This film, even by today's standard, is an awe inspiring epic horror film that changed the horror genre forever. This movie is one of the reasons why slasher films have become so popular. Because it gives you what you want, solid acting, a great plot, the ability to make people scared, a bad guy who you can't really figure out on what he is going to do next, and you don't know where the plot is going to end up. What could be better for a horror film?
This film is one of the last truely scary horror films that have been made in the past 30 years. It is a very original film and the low-budget makes the atmosphere of the film just a little bit more frightening because it makes the movie seem just that much more real. Most of the characters are intellegant enough to actually become aware that they control their own dreams and therefore their destiny in their own dreams, although a momentary lap in this thought got the supporting characters killed. Which states that the characters are strong characters that just couldn't hang on until the end to defeat Freddy. Our main character was the only one strong enough to "survive" the onslaught of freddy's attacks for revenge. Because of that, this film is brillantly directed and written by one of the master's of horror, Wes Craven. A must see film for everyone at anytime in the year, not just during halloween season.
VIDEO IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. TAPE PLAYS LIKE NEW. BOX HAS A BIT OF WEAR BUT OVERALL IS CLEAN AND IN TACT.
