This movie is not appropriate, no matter what the kids try to tell you. I was 15/16 when I watched this and I was scared out of my mind. This graphics suck, so it did take the experience down a bit, but the idea of dying in a dream is scary enough. Freddy is hideous and is very much one of the ultimate horror movie villains. I am pretty good with horror movies, but this one was definitely scary. I would not suggest this movie for anyone who has even the slightest of hard times telling what is real and what is fake. There is lots of blood, and while it is not as gory as its sequels/remake, it is enough to make a lot of people squeamish. Long version short, I had nightmares for about a week after watching it and I have watched a lot of horror movies.
