"The Robots Are Due on Elm St!" week concludes with director Dan Ireland introducing Wes Craven's seminal franchise starter "A Nightmare on Elm Street."

Wes Craven started a wildly popular franchise with this offbeat chiller which pretty much became a license to print money. It made back its $1.8 million budget in the first week and influenced the horror genre for decades. Robert Englund's child-killer Freddy Kruger, named after a school bully in Craven's past, went on to slash his way through 8 sequels and a tv series, but not the 2010 reboot (in which the role was played by Jackie Earle Haley, who had a supporting role in the original).
