Classic Trailer: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

With the Platinum Dunes remake having been released just a few weeks ago, I've heard a lot of people say that they either haven't seen the original "Nightmare on Elm Street" in a long time or, *gasp*, they have never seen it at all!

Scandal! Come on people... this one is worthy of at LEAST two viewing a year. Should be federally mandated, actually.

And while it wasn't quite sacrelige, I do think the remake lost a bit of the charm and gut-punch scares of the original. And sure-- perhaps the reason the original stands out so much for me is that I was just a kid when I saw it, but you know what-- I just bought the original on blu-ray and I'm happy announce it totally holds up and still made me poop my pants. Not sure why I'm happy to announce that last part... but I digress.

Check out the trailer for the original. It's truly a classic horror film and a cool trailer to boot.

P.S.-- I like Jackie Earle Haley and all, but who are we kidding? Robert Englund is Freddy. End of story.
