I sat next to Robert Englund at the bar yesterday and let me tell you, those eyes could still give me nightmares. What has become a horror cult classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street sits well in any tep ten horror list for a reason, it preys on what every viewer fears the most, nightmares, where your biggest fears can come without warning. Freddy Kruger will always remain one of the most recognizeabl... read more

"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

"Dos grandes iconos del terror en un día, me hicieron ver los grandes cambios que ha sufrido el genero pero eso no es el tema. Esta película a diferencia de Friday the 13th tiene toda la esencia de Wes Craven, a que me refiero con esto?. Simple Este director sabe como funcionan estas películas a través de sus personajes, en este caso Nancy Thompson que es inteligente no porque trate de sobrevivir como las demás Scream Queens sino porque ella va mas allá y trata de resolver un misterio para "

Bml93's Horror Nightmares - October 2017 (17 movies items)

" It's one of my favorite horror films and Freddy Krueger is one of the coolest horror villains to ever be put on film. His iconic presence in this film is essentially everything I want from slasher villain. He's mysterious, ruthless, funny and diabolical. His weapon, outfit and powers are great, while his kills are imaginative and fun. A Nightmare on Elm Street is not necessarily a scary film any more, but it's a fiendishly entertaining film that manages to put on a spooky atmosphere and combine"

Movie Reviews (351-400) (50 movies items)

" One of the most effective horror characters in the 1980s showing his true colors before he became a comic parody of himself in the sequels. Excellent teenage actors. Johnny Depp getting sucked by his own bed. The terrible fate of Amanda Wyss. The scenes are surprising and inventive up to an ending that is sadly a little useless and annoying to be honest. "
