Well for me I only like the original Nightmare on Elm Street and Part 4. The original stands alone though. I'm biased to Part 4 because I like the 80s feel of that one. To rank the three, Freddy vs Jason would be third though. I want to watch the Nightmare on Elm Street TV show. I remember seeing a few of those when I was a kid. I recall Freddy talks a lot in that one since the setup is similar to the monster shows with the Creep and other monsters giving narration before episodes. But Freddy became a different character once he became popular after the success of the original movie.
