A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street ★★★½

Much like the original Halloween, this is an early work made by a filmmaking genius that I appreciate more for its formal innovation at the time than I do for the film itself as a whole. Great filmmaking, solid performances, and some very effective and weird imagery mostly elevate an incredibly thin script. Looking forward to checking out New Nightmare!
