Video: Original Nightmare on Elm Street trailer

Excerpt from FIRST AMONG THE FRANCHISE: A Nightmare on Elm Street

When filmmaker Wes Craven conceived of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET the core idea was unlike virtually anything that had come before. While a dead killer returning from the grave to get revenge on those that put him there was a story that people had heard dozens and dozens of times, it was Craven’s idea that his murderous creation, Freddy Krueger, would use nightmares to come back to life and hunt his victims that made for such a unique and horrifying tale.
