Happy Halloween! I was the perfect age when the first Nightmare on Elm Street hit theaters. I'm not a huge horror fan these days but back in high school there was nothing more fun than popping in a scary flick with a bunch of friends and junk food. This franchise was especially fun because of the creative ways they used dreamscapes and Robert Englund's darkly humorous performances. I think my favorite outing was the third one - I was a big fan of Kincaid. I haven't seen the updated version featuring Jackie Earle Haley - hopefully they kept in the laughs as well as the kills.
