From modern horror master Wes Craven comes a timeless shocker that remains the standard bearer for terror.

Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) is having grisly nightmares. Meanwhile, her high-school friends, who are having the very same dreams, are being slaughtered in their sleep by the hideous fiend of their shared nightmares. When the police ignore her explanation, she herself must confront the killer in his shadowy realm.

Featuring John Saxon with Johnny Depp in his first starring role and mind-bending special effects, this horror classic gave birth to one of the most infamous undead villains in cinematic history: Freddy Krueger...

The first and the best of the series. This introduces us to a man named freddy who used to be a child killer who was burned and killed, he vowed revenge and he used the kid's fear to access there dreams to torture and kill the kids of the parents who killed him.
Freddy appeared 4 years after the friday the 13th series began and 6 after Halloween.
freddy isnt like the other ones he isnt mute he talks and that is more frightning.
if you have to only pick up one this is the one to go for.
With a new extras added and a crips digitally restored film and a nic DTS ex transfer this Disc is a must have to any horror or film fan.

ulitmate edition this is a fantastic dvd that goes beyond all the movie. If you have the region1 version, its almost the same but region2 version is slightly better. i ove these movies, however, they should do s.e for the rest of them. buy it!"!

This is the best of all the nightmare movies. This is when Freddy was scary ! People forget that Feddy was a Pedophile and child killer, that is before the parents found him and handed out there justice ! In later movies the Freddy became more a hero and forgot to be frightening. In this movie he is kept in the shadows and is never over exposed. After well over 20years this is still one of the best horror movies ever made and is still as frightening to this day. Just watch the scene when tina is woken from her sleep and goes to her back yard where Freddy is waiting. Also in the same scene look out for the very creepy bit where Freddy looks over a would be victim as she sleeps. That scene alone stopped me sleeping for days when I was a teenager ! The music alone is brilliant, it realy drips of warm muggy nights and impending doom. A Total Classic, and the best slasher movie ever. Please buy this now !

 Classic Horror that introduced us to Freddy Kruger...

This is one of the most notable horror movies of, not only the 80's but all time introducing us to one of cinema's most frightning charecters...Freddy Kruger, the lunatic killer with knifes for fingers and invading peoples dreams to kill them.

Freddy is a horror icon and this is his first ever outing, its absolutly terrifying. By murdering people in their dreams, with no chance of escape this takes a new turn on the slasher movie genre, how can you escape the sadistic clutches of a killer when your not even awake?

Wes Craven does a brilliant job directing the young teenagers (including an early role for Jonny Depp) and his dream sequences all of which are surreal and creepy, you will constantly be on edge just waiting for Freedy to jump out. Heather Langenkamp is brilliant as the stalked teenager Nancy as she tries her very best to avoid Freddy's wrath.

This is the most enjoyable of the Nightmare on Elm street series because Freddy is actually scary in later installments he is portrayed as a witty killer with funny sharp one-liners, so watch the original when you actually feared Freddy, this is horror at its best.
