No matter the special effects, I will always love this film. Freddy is iconic from the moment you see him. The fact that he is powerful within the dreamworld gives him a chilling, supernatural vibe. Perfectly original.

Great villain, smart plot and very investing. Only the score is letting it down from being a great movie. Just a dated 80s score from a video game packed with synthesisers and drumming. A better score would’ve made the film as a whole more effective.
