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

"17.6. (DVD) Broidi innostui jälleen Elm Streeteistä. Olisikohan tämä katsottu nyt ainakin sen kymmenen kertaa? Pappani ulkonäköä ja tyyliä omaava Freddy on limaisempi kuin koskaan aiemmin."

" Notes: Even though I respect this movie and I believe it deserves its reputation, I can't say I'm really a big fan though. Even so, I still thoroughly enjoyed it and it is definitely a must see for any decent horror fan. Indeed, it is absolutely the biggest classic directed by the great master of horror, Wes Craven and, on top of that, it was also the acting debut for Johnny Depp. Above all, this flick really had a great concept.

Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"Love blood, gore and knife-fingered ghosts? This is it then. The makers of this movie were inspired by a group of Laotian refugees who had died in throes of a nightmare. The medical reports said there was nothing wrong with them physically."

"Classic horror movie which has inspired many same genre films even on this day. Sets and practical effects are that homemade quality, which i love to see and story is that same old formula what we have seen many times nowadays in horror flicks. Wes Graven did many classics in his time like his film debut Last House On The Left (1972) which is/was banned in many countries because it was too disturbing and Scream Trilogy (1996-2011). Even when his movies reminded closely or distantly each others,"
