Michael Sumpter’s review published on Letterboxd:
Its been a few years since I visited Elm street and not much has changed. This is still up near the top of my favorite horror movie list. This movie does not scare me much anymore but in my younger years I could barely sleep at night. The idea of a killer getting to you through your dreams really got to me. The Freddy Kruger costume my older brother had didnt help much either. The story, the acting, the special effects, and the scares are all done well and have held up great over the years. This is a must see. Even non horror fans should give this a shot, its that good.
