It’s October and that means Halloween is almost here. In honor of my favorite holiday of the year I give to you my top thirty horror movies. Now some of these films might be on every list, but some might not. I might even have a film or two that you have never heard of. Just remember this is my top thirty. In other words these films made me cringe or just sent chills up my spine. So with no further ado here is my list.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Directed by: Wes Craven
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you. The boogey man lives and he wants to kill you. In my opinion Wes Craven’s piece de resistance is A Nightmare on Elm Street. Wes Craven took the idea of dreaming and made all of our nightmares come true. Robert Englund is perfect for the role as the murderous and terrifying Freddy. I can’t imagine anyone else for it. His humor plus his uncanny ability to creep you out at the same time is just unique and flawless.
High school students on Elm Street are being haunted in their dreams. Freddy has the upper advantage since we all have to sleep sometime. Until he meets his match in a high school student named Nancy. When Nancy’s friends end up brutally dying (in their sleep of course) she vows to not sleep again and catch this crazy sadistic killer. Of course she will have to visit dreamworld to find him.
This is a great, fun movie to invite some people over and just watch and have a good time. A Nightmare on Elm Street has a great story-line that will spin off eight more movies in the franchise, and keep people from sleeping ever again. How can you go wrong? You have a horribly disfigured boogeyman with a glove made of extremely sharp razors. With a fair amount of blood and some great one-liners, this movie has it all and I guarantee you will love it too.
