This spine-chilling tale of horror delves into the terrifying sequence of events that unfold in the life of Tina Gray, Nancy Thomson and those around them. In the early 1980's, a psychopath named Freddy Krueger, infamously known as the Springwood Slasher, murdered several children with a glove outfitted with straight razor blades attached to the fingers. When a foolish decision by a judge sets him free, Krueger is burned alive in the boiler room where he worked, by an angry mob of the parents whose children he terrorized and murdered.
Years after his death, the children whose parents were responsible for Krueger's death - including Nancy Thompson, daughter of the police officer who arrested Krueger - are experiencing terrifying nightmares involving a burned man wearing a glove with razor blades on the fingers. The ghost of Freddy Krueger is haunting their dreams, and when Nancy's best friend Tina dies in her sleep violently during a dream confrontation with Krueger, Nancy realizes she must find a way to stop the evil psychopath's reign of terror - or never sleep again...
