Revenge of the License: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Michael Crisman writes, "I don’t know about the rest of you, but the original Nightmare on Elm Street terrified me the first time I saw it, and with good reason.

And if I’m terrified Norman Bates will attack me in the shower? Boom! I’m a hippie with no running water, so come at me bro! But how do you not sleep? Sleeping is like coming down with the flu or popping boners at inopportune moments–you can take steps to prevent it, but sooner or later it’s going to happen.
