Aroview: The maiden nightmare of the razor-fingered dream-demon Freddie Krueger, who went on to become the pre-eminent horror icon of the 1980s.
Was simply part of a whole wave of teenage 'stalk-and-slash' movies at the time, but distinguished itself by entering a realm of unreality that could exploit the improving sophistication in low-budget special effects.

5 stars (Exceptional) Freddy Krueger is not only fantastically frightening, but he's also darkly funny. This Wes Craven is a masterpiece, and a close second-best horror film to my favourite: Carpenter's Halloween.~Tom H
