what going on?
A Nightmare on Elm Street is a 1984 American slasher film written and directed by Wes Craven, and produced by Robert Shaye. It stars Heather Langenkamp, John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Amanda Wyss, Jsu Garcia, Robert Englund and Johnny Depp in his film debut. The plot focuses on four teenagers who are invaded and killed in their dreams, thus killed in reality, by a burnt killer with a bladed glove. The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago.
Tina Gray awakens from a nightmare wherein she is attacked by a disfigured man wearing a blade-fixed glove, and her mother points out four mysterious slashes on her nightgown. The following morning, she is consoled by her best friend, Nancy Thompson, and Nancy’s boyfriend, Glen Lantz.
The two stay at Tina’s house following her mother going out of town, but their sleepover is interrupted by Tina’s boyfriend, Rod Lane. When Tina falls asleep, she is chased by the man. Rod awakens to Tina’s thrashing, and witnesses her being dragged and fatally slashed by an unseen force. He flees as Nancy and Glen awaken to find a bloodied Tina dead.
The next day, Rod is arrested by Nancy’s father, Lieutenant Don Thompson, despite his pleas of innocence. At school, Nancy falls asleep in class and the man, calling himself Freddy Krueger, chases her to the boiler room. When cornered, she burns her arm on a pipe and awakens, where she notices the burn mark on her arm. At home, Nancy falls asleep in the bathtub and is nearly drowned by Freddy. She goes to Rod at the police station, who tells her about what happened to Tina, and Nancy believes that Freddy is responsible for Tina’s death.
