A Nightmare on Elm Street

Friday, July 14 - Saturday, July 15, 2023

Presented as part of our new series: The Red Eye.

Wes Craven’s undeniable classic was the beginning of a seven-sequel franchise. Freddy Kreuger is perhaps the king of franchise horror villains, creeping his way into dreams and killing off terrified teens in all kinds of gnarly and unforgettable ways. While the kills escalated in scope throughout the series, the original NIGHTMARE terrifies with its simplicity and visual creativity. With Nancy as his opponent, gallons of blood will be shed and Freddy will be your God now.
