A Nightmare on Elm Street
Teenagers in a small town are dropping like flies, apparently in the grip of mass hysteria causing their suicides. A cop's daughter, Nancy Thompson, traces the cause to child molester Fred Krueger, who was burned alive by angry parents many years before. Krueger has now come back in the dreams of his killers' children, claiming their lives as his revenge. Nancy and her boyfriend, Glen, must devise a plan to lure the monster out of the realm of nightmares and into the real world...

" Not my favorite Elm Street but a close second. I love the way the dream Sequence where shot in this movie and all the movies really, the light fog weird interaction and rooms that seem to be way to large. Freddy is my favorite of the classic 80s horror movie icons he’s so fun compared to rest them I can’t help but love him, just goofy little child murder..I kinda just wanna hang out with to be honest..invite me to your boiler room!!

"So I bought the first 4 of these to watch with my mates and/or my parents quite some time ago. I’ve seen this one before but forgot most of it. I really don’t understand it. The logic is that he can only attack in dreams, but he seems to attack while they are awake as well. Either that or they sleep at odd times and in weird ways. I don’t understand the ending either. Who died, who lived, it just doesn’t make sense. Out of all the slashers Freddie is the least scary. He’s just kind of silly especially with the part where he’s running funny with giant slinky arms. Who comes up with this stuff?"
