With the Platinum Dunes version of the Wes Craven classic A Nightmare on Elm Street slashing its way through theaters this weekend, it is pretty much a given that fans of the franchise will either be looking for more Freddy goodness to sink their claws into or maybe something to wash that weird remake taste out of their mouths. Either way, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy is just what the doctor ordered, and we have an exclusive clip for you to help kick off your nightmarish weekend!
For the uninitiated, 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, Lito Velasco serving as co-producer, Annette Slomka serving as line producer/assistant editor, and Bill Philputt and myself, Uncle Creepy, serving as associate producers.
