Aro Recommended Nightmare On Elm Street, A


USA 1984, 88 minutes
Dir. Wes Craven
Rating: [R]
Genres: Horror / Fantasy, Monster Mash, Youth

Topics: Mindwarp.


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.
