Debut film for everyone's favourite psychotic slasher, Freddy Krueger. When American teenager Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suffer from nightmares, she discovers that many of her friends are having similarly disturbed nights' sleep. Their dreams are haunted by the hideously scarred former child murderer Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) who, it soon transpires, has the power to kill them in their sleep. Freddy is out to exact his revenge on the children of those who burned him alive in retribution for his crimes. The only way to avoid Freddy's reprisals is to avoid sleep, but Nancy knows that she can't stay awake for ever.

A cult horror that is still popular today
Like Halloween they diluted the original with endless sequels. Taken in isolation, this movie is a cracking piece of originality. Even the viewer isn't sure when reality stops and dreaming starts, and isn't that the same for all of us? That's what makes it so scary. For debuting on such a successful film Depp must have thanked his lucky stars.
