Pant-Soiling Scenes #9: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
The first slasher film I ever saw was A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 when I was about 11. Brown pants and bad dreams. I flat out refused to watch any other Freddy films until I was 19. Oddly, it was my second viewing of the original Elm Street that creeped the hell outta me.

He’s like…coming through the wall for Nancy!! It’s so horrible! I want to cry.
