TEEN HORROR 09 • A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

The one where The Final Girls meet Freddy.

The monstrous spirit of a slain child murderer Freddy Krueger seeks revenge by invading the dreams of teenagers whose parents were responsible for his untimely death.

Joining us this week is film critic, author and scholar Dr. Sorcha Ní Fhlainn to go into the gore, dream logic of Wes Craven's masterpiece, how Nancy stands out from other final girls and what exactly makes Freddy Krueger so terrifying.

Produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya


Music: "Slasher" by Karl Casey @ White Bat Audio
