Overview

The nightmares the teenage residents of Elm Street are having are so vivid and terrifying that some of them don’t wake up at all. When they get to talking, they realise the villainous, menacing man in a dirty, red and black striped sweater with knives on his fingers is appearing in all their dreams. What could they have done to all share the same nightmare — share a late night cheese buffet or three bean dip? A little snooping and the teens learn that their bogeyman, Freddy, is after payback for sins wrought by the Elm Street parents back in the day. As the kids try their best to avoid Freddy by never sleeping again, things gets hectic.

Why You Should See This Film

A brilliant part of the Nightmare premise is that it taps into two things: the weird, uncontrollable nature of our dreams (and nightmares), and how hard it is to stay awake for days on end (without chemical assistance). A Nightmare on Elm Street holds up as a genuinely scary horror classic with bonus retro value, both for people who grew up on the Freddy films and young’uns keen to discover it for the first time. It launched one of the longest-running slasher franchises, and features one of our all-time favourite final girls, Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp).
