When the police ignore her explanation, she herself must confront the killer in his shadowy realm…
From modern horror master Wes Craven comes a timeless shocker that remains the standard bearer for terror. Featuring Johnny Depp in his first starring role, this horror classic gave birth to one of the most infamous undead villains in cinematic history: Freddy Krueger.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge
Five years have passed since Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) was sent howling back to hell.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
