    Wes Craven's original is a mixed bag. There's some really scary stuff here. But there are also effects scenes that are so ostentatious they take you out of the film and fracture the illusion. Further undone by a finale that features one of the most laughably cheap special effects you'll ever see.

    Truly one of the best 80s horror movies. While the special effects may not hold up completely, the film is still frightening enough to keep you awake at night. Robert Englund is at his creepy best in this film.

    Now we're remaking movies that weren't any good in the first place! I'd give it a zero if I could!
