Wes Craven's 1980s slasher classic gets a slick "re-imagining". A group of teenagers in a small Ohio town find themselves drawn together by recurring nightmares featuring a terrifying figure in a striped pully and a pork pie hat. And razor-sharp blades strapped to his fingers. And then the nightmares get real... Commercials director Samuel Bayer has fashioned an efficient remake with Jackie Earle Haley replacing Robert Englund as vengeful Freddy Krueger.
