A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

The first in the Freddy Krueger line of Nightmare on Elm Street movies. This one has a teenager who discovers that people can be murdered in their dreams by this boogie man, Freddy Krueger. You must see this so that you can know why Freddy got so popular and spawned so many horror movies. The classic long armed Freddy (Robert Englund) running down the street and the iconic rotating room splashed in blood make this horror movie a true classic. I remember watching the school scene with the dead girl thinking that is so scary, I was little at that time sneaking horror movies when I could, classic scene. Wes Craven both directed and wrote the script for this classic Nightmare on Elm Street film.


In the dreams of his victims, a spectral child murderer stalks the children of the members of the lynch mob that killed him.
