Set in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohio, the plot revolves around several teenagers who are stalked and killed in their dreams by Freddy Krueger. The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago.
Directed by Wes Craven, Nightmare On Elm Street was made for less than 2 million dollars and managed to earn all its costs back within the first week. It went on to become that rarity among films, one that both critics and audiences love. Villain Freddy Krueger became iconic in his own right and the film spawned several sequels, a television series and all manner of merchandise.
