* TragicMonster: Averted. At first, it looks like that this version of Freddy is the spirit of an innocent man who was wrongly murdered for supposedly sexually abusing children. Then towards the end, it's revealed that he actually ''did'' abuse them.

This 2010 film serves as both a remake of ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'' and a reboot of the actual ''Elm Street'' franchise; RooneyMara stars as Nancy and Jackie Earl Haley plays the nightmare himself, Freddy Krueger. The film generally remains close to the origin of Freddy and the overall events of the original film, though it does make some superficial changes to both.

* PoliceAreUseless: Aside from arresting Jesse for the apparent murder of Kris, the police in the film barely do anything at all in looking into the recent string of murders. When the parents kill Freddy in the past, there isn't a rouge policeman even there to show there is an actual presence in the town.

While the film became a modest box office hit -- it earned more money than any other film in the ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' franchise, barring ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' -- but received a lukewarm reception from critics and mixed reactions from Freddy fans.

fans. Enough so that Platinum Dunes decided that they should simply leave the franchise here rather than follow it up with a sequel.

* DoubleStandard: It is made very clear that [[spoiler:all of the kids were molested by Freddy. "You're gonna pay for what you did to my son!" and other lines. But the film only shows Freddy taunting and flirting with the girls, and at no point did Quentin seem to blink at the realization of "hey, ''I'' was raped too!"]]

* ShoutOut: [[Film/PulpFiction Waking up an unconscious woman by jabbing an adrenaline-filled needle straight down between her breasts.]] Also, three of the characters are named "Nancy," "Jesse," and "Kris"...the protagonists in the first three original Nightmare movies.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Freddy's motivation seems to stem from this, as evidenced by this quote.

* VillainousBreakdown: Freddy's not usually prone to losing his cool, but he briefly snaps into an almost childish tantrum. Clearly jealous over Quentin and Nancy's growing affection, he attacks Quentin by banging his head against the boiler room pipes over and over again while furiously screaming [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "You! Can't! Save! Her!"]] He regains his composure after thinking he's gotten the upper hand again, and quickly reverts back to his calm hide-and-seek taunts, [[spoiler: which turns out to be a bad idea - Quentin survives the attack and ''does'' save her]].
