    Heartfelt, fun. I took my daughter to see this (as her first theatrical experience) and we could not stop talking about it on the way home. Pixar really hit all the right notes on this one. Plus, I’m happy that everything I read suggests that the film is culturally sensitive and that Disney/Pixar employed its critics for that purpose.

    Starring a time traveling baby Tom Atkins as a young Stephen Dorff as our hero Glen, this gem from my childhood never disappoints. Throw in Nerdpunk™ (Credit to Sean @ THS), some druid "heavy metal" or whatever that opens a hell portal when played backwards and geodes, and now you're cooking with gas. This film moves at a nice clip and you're never bored. SFX don't really hold up but nostalgia really gets me over that hump. Overall a nice, relatively friendly film to ease into the Halloween season.

    ★★★★½

    The OG arrived in style. No gimmicks, no goofs, no bullshit. Just angry malicious Freddy. And his long arms. And his nursery rhyme. And John Saxon.
