A Nightmare on Elm Street 0.0 stars

Nightmare on Elm Street movie poster

Intriguing idea: a group of American teenagers share the same dream, from which they wake up dead. Why and how this is happening, especially at this particular time, remains obscure to the end, and the mention of Balinese "dream skills" is no help. (And speaking of obscurity, the photography throughout is about two shades too dark.) The idea is further devalued by the deliberate cheating of the transitions from waking to dream, and by too many slobbering, cackling pursuits. With John Saxon and Ronee Blakley; directed by Wes Craven. 1984.

Duncan Shepherd
