Nightmare on Elm Street 1-4Freddy Krueger has always been a favorite movie monster. The ability to terrorize people in their dreams is one of the scariest concepts out there. A Nightmare on Elm Street has plagued a few generations with nightmares of Freddy.

Wes Craven creates something in the Freddy series that is rare and exactly what I look for in a horror movie. Actual fear and scares instead of a gore fest. Sure, there’s blood and guts and gore, but many movies today forget about fear and go for the disgusting. I think maybe A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the reasons movies don’t scare me anymore. Nothing tops the bastard child of 1000 manics.

I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch the remake yet. To me, Robert Englund is Freddy. Remakes can be fun and different takes on a movie are interesting to me, so I’ll watch it someday.

Nightmare on Elm Street 5-8Unlike most people, I enjoyed the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street series. Sure, I liked some better than others, but I couldn’t get enough of Freddy. If they were still making A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s with Robert Englund as Freddy, I’m sure I would still be watching them. I might be wondering why, but I’d still be watching.

You could make an entire marathon out of just A Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

If anyone watches the remake, let me know what you thought of it. I’m interested to see something other than critic reviews since I seem to rarely agree with the critics.

Here’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 1-4 and A Nightmare on Elm Street 5-8 for the full Freddy experience.
