Finally, we’ve come to the end of Elm Street with the poorly-received 2010 remake. It goes without saying that most fans of the franchise seem to despise this effort from director Samuel Bayer. With Robert Englund out of the role and a script which many fans are highly critical of, the film was essentially dead in the water upon arrival. It has since garnered a reputation as one of the worst film remakes of all time, killing New Line’s plans to develop further sequels at the time.

While the movie itself leaves a lot to be desired, credit has to be given where it’s due. And the artist behind the 2010 remake’s artwork did a decent job designing the film’s poster. If there are issues with the film’s story and/or Freddy’s look, they’re masked very well by the poster design. All we’re given is Freddy Krueger in all his glory with his trademark fedora, glove, and sweater. And that proved to be enough, as the movie was an incredible success at the box office. Tons of people came to see it — but, as it turns out, most didn’t like it.
