When he has you in your sleep, who is there to save you? Every small-town neighborhood has an old legend that never dies.
For the residents of Elm Street, Fred Krueger is the demonic soul that plagues their nightmares. Krueger was an evil child molester, burned alive by the parents of the children he had slain in the past.
Nancy Heather Langenkamp continually experiences these haunting visions in which the permanently scarred man chases her through the shadows of a boiler room -- the same room in which he used to slay his helpless victims.
Nancy considers her dreams to be typical nightmares one of her best friends is apparently "sliced" to death during a deep sleep in her home. Blending fantasy with reality, Craven wrote and directed one of the most iconic horror films of all time, which -- similar to "Halloween" before it -- spawned an inferior legion of sequels and imitators, all of which continue to pale in comparison to the original.
The brilliance of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is that it relies on psychological fear vs. Some of the special effects are quite outdated but, unlike the "Nightmare" imitators, gore plays second to the plot and characters -- something rare in a horror film.
The sequels became sillier and gorier. In the original "Nightmare" it is interesting to note that Freddy is rarely given screen time at all -- we see his infamous hands wearing gloves with butter knives attached on the fingers to slice his victims , we see his hat, we see his sweater, we see his outline in the darkness of the shadows, but even when we finally see Freddy up-close, Craven manages to keep the camera moving so that we never gain a distinct image of the killer.
But in , long before Craven predicted his character would become a huge part of modern pop culture, Freddy was mysterious and not very funny at all.
The co-stars are acceptable at best. However the greatest performance is -- not surprisingly -- by Robert Englund, as Freddy, who is in the film barely at all.
Ironically, as mentioned above, this only makes the film succeed at scaring us. The direction is not as superb as "Halloween," and for that matter either is the film.
Over the years, "Nightmare" has arguably been given an overrated reputation, although it is inferior to "Halloween. The ending of the film becomes a bit muddled -- the booby traps are unfortunately a bit goofy and Freddy helplessly almost humorously chasing Nancy around her home supposedly trying to murder her is something the film could have done without -- but overall it is a satisfying mixture of horror, thriller and fantasy, a movie that taps into two seldom-recognized everyday events in human life, which are sleeping, and dreaming.
