A Nightmare on Elm Street

First show: September 04
Rest In Peace Wes Craven, (even if you rarely let any of YOUR OWN characters do so!) The Roxie pays our respect to the Maestro of terror with screenings of one of his history-making horror masterpieces.

glovebathIn Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams — which, in turn, kills them in reality. After investigating the phenomenon, Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends’ parents may be the key to unraveling the mystery, but can Nancy and her boyfriend Glen (Johnny Depp) solve the puzzle before it’s too late?

Directed by Wes Craven. 1984. 91 min. DCP.
