Nightmare on Elm Street (Movies)

"So how was last night? Any bad dreams?"
"If I say no, do I have to keep coming back here? I'm still non-stop Nightmare on Elm Street."

Nightmare on Elm Street was one of the multitude of teen slasher movies that flooded cinemas in the 1980s, sort of the very creepy grandfather of films like I Know What You Did Last Summer — you know, the one you'd rather keep in the basement and never let close to the neighbour's pets. It featured Johnny Depp in his very first starring role, thus being an early example of hip young TV actors trying to expand their acting horizons through horror movie roles. Which in his case worked surprisingly well, actually.
