Never Sleep Again Twitterfeed: Freddy Shows Up on Friday the 13th!

How fitting. Here we are, Jason’s birthday, and who comes in to do his Never Sleep Again interview? None other than Freddy Krueger himself, the great Robert Englund!

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy officially began lensing on August 22, 2009, in and around Los Angeles. Starring and narrated by Heather Langenkamp, star of the 1984 classic A Nightmare on Elm Street and two of its sequels (1986’s Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and 1994’s Wes Craven’s New Nightmare), this thrilling 90-minute retrospective promises to be the definitive look at the making of the iconic horror series and the enduring legacy of its wise-cracking, razor-gloved villain: the indefatigable “bastard son of a hundred maniacs” known as Freddy Krueger.

Directed by Daniel Farrands and Andrew Kasch, this comprehensive look at the Nightmare films is written and produced by Thommy Hutson with Heather Langenkamp serving as executive-producer, Buz “Danger” Wallick serving as director of photography, and Bill Philputt and myself, Uncle Creepy, serving as associate producers.

For more on this project check out the official Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy website and the official Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy MySpace page.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Mr. Gray

    It just occurred to me that if they’re really going to try to get the Halloween movies back on track, they should cast Englund as Loomis.

    Heck, he already kind of played him in Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.

    So how long is this going to be because you have enough talent and information to fit a 2 and a half hour movie.

    • Sirand

      It could very wellbe 4 hours when we’re done. Don’t wanna short change anything or anyone.

  • FilmCritic3000

    This is, from all I’ve gleaned, shaping up to be the ultimate, *the* definitive retrospective on the “Nightmare” franchise and just the fact that it’s being put together by members of our own little dysfunctional family warms the cockles of my heart.

  • The Butcher

    And the crowd goes wild! One big fish down, two more to go?

    As Buz likes to say “Flawless victory!”

    Great going guys!
