Local teenagers are being haunted and killed in their dreams by a monster Freddy Krueger. Nancy is the only survivor who has a chance and willing to face the monster.
Director: Wes Craven
STC Genre: Monster In The House (Supra-Natural) – obviously
- “Monster” – Freddy Krueger
- “House” – in this case the local block, the boiler room, and often literally the house
- “Sin” – the mob of angry parents who killed Freddy
No wonder this is considered a classic of horror. While not exactly my favorite genre, I enjoyed the drama of the story (save the gore), and the way the movie created the suspense, without ever going over the top, but never losing it either. Overall the story, acting, directing, cinematography, editing – everything was top-notch.
