Wes craven is a genius to start off with and this film shows why he is.
Instead of doing what friday the 13th did and simply copy the character of Michael Myers and simply change his appearance and his life background, Wes craven wanted to create a new even scarier monster that would haunt us for ever and by god did he succeed.
As for the film the story is fantastic and more importantly original. The cast with Robert Englund as Freddy was a match made in Heaven. One of the most important aspects of this film is Freddy seemed to be the first horror monster to have a laugh and to make jokes and BE FUNNY.
This film will forever live on in our dreams and will always be there to haunt people.
