A Nightmare on Elm Street - the first of the series. I can't imagine how many people were probably afraid to fall asleep after watching this movie! Bonus points for getting to see a young Johnny Depp in it!
Directed by George Miller. With Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer. Three single women in a picturesque village have their wishes granted - at a cost - when a mysterious and flamboyant man arrives in their lives.
