Silent J’s review published on Letterboxd:
Highly original for it's time. Very imaginative and creative dream sequences and kills. The first image you see of Freddy Krueger may still cause nightmares to this day. This isn't the jokester that was portrayed in later films. He is a terrifying, uncompromising, and horrifying menace who you would think twice about laughing at.
Still, after all these years, this film still manages to scare the piss out of me everytime and still stand out as the very best Nightmare film.
