The premise is the same in this horror remake, as the razor fingered Freddy Krueger (Haley) comes back to haunt the dreams of Springwood's teens, with the rather nasty side effect that if he kills you in your sleep you die in real life. Haley is inspired casting and there's a nice update on Krueger's charred make-up.
