Great Movie Moments – A Nightmare on Elm Street: Come to Freddy!
Sometimes, a movie has a scene in it that transcends the movie itself. A Nightmare on Elm Street has several of those scenes, but here’s my favorite. “Come to Freddy!” is one of those Great Movie Moments.
I think this scene as disturbing and scary as it gets when it comes to this franchise. Seeing Kris in the body bag brings a reality to her death that otherwise wouldn’t have been felt. Sure, there are funerals in these movies, but you rarely get to see anyone dead for more than a few seconds. This, coupled with the amazing lighting in Freddy’s boiler room and the great performances from the cast are what made this more than a little indie film and instead a worldwide phenomenon.
Sure, there’s the spinning room and the final confrontation with Freddy, but for me, nothing beats “Come to Freddy!” It’s a work of horrific genius!
