A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Nightmare - Murderous Dreams
USA 1984 R: Wes Craven
D: John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp. 92 min. Blu-ray. OF
Several teenagers discover that they have nightmares of the same figure, the scar-faced killer Freddy Krueger, an evil spirit that invades their dreams and has the power to kill them outside the dream. Although it was an original screenplay by Wes Craven, the small town milieu and the precisely drawn social world of the teenagers are strongly reminiscent of Stephen King. The achiever happening of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET led to six film, a receiver ordering and a creation.

INFERNO Horror infernal
Italy 1980 R: Dario Argento
D: Leigh McCloskey, Irene Miracle, Sacha Pitoëff. 107 min. Blu-ray. OF
Susy Bannion, a young US-American, comes to Munich to attend a dance academy and is involved in a murder case on the very first evening. With SUSPIRIA, Dario Argento finally created a new form of horror cinema: garish and synthetic in its effects, yet filled with a strong desire for style and great visual elegance. Logic and probability, on the other hand, must take a back seat, which lends this film a decidedly surreal quality.
