Well, now - Here's a perfect bedtime story that's sure to slash & slice its way right into the darkest depths of your dreams once those R.E.M.s have accelerated into high gear.

With panic and fright as its prime motive, A Nightmare On Elm Street somehow still manages (30 years after its initial, 1984 release) to pack a considerable-sized wallop of honest-to-goodness terror regardless of being followed by numerous sequels and inevitable copy-catting.

Yes. This film's story may be somewhat far-fetched, to say the least. But, nonetheless, it still clearly remains an effective slice of twisted horror that has quite rightly earned for itself its status as a bona-fide cult classic.

Director Wes Craven certainly did create an enduring character when he gleefully introduced Freddy Krueger (with his charred, red face & scraping metal fingernails) to all the ravenous fans faithfully devoted to the art of brutal Slasher Cinema.

All-in-all - Here's a tale of terror that truly is a "Scream!".

This is easily one of the best horror movies made, why they ruin classics with remakes I'll never understand. This is a must see for any horror fan. This movie is also Johnny Depp's big screen debut. I highly recommend this movie.

They had a chance to make something extremely frightening but completely missed the mark. Was a terrible remake. The original may be cheesy compared to newer horror films but it is by far better than this flick.
