A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street ★★★★★

“Reality sucks.”

The most inventive slasher. Dreamy, surreal, filled to the brim with wildly imaginative and effective scares. Gets that perfectly sleepy atmosphere just right, in its best moments evoking the grotesque surrealism of Un Chien Andalou. Made my girlfriend not wanna fall asleep, yet she’s still down for the sequels. Craven’s finest.
