THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1989)
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 95 min, USA/UK/Hungary, Dir: Dwight H. Little

“Only love and music are forever.” NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET star Robert Englund dons the phantom’s mask for a big-screen adaptation of the famed Gaston Leroux novel that hews closer to the horror of the original than the romance of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. An accident during an audition transports 1980s Juilliard student Christine Day (Jill Schoelen) back to 19th-century London, where a horribly disfigured antihero who haunts an aging opera house becomes infatuated with her. With Alex Hyde-White, Bill Nighy and Molly Shannon (in her film debut).


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE
1985, Warner Bros., 87 min, USA, Dir: Jack Sholder

“You got the body, I got the brains.” As the new kid on the block, Jesse (Mark Patton) is just trying to fit in. But when his family unknowingly moves into the murder house on Elm Street, something tries to fit inside of him - Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is back and planning to use Jesse as his vessel out of dreamland into the real world.


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
1984, Warner Bros., 92 min, USA, Dir: Wes Craven

Wes Craven created one of his most famous movie milestones with this supremely entertaining horror opus, melding influences from Polanski to Buñuel to Argento to achieve a bizarrely subversive box office hit. NIGHTMARE… went on to become a certifiable goldmine of a franchise and ushered in surrealism to the masses. Dead child-killer/dream demon Freddie Krueger (Robert Englund) proves a formidable homicidal anti-hero but finds a more than worthy opponent in feisty, brainy teen Heather Langenkamp. With Johnny Depp, John Saxon and Ronee Blakely.
