One of the most rewarding feelings in the world came for the makers of Never Sleep Again this past weekend when the entire crew gathered with many stars from the franchise to celebrate the mega-documentary’s release. The faces of the fans who showed up totally excited and happy to get their claws into some real Freddy Krueger mayhem after their experiences with the remake made every single *ahem* sleepless night helping to put this thing together all the more worth it.
The signing took place at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, and as you can see by the footage below, it was not only one hell of an event … It was one hell of a good time, too!
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.
