A Nightmare On Elm Street
Another Wes Craven movie that exceeded the expectations of many was A Nightmare on Elm Street, a 1984 slasher movie that left viewers fearing sleep for weeks after watching. The movie introduced us to the terrifying Freddie Krueger, who we’ve seen referenced multiple times in pop culture since its initial release. It was made for less than $2 million and made $25.5 million at the box office. To date, the franchise has nine movies under its belt and has grossed $457 million in total since 1984.
