This is a horror that you can’t run from because running would make you tired and the last thing you want to be is tired!
Note: This is the 1984 version!
For me, there were too many lulls in it. I assume these scenes were meant to further the story and create tension, but they failed for me. It’s a unique, (and terrifying), plot. I felt they didn’t use it to its full potential though. All the same, I would’ve liked more horror. It isn’t scary enough for me!
Our villain is in your face. He’s not a fan of skulking around in the shadows. Robert Englund is the one true Freddy!
Johnny Depp who plays Glen, (I would’ve never have recognized Depp if I hadn’t known he was in it), doesn’t have much screen time, but, in the scenes he’s in, you can tell that he’s going to be an amazing actor.
I felt as if a lot of the characters look the other way for the sake of the film. Some of their actions are just unbelievable. I’m very interested to watch the 2010 remake though.
To sump, failed to raise to the occasion, not scary enough, great plot and villain
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? No
