Cody’s review published on Letterboxd:
Seeing such an iconic film as A Nightmare on Elm Street is honestly such a treat to view on the big screen. There's no other experience like that of seeing a film in the theater, and A Nightmare on Elm Street truly is one of the best films to watch in theaters. The dark room offers no distractions from the terrors on screen, the sound isolates you to only hear the horrifying sounds of Freddy's claws on metal. The crisp air offers no warmth, no comfort for the terrified viewer. A Nightmare on Elm Street is in no means the most horrifying film to ever be released, but it still is one of the most iconic and is very deserving of it's iconic status. Wes Craven created one of the most interesting and terrifying characters to grace screens, a character people still know today. A Nightmare on Elm Street is an amazing film that really was a treat to see in theaters.
