10 Minute Video Analyses A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
New video looks at Wes Craven's iconic slasher.







If you're a horror fan, you've no doubt groaned at the recent spate of online thinkpieces that have grouped a bunch of horror movies from the last year or so under the 'post-horror' banner, arguing that the genre has finally come of age and begun to explore philosophical and intellectual ideas.

Anyone familiar with horror cinema knows this is nothing new, and that the genre has explored deep themes since the silent era.

A new video essay by Renegade Cut begins with a takedown of such thinkpieces, before exploring the themes of Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street, a movie that would no doubt find itself labelled 'post-horror' in some quarters were it released today.
