If Nancy Doesn't Wake Up Screaming, She Won't Wake Up At All!
Teenagers in a small town are dropping like flies, apparently in the grip of mass hysteria causing their suicides. A cop's daughter, Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) traces the cause to child molester Fred Krueger (Robert Englund), who was burned alive by angry parents many years before. Krueger has now come back in the dreams of his killers' children, claiming their lives as his revenge. Nancy and her boyfriend, Glen (Johnny Depp), must devise a plan to lure the monster out of the realm of nightmares and into the real world...

One of the best old-school horror movies out there. In league with "Helloween" or "Evil Dead". Only the ending is done a little cheaply, meaning that the special effects are very obvious and can be spotted easily as such.

¿Quien no conoce a Fredy? es otro de los grandes personajes del terror.Un terror psicologico con gore incluido pero esta vez aveces no se sabe si estan soñando o estan despierto los protagonistas, es un clasico del terror.
