Plot Summary

In the early 80's a technical mistake made by Springwood police officers freed the child killer known as The Springwood Slasher (AKA Fred Krueger). The families of the children that were killed became outraged and hunted down Krueger, before taking the law into their own hands and burning him alive. Now years later after the mysterious murder of a teenager, her friend Nancy has suddenly become the newest target of this deadly game. Returning in the children's dreams his reign of terror returns and with more force than ever. Using his new-found powers Freddy now not only slaughters the children but uses some of their greatest fears to do so. With only her boyfriend supporting her Nancy must discover her inner strength and find a way to destroy "The Boogey Man" if she is to survive the night.

This Nightmare is a dream. 0

A Nightmare on Elmstreet, the original version is a good film. It is full of thrills and Robert Englund horror humor. This is like its remade version clean for a horror film and the kids don't act like jerks or idiots so you want them to actually die. Pretty good special effects for the time actually. Very good for a horror film,highly recommended. However I thought Freddy Krueger getting hit by all those traps Nancy left looked silly and it reminded me of a horror film version of Home Alone.   ...
