A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

This is a solid movie. Dean falls asleep at a diner and his girlfriend hears him arguing with somebody and then he is killed. At his funeral several of his peers admit to having similar nightmares. Nancy (Rooney Mara) suspects that she and the others must have gone to school together as children. She discovers a photo with a bunch of students at a daycare center and she learns that her mother has been hiding something from her. There was a gardener at that school named Fred Krueger (Jackie Haley) who molested the students and now he is appearing in their dreams in order to kill them.

This is a remake of Wes Craven's 1984 film. In the first movie, Krueger was a killer and not just a child molester. The remake broke the record for midnight openings for a horror film, and was able to gross more in its opening weekend than the entire theatrical gross for four other Nightmare on Elm Street films. The film was shot in Illinois and Indiana.
