Graveyard Shift

The Scariest Dream Sequences In The 'Nightmare On Elm Street' Films

List Rules
Vote up the Freddy nightmares that keep you up at night.

In the fall of 1984, Wes Craven gifted us with A Nightmare on Elm Street. Idyllic, all-American neighborhoods and run-of-the-mill teenagers are harshly contrasted by Freddy Krueger, a supernatural entity with the power to enter your dreams.

Freddy was a neighborhood monster who preyed on children. After evading a jail sentence, Freddy was burned up by the parents of Elm Street. Freed of his mortal body and given the ability to enter the minds of unsuspecting sleepers, Freddy targets the offspring of those who sealed his fate by manipulating their dreams. As he slays the sleeping teens in their dreams, they perish in real life. 

After eight movies, there have been a lot of terrifying dreams. Here are a few that have kept fans up at night.
