We've been on vacation for a few days to celebrate my daughter Azalea's 5th birthday. Before we left, we all watched A Nightmare on Elm Street together as a family. Unfortunately this coincides with the passing on Wes Craven, so we dedicate this review to him.
So, the plot is really simple. Teenagers fall asleep and Freddy Krueger kills them in their dreams. As I saw in the realistic documentary The Matrix, if you die in your dram, you die in real life. My theory about this film is about this film only and does not apply to any sequels, however many there are.
I had a hard time gleaning any information about Freddy Krueger from this film. The explanation from Nancy's mom seemed really quick. If Freddy kills children, why did he wait until everyone was in high school?
