Nightmare on Elm street

Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is based on a real story.
Director Craven revealed that the inspiration for the iconic slasher film came from a story he read from the LA Times: a boy was having disturbing nightmares and refused to sleep for days out of fear. The same night he succumbed to exhaustion, he died in his sleep, but not before screaming for help in the middle of the night because of his nightmares.

It’s not that I dislike moths…I HATE moths..evil spawns of Satan..  and wasps.. I hate wasps. Spiteful nasty things that sting you for fun. Bash them with a rolled up newspaper.
I HATE ironing as well. Curse irons, Threw it away.

From what I read, so many stories are based on an actual story. You would be surprised at all the stories out there that are like that! It's quite fascinating & cool to see the origins.

That is so sad.
