Ahmed Aiman’s review published on Letterboxd:
A Nightmare on Elm Street is a highly imaginative, very smart and thought-provoking slasher film that relies on suspense to engage you not on cheap jump scares .... well, except one or two.
Also, the practical effects are very cool and still hold up today.
It's just the ending that is so rushed, confusing, obtuse and overall unsatisfying. Putting this ending aside, this movie is one of the best horror movies ever!
