A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET with live commentary


Sunday, March 29 - 7:30 PM

Live Commentary! Wes Craven In-Person!

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, melding influences from Polanski to Bunuel to Argento to achieve a bizarrely subversive box office hit. NIGHTMARE… went on to become a certifiable gold mine of a franchise and ushered in surrealism to the masses. 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, John Saxon, Ronee Blakely. Director Wes Craven will comment on the making of this classic film while it is screening.
