A horribly disfigured man with knives for fingers stalks and kills teens in their dreams and subsequently, real life.
The original A Nightmare on Elm Street stands head and shoulders above every other movie in the series for a variety of reasons. Obviously it has the originality factor going for it, introducing audiences to Freddy and his evil work, but it is also much darker than the other films.
Freddy isn't the comedian cracking cheesy one-liners every time he slaughters a teenager, but he still has a subtly dark sense of humor that draws viewers in.
The film has great pacing and special effects, with far and away the best final act of the series. Heather Langenkamp is the best as Nancy Thompson she is my favorite horror actress of all time Heather was unique heroine who has to fight against Freddy Krueger Robert Englund who stalks Nancy and her friends in their dreams and hunts and kills them one by one.
Nancy finds out a dark secret in her family and why Freddy is hunting her. She try's to warn her friends, her parents no one believes her that Freddy is real and alive.
She has to fight for survival her self by going back in to her dreams and get Freddy out of her dream in to the real world.
The bathtub scene is my favorite in the film in which Nancy is sleeping in the bath and you can see Freddy's glove with knives for fingers try's to stab Nancy instead he try's do drown her in the bathtub, but she manages to swim back up to the opening of her bathtub and pulls herself to safety, bad-ass scene.
Nancy Thompson was so clever, beautiful bad-ass smart and intense carefully she out smart Freddy. She put booby traps for Freddy Awesome!
Jonny Depp is bad-ass as Glen Lantz he is so awesome and he plays his character so believable.
He later played Tom Hanson in 21 Jump Street he was so good in the 80's and convincible playing his character he should be the hero in this movie.
Robert Englund is the only one and a real horror creep scary Freddy Kruger only Robert could play a character like this.
He is the best horror icon ever. Freddy Krueger is a horror icon ever. A Nightmare on Elm Street stars: Amanda Wyss as Christina "Tina" Gray was excellent as Nancy's friend from school who had a the same dream about the same disfigured man with knives for fingers who is stalking her.
John Saxon as Lt. Thompson is so great in the film as Nancy father trying to figure it out the murders and helping her daughter out.
In which Freddy Krueger is scary villain he is not a comedian like he was in the sequels. The plot focuses on four teenagers who are invaded and killed in their dreams, thus killed in reality, by a burnt killer with a bladed glove.
The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago.
The film is credited with carrying on many tropes found in low-budget horror films of the s and s, originating in John Carpenter 's Halloween , including the morality play that revolves around sexual promiscuity in teenagers resulting in their eventual death, leading to the term " slasher film ".
Tina Gray awakens from a nightmare wherein she is attacked by a disfigured man wearing a blade-fixed glove, and her mother points out four mysterious slashes on her nightgown.
The following morning, she is consoled by her best friend, Nancy Thompson , and Nancy's boyfriend, Glen Lantz.
The two stay at Tina's house following her mother going out of town, but their sleepover is interrupted by Tina's boyfriend, Rod Lane. When Tina falls asleep, she is chased by the man.
Rod awakens to Tina's thrashing, and witnesses her being dragged and fatally slashed by an unseen force. He flees as Nancy and Glen awaken to find a bloodied Tina dead.
The next day, Rod is arrested by Nancy's father, Lieutenant Don Thompson, despite his pleas of innocence. At school, Nancy falls asleep in class and the man, calling himself Freddy Krueger , chases her to the boiler room.
When cornered, she burns her arm on a pipe and awakens, where she notices the burn mark on her arm. At home, Nancy falls asleep in the bathtub and is nearly drowned by Freddy.
She goes to Rod at the police station, who tells her about what happened to Tina, and Nancy believes that Freddy is responsible for Tina's death. Nancy invites Glen to watch over her as she falls asleep.
She sees Freddy preparing to kill Rod in his cell, but then turns his attention towards her. She runs away and wakes up when her alarm clock goes off.
Freddy kills Rod when he wraps the bed sheets around his neck as a noose, and Nancy and Glen go to the cell to find his body hanging.
At Rod's funeral, Nancy's parents become more worried when she describes Freddy in her dreams. Her mother, Marge, takes her to a dream clinic, where she manages to grab Freddy's hat and pull it from the dream into her possession.
Marge begins to drink heavily and bars the windows at home. She tells Nancy that Freddy was a child murderer released on a technicality, and the parents burned him alive in a form of vigilante justice.
Nancy realizes that Freddy desires revenge and she tries to call Glen to warn him, but his parents prevent her from speaking to him.
Glen falls asleep and is killed by Freddy, and a large fountain of blood is released in his room. Now alone, Nancy puts Marge to sleep and asks Don, who is across the street investigating Glen's death, to break into the house in 20 minutes.
She rigs booby traps around the house, and grabs Freddy out of the dream and into the real world. After Freddy suffers from the traps, she lights him on fire and locks him in the basement, before rushing to the door for help.
As the police arrive to find Freddy has escaped from the basement, Nancy and Don go upstairs to see a burning Freddy smothering Marge in her bedroom.
After Don puts out the fire, Freddy and Marge vanish into the bed. When Don leaves the room, Freddy rises from the bed behind Nancy.
When she realizes that he is powered by his victim's fear, Nancy calmly turns her back on him and he evaporates when he attempts to lunge at her, defeating him.
