Freddy Week's #30YearsOfNightmare Recap

It's A Nightmare On Elm Street Week on Chiller! I'm not asking why or how, I'm just enjoying Freddy in all his edited-for-television glory because I can. I make no apologies for this mild obsession. I love each film on different levels and in varying ways. I've been lucky enough to tap into and drop kick my muse with some care on Elm Street's last brats here and on other respectable online film platforms.

Below is a link-heavy recap of what you can discover about Freddy mania and the franchise as a whole, including some non-personally authored sources I've really enjoyed reading. Whether you're a fan or not, I think hope you can find some traces of consideration for how Freddy has intellectually affected generations of horror fans.
