A Nightmare on Elm Street shares many of the same horror tropes as Friday the 13th, but has its own surreal twist: the killer Freddie attacks victims in their dreams. Like every classic thriller, this 1984 slasher flick features naïve characters that seemingly refuse to heed common sense. Warning: they also ignore the perfectly reasonable advice that viewers scream at the screens so save your breath for the scares. Junior Jordan Rogers says, “Once Halloween season rolls around, A Nightmare on Elm Street always seems to find its way on my TV set.”
