Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)

Second feature film tonight, the movie that made kids afraid to go to sleep in the 1980's, Nightmare On Elm Street.

This is a true classic horror movie. And what a legacy it still has over 30 years later. The story follows a group of four friends who discover that they are being stalked and killed in their very own dreams. That is a terrifying idea to begin with, because when are you more vulnerable than when you are asleep? But the best part of the movie is Robert Englund playing Freddy Krueger. He is so damn good in this movie and absolutely scares the hell out of you. In fact all the cast is great, Heather Langenkamp is just perfect casting for Nancy, John Saxon who is a great actor to begin with brings belivability to being a father to Nancy, and even Johnny Depp before he got super famous is in this movie who is really funny and brings levity to a disturbingly scary movie. I love this movie. And you know....I still can't get over that Wes Craven died, I really can't. He was superb with directing this movie and I really wish he wasn't gone. I hope you enjoy this movie, and I would like to wish you all goodnight.
