Synopsis:
Teenagers that are all neighborhood friends begin having the same dream of a horribly disfigured man who stalks them in their dreams. The teenagers discover that they all share a common link from their childhood that makes them targets for Krueger.
Intention:
To remove all the silly humor and remove all the unnecessary dialogue to improve the flow of the movie. I'm also going to try and do what was orignally mean't to happen with Krueger being innocent which makes his motive for killing even stronger as he is now out for revenge for being accused of a crime he never commited.

I already liked the theatrical cut of this except for the ending, but this is still a shelf-replacer. Most importantly, the random, out-of-context sequel tease that wraps up the film is gone! And not that there's a lot of fat to cut in this film, but a few bits of clunky dialogue, and a couple of lines by Freddy that feel like a half-ass nod to his previous, hamming-it-up portrayal are also gone. The film moves lightning-quick now at 81 minutes and it has the effect of you just never really knowing when you're in a dream sequence. This is again partly due to some clever writing, where they work in the real science of "micro-napping" as an evolution of the "don't fall asleep" methodology that had become rather old hat in the Nightmare series to this point. The film still never really tells you how any of this is possible, but overall it's a strong movie that feels legitimately terrifying and pretty refreshing, two things I've never said about a Nightmare film since the first one. The editing is seamless, looks and sounds great, and I never really missed anything that was cut, except for perhaps the bathtub sequence, which seemed like such a tease. The only thing I'd recommend would be a slow fade out at the end to give it more of a sense of "wrapping up". Maybe start the music on a bigger beat to help with that, too, as the last line isn't really delivered with that feeling so you need a bit of editorial help. Overall, a great edit that I highly recommend.

I watched the Jackie Earle Haley led 2010 Elm Street film before watching this edit. I probably am in the minority but I quite enjoy it and think Haley did a fine job. At the end I always say it could be better, and thanks to youngy94 it is. Thanks for the good work!

I don´t like the Elm Street remake but youngy94 does a great job here in removing unecessary stuff and in the end is a better version than the original. I still don´t like the movie but that is not youngy94´s fault. He really improved the movie! (I watched the V2)

I saw version 2 of the edit.

I think that the movie is much better than the original. Most of the boring parts are gone and the new score for the credits is a nice wink to the fans. The missing parts are not missed at all and everything flows nicely.

There might be room for improvement as I wrote in private feedback, but overall I think that youngy94 did a great job in improving an otherwise flawed movie. Definitely better than the original cut.

Thank you for your time and for letting me see your movie!

Massive improvement over the original. This edit commits to the innocent Kruger that the theatrical should have. Only wished there was a nightmare for Quentin like him almost drowning, but it's a small gripe. Would recommend!
