doing important things like swimming or walking? At a funeral? Why would Freddy all of a sudden be a killer when he was simply a child molester before? If he was coming back to haunt them and didn't kill anyone before, why would he kill anyone now? Wouldn't he just feel them up a bit? And how did the parents make the kids forget everything? Yet, almost all of them live in the exact same neighborhood where they grew up?

All of these horrible plot holes and convenient tactics just scream lazy writing. Don't they workshop this stuff before they submit it for finals? They broke their own rules repeatedly with the whole hallucination/micro sleep stuff they did, by taking stuff out of the dreams, and on top of that, the kids did weird things that normal kids probably would or wouldn't do. For example, the kids knew the parents knew about Freddy eventually, but why did none of them mention the said dreams they were having?

Poorly written characters and dialogue on top of this crap sundae; where the teenagers would solo it out instead of staying together to keep each other awake, and a lack of empathy towards the victims, as they were mostly boring cannon fodder for Freddy's claws. None of the characters interacted all that much, and they didn't seem to care all that much when the others died.

Also, the cliche usage of jump scares, the wooden acting, the boring protagonist and antagonist, and the complete copycat massacre scenes of the first film. I guess it's hard to be original in Hollywood.

I'm the minority

Tell me something. What was so great about the originals? Is it the acting? No. The acting is terrible. The effects? Maybe. I'm sure they were awesome for their time. Robert Englund? Again, maybe. He really seemed to be into his part. Johnny Depp? ...No. The fact that Freddy kills a total of three people? One of which was barely on screen? No. That sucks.

Ok, maybe I'm being a bit harsh. The effects even today aren't that bad. And the two kills that weren't painstakingly slow and boring were actually pretty awesome. And Johnny Depp's death was iconic. But I was never a fan of the original movies. The acting always made me cringe, the sound effects were goofy, and Freddy was always... well... goofy. I get that he likes to play with his victims, but he's supposed to be scary. Terrifying. But most of the time, I just cringed or laughed when I saw him.

This movie, on the other hand, takes all of that out and remakes the original movie with some better characters and a better Freddy. Granted, I know Robert is iconic as Freddy and me saying anyone else is better than him is probably blasphemy to the name of horror as a whole, but I don't care. The only Robert Englund Freddy I liked was in Freddy vs Jason. And even then, he was STILL really goofy and weird. I like Jackie Earle Haley better as Freddy. He was more terrifying, more clever, and was able to have fun and laugh without being over the top or goofy. It even remade some of the iconic scenes while introducing new ones. Like the Nancy in the tub with Freddy's hand scene, Kris' death, the body bag scene, Freddy in the walls, and Nancy's mom getting attacked at the end... Ok, so they weren't very original in that regard. But what do you expect from a remake? They probably just wanted to trigger fans' nostalgia. ...That... words. Anyway, they do some new stuff, too. Like the way they get rid of him. ...For a day or so. In the original, Nancy reads a book on traps, sets them up around the house, then goes to sleep. All in the span of, what an HOUR?? That's not even possible. And on top of that, when Freddy's finally out and ready to kill her, she beats him with what? Willpower. She does NOTHING but say that he can't hurt her. And he just vanishes. BORING. The remake has them go to the school. It's this whole thing about Freddy being accused by the kids of hurting them and taking them to his basement, then he gets killed by the parents, kills some of the kids years later after they've forgotten about the whole thing and leading Nancy and Quentin to the pre-school all of this took place in so they can remember, only for them to realize they were telling the truth about it and going to drag him out of their dreams and fight him two on one with a broken paper slicer... thing. And you know what? It's WAY more interesting and believable than anything in the original.
