A Nightmare on Elm Street

Dir: Wes Craven
Cast: Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, Ronee Blakley, John Saxon

When a group of teenagers discover they are all having nightmares about the same creepy guy, they realise they must stay awake if they want to stay alive. Often grouped in with the slasher sub-genre that dominated US horror cinema of the 1980s, Craven’s most infamous creation was in fact rooted firmly in the supernatural, making Freddy Krueger a different kind of vengeful ghost, whose haunting ground was not a house, but the collective subconscious minds of a generation of vulnerable adolescents.

With its iconic villain, intense scares, and memorable soundtrack, Nightmare on Elm Street is a must-see for horror fans.
