"I probably could have saved her if I'd have moved sooner. But I thought it was just another nightmare, like the one I had the night before. There was... there was this guy; he had knives for fingers."

The story of this film is based around a group of teenagers who all begin to have nightmares about the same person (if you can call him that). They work out that this guy, named Fred ... read more

It's hard to believe that there are people that haven't seen this movie. There is a man who follows you in your dreams. He kills you because that is the only place he can truly strike fear. Leaving a teenager alive to tell all their friends just makes business go up in Freddy's book; and gives him alot more minds to invade and lives to take. Killed after being burned by the townspeople after being... read more

"Aside from Micheal, Freddy Kruger is the greatest horror villain ever. His kills and dark humor are amazing. The first is the best, thought. The remake, thought widly hated, I really enjoyed."

"Nancy Nancy isn't your typical high school student. She doesn't believe the lies told to her by authority figures. She's smart, resourceful, inventive, and pretty on top of all that. She reads books about booby traps (what?!) and she doesn't cringe and whimper in the face of evil. But all that sleep deprivation has made her cranky and edgy. Don't even think about asking for her hall pass. Nancy Thompson doesn't do hall passes. And, unlike the screaming birds you find in most horror movies, "

"Day 08 - A movie that you’ve seen countless times A ridiculous amount of times. There was a time where it felt as though I had it on a continuous loop for a full year. I was just obsessed with it, and still am. I now know this film like the back of my hand. I love it. "
