A Nightmare on Elm Street

Unspooled #300.8 November 3, 2021

Amy & Paul drift off into 1984’s Wes Craven sleeper slasher film A Nightmare On Elm Street! They give qualified praise to Johnny Depp’s first-ever screen role, appreciate Craven’s meta-sequel New Nightmare, and rank Freddy Krueger within the pantheon of slasher icons. Plus: Freddy appeared in a rap video?
