  • Scary dream…

    A Nightmare On Elm Street rating: 6 out of 10(Aakash Barvalia wrote on 07 Jun 2010)

    The tag line of the film says “Never Sleep Again”. If you have watched this film before sleeping at night, you would surely think once on this tag line.

    Many horror films come and go. But very few survive to the box office, and rests turn out to be garbage. But some films, are not good at the box office and also neither they are garbage, but still they are lovely to watch and will enjoy those terrifying hours of the movie. That kind of films would be only being appreciable by those who love to watch any kind of horror or thriller kind of movies. No matter how they are, good or bad. Can be called as die-heart fans of horror or thriller kind of movies.

    Story:
    Story is good, and the screenplay is even better to that. Good twists and turns, and had managed to make an interest till the end of the movie.

    The whole film is about of some young boys and girls, who are friends to each other, but something strange is happening to them. As soon as they sleep, they dream, and as soon as they dream, one burned man face tries to kill them. But this is not only a dream, as soon as they wake up; they noticed that the dream part is actually happening in real. For example, in dream that burned face man cut a scratch in their hand, and when they woke up, that scratch is there on their hand.

    Soon by this, nobody knows what is happening and one by one everybody is getting killed. At the end only two friends have just left, but they are so scared that they have decided not to sleep, as they sleep they dream, and when they dream that burned face man comes and kills them. But in the meanwhile, they also tried to investigate that who is that actually burned face man, and why is he killing only their group of friends. What does he want and why is he doing that?

    My comment:
    Writers have given proper justice to the climax as while watching the movie, everybody in the theatre was guessing what will be the end of this story, and how will those survivors will survive from that dream man. But after watching the climax, it can be perfectly rated in the good category of any horror/thriller kind of movies.

    Direction was good, and would love to see its sequel, which is also coming soon. Though this is not the original, it’s a remake of the classic one, which shares the same title and was released in 1984. That movie was super, and was also a super-duper hit at the box-office during those times. As this film can’t be compared with the classic one, as the original will be the original, but still it’s lovely to watch.

    The CGI and Graphic effects here were awesome, and the person handling this definitely deserves a good appreciation. Performances by all the characters were decent and had done their job well.

    Final verdict:
    People who loves to watch horror cum thriller kind of movies, or probably can say that who are fan of this kind of genres, will not be disappointed after watching this 1 ½ hour movie.

    Rating:
    3 / 5
