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

" To celebrate my 13th birthday and becoming a teenager, my older cousin wanted me to watch A Nightmare on Elm Street. I was able to watch the first few minutes of it but eventually, my cousin turned it off because he thought I would be too scared to watch. Since then, I wanted to finish watching this film because the stuff I got see beforehand had some awesome visuals and incredible atmosphere. Years later, I got the chance to get a complete viewing of this film. It's such a shame that this only"

"Wes Craven's 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' remains on of the most iconic horror films of all time and its inventive plotting and the brilliant central creation of Freddy Krueger ensured that it became both a critical and commercial success. The film follows the story of a group of teenagers who are terrorised in their dreams by the disfigured, stripy-jumpered Krueger. As they are picked off one by one, the remaining targeted kids try to stay awake long enough to work out a way out of the situation"

"31.10.2015 "I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy." Man, this really is one of my all time favorite horror movies. Freddy Krueger is one of the greatest movie villains of all time, and he has never been better than he was here in the first movie. Robert Englund really was the perfect casting choise here. I have talked about this movie coubtless times before so i don't really feel like going into it that much again. But i do have to say this movie made me miss Wes Craven evern more. Sure, his last few "

"October 29 Re-watch "Whatever you do... don't fall asleep." This movie is just as scary as it was the first time I saw it. While this series has spawned a few good sequels, none of them have ever matched the same level of greatness that this movie has. Even though they made Wes Craven change the ending, even that still works and in a way I'm glad they made it into a series as the concept was so creative that there had to be at least one sequel to it.

"OCTOBER 29: I like the idea of the plotline that is used in this movie (a killer who attacks in dreams), which is why I watch it every year, but watching Heather Langenkamp "act" is about as entertaining to me as listening to fingernails on a chalkboard. I get a lot of negative feedback for this, but I have to admit that I prefer the remake to the original. Robert Englund is priceless as Freddy, but that's the only thing the original has going for it. And Johnny Depp's death scene. FAVORITE SCE"
