Englund once again is in bravura form as Freddy, playing as much for nasty laughs as unnerving shocks.

Joe Leydon, Variety, 2009-03-26

 

The climactic punch-up fails to match the power of the first film's true ending, but in deconstructing his own bastardised creation, Craven redeems both the series and his own tarnished reputation.

Review, Time Out, 2006-06-24

 

An ingenious, cathartic exercise in illusion and fear.

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 2003-05-20

 

An intricately constructed horror film, it not only takes you to hell and back, but thoroughly engages the mind as well as the emotions.

Review, Globe and Mail, 2002-04-12

 

It's witty, smart, funny, entertaining, and you'll still like yourself in the morning for watching it.

Desson Thomson, Washington Post, 2000-01-01

 

[Craven] has brought back a sense of genuine horror to the series, in part by taking it to completely new ground, and in part by giving his actors a legitimate script to work with.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2000-01-01

 

I haven't been exactly a fan of the Nightmare series, but I found this movie, with its unsettling questions about the effect of horror on those who create it, strangely intriguing.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01

 

The new film recaptures the dark soul of the original through a clever conceit.

Richard Harrington, Washington Post, 2000-01-01

 

This one's defeated by the rigid formula.

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2010-04-05
