"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

"Re-watch - April 21st All month long, Alamo Drafthouse has been showing some "Class of 1984" movies. Sadly I missed Purple Rain, and less sadly I missed Temple of Doom (not my favorite of the series, but they had a dinner menu screening with "chilled monkey brains" and a Quote-Along, either of which would have made it totally worth sitting through again). But no way was I going to miss this one, what with it permanently sitting somewhere in my top 10 horror films ever. Back in the late '80s/ear"
