With the Halloween season upon us, we thought we’d take a look as to whether or not you can stream any of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies on Netflix around the globe.
The franchise for A Nightmare on Elm Street is quite substantial. The movie series alone has nine movies stretching from the first in 1984 to the most recent released in 2010. It’s also worth noting a new movie is reportedly in development for the franchise too as well as a video game, so it’s a very good time to be a fan of Nightmare on Elm Street.
The famed horror series was created by the genius that is Wes Craven. It’s a slasher series focussing on the fictional character Freddy Krueger. It’s also introduced us to Jason too as well as some other popular horror icons.
That brings us to Netflix streaming. For those with a good memory, you’ll recall that some of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies have been streaming on Netflix in the past. This is not the case now and will probably continue being the case until next year rolls around. You see, Netflix buys up the license to stream the movie and usually, that excludes the month of October, presumably because it costs too much.
Let’s now take a look around the world to see if any of the movies are streaming. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
