A Nightmare on Elm Street

Synopsis: Death stalks the dreams of several young adults to claim its revenge on the killing of Freddy Kruger. Chased and chastised by this finger-bladed demon, it is the awakening of old memories and the denials of a past of retribution that spurns this hellish vision of a dreamlike state and turns death into a nightmare reality.

But I don't know how I'm in that picture.

I didn't meet Dean until high school.

Come on.

-Dean said something right before he died.

-Oh, please don't.

He said, "You're not real."

He kept repeating it over and over again.

Do you have any idea what that means?

No. I don't.

Think about it. What would it mean? Dean was on a load of medication when--

Jesse.

When it happened, it was like

somebody was making him do it...

...but there was nobody there.

Jesse, you have to believe me.

Kris, it was late and you were scared.
