Haters gonna hate...
Is this much riddled remake of the original Wes Craven classic as bad as everyone says it is? It was panned by everyone but especially A Nightmare On Elm Street fans upon release but made a healthy profit, so was it really so horrible? No way. Directed by Samuel Bayer, who was behind the camera of many music videos for such artists as Justin Timberlake, Blink 182, Green Day, David Bowie and Metallica... to name a few. He's no slouch and artistically it's very strong but this is his first foray into feature films. Bayer tells a very similar story but with some new ideas thrown in.
