Wes Craven really knows how to produce and direct a terrific horror movie. Most horror fans will love this.

I remember watching this when I was little and having nightmares for weeks afterward and not being able to walk around home in the dark. Now, nearly 20 years later, I am laughing about it!

I was a teenage Freddy fan, but similar to my early devotion to Guns and Roses I find this movie does not age well.
