TV show description:
This anthology series, hosted by Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) and based on the Nightmare on Elm Street films, features the nightmares of the residents of Springwood, Ohio.
The first episode serves as a prequel to the popular Nightmare on Elm Street series and tells the story of Freddy’s acquittal of child murder charges due to the fact the officer in his case didn’t read Freddy his rights. The news leaves Lieutenant Tim Blocker (Ian Patrick Williams) shocked and he feels he should have shot Freddy when he had the chance.