Nancy steps outside into a bright morning where all of her friends and mother are still alive. She gets into Glen's car to go to school where the top comes down and suddenly locks them in, and the car begins to drive uncontrollably down the street.
As two girls playing jump rope are seen chanting Freddy's nursery rhyme, Marge is grabbed by Freddy through the front door window. The task of creating Krueger's disfigured face fell to makeup man David Miller, who based his creation on photographs of burn victims he obtained from the UCLA Medical Center.
A Nightmare on Elm Street contains many biographical elements, taking inspiration from director Wes Craven's childhood. Some of the men died in their sleep soon after.
Medical authorities called the phenomenon Asian Death Syndrome. The condition itself afflicted only men between the ages of 19 and 57 and is believed to be sudden unexplained death syndrome or Brugada syndrome , or both.
Other sources also attribute the inspiration for the film to be a student film project made by students of Craven's at Clarkson University.
The student film parodied contemporary horror films, and was filmed along Elm Street in Potsdam, New York   the town in the film was named Madstop—Potsdam spelled backwards.
The film's villain, Freddy Krueger, draws heavily from Craven's early life. One night, a young Craven saw an elderly man walking on the sidepath outside the window of his home.
The man stopped to glance at a startled Craven and walked off. This served as the inspiration for Krueger. By Craven's account, his own adolescent experiences led to the naming of Freddy Krueger.
He had been bullied at school by a child named Fred Krueger, and he named his villain accordingly. The colored sweater he chose for his villain was based on the DC Comics character Plastic Man , and Craven chose to make Krueger's sweater red and green, after reading an article in Scientific American in that said the two most clashing colors to the human retina were this particular combination.
Craven strove to make Krueger different from other horror-film villains of the era. Leatherface , Michael Myers , Jason ," he recalled in So I thought of him being burned and scarred.
I gave the idea to our special-effects guy, Jim Doyle. He pitched it to several studios, but each one of them rejected it for different reasons.
The first studio to show interest was Walt Disney Productions , although they wanted Craven to tone down the content to make it suitable for children and pre-teens.
Universal Studios also passed; Craven, who was in desperate personal and financial straits during this period, later framed their rejection letter on the wall of his office.
Finally, the fledgling and independent New Line Cinema corporation—which had up to that point only distributed films, rather than making its own—gave the project the go-ahead.
Although New Line has gone on to make much bigger and more profitable films, Nightmare holds such an important place in the company's history that the studio is often referred to as "The House That Freddy Built".
Actor David Warner was originally slated to play Freddy. Replacing him was difficult at first. Then Robert Englund auditioned.
To get that understanding, Englund had darkened his lower eyelids with cigarette ash on his way to the audition and slicked his hair back.
I sat there and listened to Wes talk. He was tall and preppy and erudite. I posed a bit, like Klaus Kinski , and that was the audition," he said later.
He took the part because it was the only project that fit his schedule during the hiatus between the V miniseries and series. Craven said he wanted someone very "non-Hollywood" for the role of Nancy, and he believed Langenkamp met this quality.
Johnny Depp was another unknown when he was cast; he initially went to accompany a friend Jackie Earle Haley , who went on to play Freddy in the remake so he could audition, yet eventually got the part of Glen.
Jason and Depp gets his own nod in a cameo role in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare as a guy on TV. Thomas Howell were considered.
According to Shaye, all the film's original investors backed out at one point or another during pre-production. Half the funding came from a Yugoslavian guy who had a girlfriend he wanted in movies.
Principal photography began in June in several locations throughout Los Angeles, California. The fictional address of the house that appears in the film is Elm Street; the actual house is a private home located in Los Angeles on North Genesee Avenue.
They put the set so that it was upside down and attached the camera so that it looked like the room was right side up, then they poured gallons of red water into the room, because the normal film blood would not make the right effect for the geyser.
During the filming of this scene, the blood poured in an unexpected way causing the rotating room to spin. Much of the blood spilled out of the bedroom window covering Craven and Langenkamp.
The tub was put in a bathroom set that was built over a swimming pool. During the underwater sequence Heather Langenkamp was replaced with a stuntwoman.
The "melting staircase" as seen in Nancy's dream was Robert Shaye's idea; it was created using pancake mix.
Jsu Garcia , who was credited as Rod under the name "Nick Corri", says the production was difficult for him. He had recently come off a period of homelessness , and was still dealing with the depression from that by snorting heroin in the bathroom between takes.
In , he revealed that he was high on that drug during the scene between him and Langenkamp in his jail cell.
A scene from Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead appears on a television when Nancy is trying to stay awake about halfway through. This was in response to Raimi featuring a Hills Have Eyes poster in the film.
Wes Craven originally planned for the film to have a more evocative ending: Nancy kills Krueger by ceasing to believe in him, then awakes to discover that everything that happened in the film was an elongated nightmare.
However, New Line leader Robert Shaye demanded a twist ending, in which Krueger disappears and the film all appears to have been a dream, only for the audience to discover that they are watching a dream-within-a-dream-within-a-dream, where Fred reappears as a car that "kidnaps" Nancy and her friends, followed by Fred reaching through a window on the front door to pull Nancy's mother inside.
