The first time Depp appeared on the big screen during the 80’s he did not wear ostentatious costumes like those of Jack Sparrow or Edward Scissorhands, but it was his initiation into horror films.

If we hear the name Johnny Depp today, many images of his best roles come to our mind. We can especially bet that you think of Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean or even Sweeney Todd from The Devil Bib of Fleet Street or even Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; but Before personifying these legendary film characters, the actor appeared for the first time on the big screen at the age of 21 in one of the best horror films of the 80s.

Without using makeup that would give his skin an extremely white color as in Young Scissorhands, Depp gave life to one of the main characters of Wes Craven’s unforgettable film that made us fear closing our eyes and dreaming of a man with burns on the body and blades on the fingers. In 1984 Johnny Depp started in movies as Glen Lantz in Nightmare on hell street and without any kind of ostentatious attire, he looks almost unrecognizable.

In this horror story that traumatized an entire generation, a group of young people from a small town begin to have regular nightmares in which they are chased by a man. Some of them begin to be murdered in their sleep by this character who turns out to be Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), someone tormented by his past who seeks revenge from the world of dreams.

In addition to giving us new night nightmares and a creepy song sung by girls jumping rope, this film was the beginning of Depp’s career, who later began to collaborate on gothic films with Tim Burton and other filmmakers. Likewise, the 80’s film gave way to many sequels to the story of the nightmare killer, reaching a crossover with Friday the 13th called Freddy vs Jason.

In addition to the renowned Alice in Wonderland actor, the film stars Heather Langenkamp, ​​John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Amanda Wyss and many others. If with this cloudy and rainy weather you want to see Depp’s acting debut in the horror genre again, you can find Nightmare on hell street available in the catalog Max.
