Box Office





What to one prwtograpsei for one of the most notable horror films ever released? What to prwtograpsei for one of the figures ' impact ' horror, one of the most classic "bad guys" in the history of world cinema that heard the name Freddy Krueger ...

This is the most renowned and most important great horror movie Wes Craven. Clicking on a highly inventive and original centerpiece of the Craven masterfully combines the world of dreams to reality by developing the plot with a devilishly charming and persuasive versatility. The creepy guy in the striped shirt, the glove with the blades and burnt flesh emerges as the number one danger for the unlucky to dream as possible death in their dream is tantamount to death and in fact! You said nothing? This excellent idea was destined to become the main axis around which revolve several sequel that took advantage of the huge success of classic first party.

elm streetIn this film heroine Nancy is a teenage girl who sees her friends killed by the mysterious Freddy Krueger and simultaneously becomes a potential victim herself after she meets in her dreams to the haunting dismembered. Vainly trying to convince those around her for the freakish this threat that surrounds and all that remains is to try to carry the lethal Freddy out of the dream world in this reality. Gradually discovers the historical background of Krueger and the role played by her parents and parents of children in the region in conformation. Another great idea of Craven justifying the data around Freddy Krueger. The interpretations are generally happy with Heather Langenkamp to pull up half the weight of the film (the same will occur on the third party to provide "solutions") and the other half the Robert Englund in the role of Freddy Krueger daimonikoy. It is worth noting the first significant film appearance of Johnny Depp in the role of Nancy's boy and the perfect presence of Ronee Blakley in the role of tragic secretive mother of Nancy with a strong inclination towards alcohol.

Horror Trivia

The Craven inspired the character of Freddy Krueger from various incidents of child life. The name came from an annoying classmate, Fred Krueger who foberize him while the tattered clothes of Freddy the was inspired by a beggar who persistently looked at Wes little through his window when he was just 10 years old.

Judging as fair becomes "A Nightmare On Elm Street" and away from sentimentality, the movie clearly isn't perfect. Clearly has flaws, clearly there was room for improvement and better solutions than some simplistic offered by Craven, mainly in the field of the script. Some naive ideas such as the "baby" traps that puts the Nancy in Freddy's inside show outside climate and asobares for the current data. The glitches but these do not show enough to reduce the value of the film since its nature is such that it turns into minutiae. In the first half of the film is incredibly atmospheric and it helps the dark, wonderful music by Charles Bernstein.

In general the "A Nightmare On Elm Street" managed to give supernatural connotation in the category of slashers in a way that only can be described as successful. Craven's ideas with which enriches the metaphysical/dreamy image of film left in memory for long and established as a classic in the minds of friends of terror. Scenes like that girl leykontymena playing the famous song say cord with "rules" versus precaution in Freddy constitute another marvelous example of inventiveness of Craven. In each case the "A Nightmare On Elm Street" is a historical horror film that will not lose its importance many years though pass after is deeply rooted as a "classic" in the minds of the world. And I won with the undeniable value of!
