A Nightmare on Elm Street is a 2010 American slasher movie directed by Samuel Bayer, and written by Wesley Strick and Eric Heisserer. The movie stars Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, Kyle Gallner, Rooney Mara, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, and Kellan Lutz.

It is a remake of Wes Craven's 1984 movie of the same name. It is produced by Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes. It was supposed to be a reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.

The movie was released to negative reviews on April 30, 2010 and made $115.6 million in the box office.[1]

Wes Cravan did not like the remake because the movie team refused to work with him, while Robert Englund supported the movie and Haley's performance as Krueger.
