A Nightmare on Elm Street ★★★★★

A true classic of the slasher subgenre as well as the horror genre in general, A Nightmare on Elm Street put director Wes Craven on the map with this wildly inventive and downright minacious horror feature that still perfectly holds up even now.

With the film meticulously utilizing its ingenious premise to the fullest, Robert Englund thoughtfully bringing the titular Freddy Krueger to life in gleeful style, entirely dedicated cast which features one of the greatest final girls ever through Heather Langenkamp, and also not letting up on the outstandingly imaginative gore-drenched kills throughout its runtime, A Nightmare on Elm Street is for sure Craven's crowning achievement in every lasting regard.
