One of the best and most important horror films ever done
on 9 September 2015
An excellent blu ray transfer to celebrate this milestone in horror cinema. A film that is still scary after 30 years, thanks to the brilliant genius of Wes Craven, who not only created a whole new saga (that still remains unique with few other films trying to imitate it) but also tried new storytelling and visual solutions. Nightmare is a film that entertain and disturbs, introducing a brilliant new actor like John Englund (and a young Johnny Depp), and briliantly exploit the idea of confusion between reality and dream producing an infinite series of other films which will use that potential to create totally genre-free films, where everything can happen, since nothing must be bound to realism or to a single genre (see chapter 4 and 5).
So NIghtmare is not just the best film of the saga and a totally mesmerizing film, but a real groundbreaking experiment
