"cashed in on the Halloween craze, but turned out to be different in many ways and was one of the few slashers to make a name for itself and spawn many sequels. The original holds up as the best with plenty of gore and scary scenes. Definitely a classic."
"Re-booting slasher in the 90s, this smart, witty, funny, dramatic, suspensful, and scary movie has become an instant classic. Very smartly written by Kevin Williamson and directed by the master Wes Craven, this has become one of the most popular within the genre."
"A forgotten gem. This movie is so great in many ways, though you can't take it serious becasue it is just so ridiculous at the same time. It's a spanish made film and is a fantastic slasher. It's got full on violence, nudity, and very gory death scenes. It's also unintentionally funny. This is truly a grindhouse classic and is totally worth buying."
"Slasher film gone supernatural, Wes Craven created one of the most iconic killers in horror history. Before Freddy became funny, he was a ruthless killer who killed teens in their sleep as revenge from their parents burning and killing him."
"THE Slasher before Halloween came out, this movie is very dark and disturbing, in my opinion because it shows people dying on the most wonderful time of the year. It is the slasher before the craze came about in the 80s, and definitely a must see. Avoid the remake (of course)"
