Speaking of which, the DVD is shaping up to be pretty sweet! On it Dread Central alumnus Sean Clark will be unveiling an all-new episode of “Horror’s Hallowed Grounds” that will take fans on an exclusive tour of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street locations. That’s not all, though! The special two-disc release will contain over four hours of “Freddified” extras. Yep, there’s gonna be a lot to look forward to!
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 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.
