Synopsis: In the early 1980’s, a psychopath named Freddy Krueger – known as the Springwood Slasher – murdered several children with a glove outfitted with straight razor blades attached to the fingers. When a foolish decision by a judge sets him free, Krueger is burned alive in the boiler room where he worked by an angry mob of the parents whose children he terrorized & murdered. Years after his death, the children whose parents were responsible for Krueger’s death – including Nancy Thompson, daughter of the police officer who arrested Krueger – are experiencing terrifying nightmares involving a burned man wearing a glove with razor blades on the fingers. The ghost of Freddy Krueger is haunting their dreams, and when Nancy’s best friend Tina dies in her sleep violently during a dream confrontation with Krueger, Nancy realizes she must find a way to stop the evil psychopath’s reign of terror – or never sleep again.

One Comment on “A Nightmare on Elm Street”

    Once again, humanising the villain (like they did in the Halloween remake), which is just cliche. Using the same iconic shot of Nancy in the bathtub, but using the typical MTV gimmicks of editing, the tacky MTV style horror of the way the movie comes across, and also Freddy’s voice and the fact they used CGI on his face instead of make up. I could go on forever as to why I think this looks like a piece of shit.

    But I think above all else I actually consider the original to be perhaps one of the greatest and most intelligent slasher films ever made, perfectly combining realism with horror fantasy, and focusing quite strongly on many psychological aspects such as the way the parents neglected there kids (in fact it could be seen as a metaphor, there really is alot more to this films than meets the eye), in a way that most other slasher films that I’ve seen haven’t. I actually say its the third best slasher film ever made after Psycho and Halloween, so maybe I’m just a little pissed off that they’ve gone for a rather cheap angle with this one and actually showing us how Freddy got burnt. When it was explained half way through in the original, by Nancy’s mom, it sent shivers down my spine. The timing of it was so perfect, it was almost like a twist. The fact they never showed it added to this effect, so I’m kind of pissed off that they actually decided to show it in this one.
