A Nightmare on Elm Street Instrueret af Wes Craven
There is something primally frightening about the idea of dreams coming to life, because they can almost be remnants of previous lives—and in this case, as the haunting of Freddy Krueger comes from the errors of the parents who burned him to death in a fit of vigilante justice, fear itself becomes hereditary. Craven thereby taps into the essence of great horror, conceiving a tale that allowed him, and us, to explore the disturbing hidden depths of our humanity.

More so than its heavy-handed commentary on the dark underbelly of the American suburbs, A Nightmare on Elm Street is more interesting as a film about how cinema is a medium which preys on the emotions of its viewers.

Guess you had to be there at the time. Maybe Freddy Krueger becomes more interesting when he starts cracking wise in later installments, but he doesn’t remotely frighten or unnerve me here, and the whole is-it-a-dream? business is very clumsily telegraphed throughout. Shock ending makes zero sense. Only intriguing element is Heather Langenkamp, who isn’t much of a thespian but startles in this context merely by looking and acting so utterly ordinary.
