A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, 1984, Warner Bros., 92 min. Director Wes Craven created one of his most famous movie milestones with this supremely entertaining horror opus. Dead child-killer/dream demon Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) proves a formidable homicidal antihero but finds a more than worthy opponent in feisty, brainy teen Heather Langenkamp. With Johnny Depp. Check website for guest update.
