’80s Movies: A Guide to What’s Wrong with Your Parents podcast looks how ’80s films affected a generation.

It’s the 35th Anniversary of A Nightmare Before Elm Street, a movie that terrified teens in 1984 but … now? In our latest episode of the “’80s Movies: A Guide to What’s Wrong with Your Parents” podcast, co-hosts Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Y, examine the film through today’s lens. They examine how the Wes Craven original created something new to be afraid of while holding on to some of the tropes that would mess with the minds of Gen X’ers for years to come.
