A Nightmare on Elm Street is about a child molester who was burned alive by the town parents. He gets his revenge in the dream world where things are his rules and if you die in your dreams you die in real life as well. Every town has a legend that is untold and this is the legend of Elm Street. This movie may be one of the greatest horror classics of all time. Wes Craven (director) did a fantastic job creating the story. He also made one of the scariest slashers the movie industry has ever seen. What made this movie so great was that Wes Craven made dreams turn into reality. I love how he made the children feel safe in their actual lives but made them terrified to enter their dreams. The movie keeps you on the edge wondering if the child is going to fall asleep or not. Honestly, the special effects were the best that I have seen in any movie. When the children enter the dream world the screen gets all smokey and red like they are in hell, which helps you realize when they are asleep. Overall the movie was fantastic and deserves a 10/10. The only thing i did not like was the ending but I guess they made it like that to show you there will be another film. I absolutely recommend this movie though if you have not seen it go watch it you will not regret it.
