A Nightmare On Elm Street
Dean Russell (Kellan Lutz) goes to the Springwood Diner with his girlfriend, Kris Fowles (Katie Cassidy),
falls asleep at the table and meets a man covered in burn scars,
wearing a red and green sweater and a clawed glove on his hand. The
burned man cuts Dean's throat in the dream, but in reality it appears
that Dean is cutting his own throat as his friend, waitress Nancy Holbrook (Rooney Mara),
looks on with Kris. At Dean's funeral, Kris sees a photograph of her
and Dean as children, but cannot recall ever knowing Dean before high
school. Kris begins to dream about the burned man herself and refuses to
go to sleep for fear that she will die in her dreams. Jesse Braun (Thomas Dekker),
Kris's ex-boyfriend, shows up at her house to keep her company while
she sleeps, but Kris meets the burned man in her dreams and is murdered.
Covered in blood, Jesse runs to Nancy's house to try to explain what
happened and he learns that Nancy has been having dreams about the same
man: Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley).
