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

I have had absolutely no desire to see this film all my life but seeing as I was getting into classic horror films, I decided to watch it and thought to myself "I cannot miss this!" My expectations were pretty high because it is the same director as Scream and I absolutely loved that! When I did see Nightmare On Elm Street, it wasn't as good as Scream but it was an absolutely terrifying, suspensef... read more

“Ah, the land of dreams...the place that we feel the most safe, where nothing can possibly harm you, but what if those sweet dreams weren't made of this at all? What if those dreams were horrifying? What if those dreams were fatal? What if if you woke up from having a particular terrifying nightmare only to find your friends had the same nightmare and weren't alive anymore? Our parents often say 'sweet dreams' to us when we go to sleep but those words aren't enough to keep the dark forces at bay. And what better dark force to haunt everyone's dreams than Freddy Krueger?

Based on a series of occurences that Wes Craven himself read about, about a bunch of teenagers being killed in their sleep, this is Nightmare On Elm Street. The movie that launched an icon, and what an icon indeed.” read more

"12.5. 2020 A supernatural child killer haunts teenagers in their dreams and a teenage girl realizes that she may be the only one who can stop him. A cult film director Wes Craven manages to create a unique, creepy atmosphere by relying on nightmarish images and surrealism. "A Nightmare on Elm Street" reminds us of a common problem: what if some day we wouldn't be able to differentiate the line between reality and illusion anymore? The ambiguous ending is one of the most thrilling ones ever."
