For me, A Nightmare on Elm Street is a touching drama about a boy who dies as a virgin. The whole movie Johnny Depp just tries to get laid, and even plays Nancys little crazy games that he doesn't lose the chance. And then he dies.

And this is another indicator why the remake sucks: The role of Nancys girlfriend is a drug addicted wimp who really doesn't cares about anything.

I don't know why I did, but I suddenly felt that I had to write this down.

Good point... the virgin in Stephen King's IT dies a virgin too.

Holy shit, you're old, nay, seasoned. lol

The original ANOES is an undisputed classic, but not for a second, do I buy the argument that it's darker than Dream Warriors.

I never made such an argument, and I agree with you part 3 is darker. And yes, I'm closin' in on 40 in a few years... crazy.

I'm not sure I'd call Dream Warriors darker. Than the first. I think Part 2 is easily the darkest of the franchise. One and DW would be neck and neck I think.

Technically, having ADD or whatever the hell he had, he shouldn't be considered an addict.

Pt. 2 has two or three of the series darkest scenes, but as a whole, it's not even close to the darkest of the series. Most of the movie is cornier than a cornfest.

Considering the films get lighter/sillier as they go, I think two is definitely the darkest of the series, outside of the original. By the time we get to Freddy's Dead we get this...



I don't see how anyone can make an argument that the later sequels are darker than the first two.

Agreed 100%.

It's been a while since I've viewed the entire series for comparative purposes, but I recall Dream Warriors and Dream Child to be the darkest (not best) entries in the series. DW touched on the Amanda Krueger's backstory and DC delved into that madness. Honestly, I think the humor in this series has been overt since day one, and the first two entries have unintential humor (such as Freddy's Homer Simpson like fall down the stairs in Pt. 1) that vitiates the horror moreso than the hokey one-liners in the latter entries.
