When we first got started with our documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, there was only a single goal in mind: to create the best and most comprehensive companion piece to one of the greatest horror film franchises the world has ever know. Everything down to the last detail had to be perfect so who better to go to for our cover art than A Nightmare on Elm Street poster artist Joseph Peak?
Below you’ll find Peak’s first original bit of Elm Street art in decades, and words alone cannot describe how honored we are to have him aboard.
Exploring the creation of Freddy Krueger and the impact the series continues to have on the horror genre and pop culture, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy is produced by Daniel Farrands and Thommy Hutson, written by Thommy Hutson, and directed by Daniel Farrands and Andrew Kasch. Actress and narrator of the documentary Heather Langenkamp, Camelot Chairman Robert Atwell, and Camelot President of Distribution Jamie Thompson serve as Executive Producers.
“Freddy Krueger is a household horror name, and with the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot produced by Michael Bay,” Thompson stated, “this is the perfect time to release a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a horror staple that many will be intrigued to see.”
Never Sleep Again steps out from behind the thrilling nightmare and explores the creation of Freddy Krueger and what it takes to bring the worst nightmares to life. There are over 100 interviews from cast and crew, including directors Wes Craven, Renny Harlin, and Ronny Yu, as well as talent John Saxon, rock star Alice Cooper, Monica Keena (Freddy vs Jason), and Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.
The documentary is currently in post-production and is to be released in the US this spring.
And don’t forget to see the gang live during our appearance at the Creation Weekend of Horrors, May 21-23, 2010.
