Never Sleep Again Coming to Print!Can’t get enough A Nightmare on Elm Street? You’re not alone! A few years ago I had the good fortune to work on what has become the definitive horror documentary, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy. Now the dark journey is about to continue in print form from one of its co-creators.

From the Press Release
Thommy Hutson, writer and producer of definitive genre docs such as Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy and Inside Story: Scream and producer of More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead and Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th, is excited to announce he is taking his journey down Elm Street a lot farther and in a whole new way.

Hutson has written a coffee table book detailing the original Wes Craven classic in a way no one has before. This over 200-page, hardcover tome is entitled Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy–The Making of Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and is the ultimate look at the scary, thrilling and groundbreaking 1984 film.

Through personal relationships and incredible access to many of the film’s cast and crew, the amazing story of how the movie was conceived, created and released truly comes alive.

Exclusive interviews with dozens of people who brought Elm Street to life (writer/director, producers, cast, cinematographer, effects artists, designers, stunt people and more) combined with hundreds of materials, including rare, never-before-seen photographs, storyboards, conceptual drawings, archival documents and more, complete this cleverly-crafted, comprehensive chronicle.

This book was a labor of love for Hutson, who spent two and a half years crafting it. The project is currently in its final stages of layout, and now Hutson is asking for some help in making the project a reality in time for the film’s 30th anniversary: He’s inviting Elm Street fans, genre fans and those who love seeing what goes on behind the curtain of making a movie to support the book. Information, details of the book, a sneak peek at some of the layouts and a video guest-starring Nancy Thompson herself, Heather Langenkamp, can all be found at the Kickstarter campaign page:

“I cannot tell you how excited I am that this book, something on which I have been working for a long time, is so close to becoming a reality,” says Hutson. “At first, I had discussed the project with some publishers, but I soon realized, like the amazing documentary, this was something better done independently. That’s why I’m bringing it directly to the fans: to ensure it’s the most thorough, in-depth, unfettered presentation of the story behind the film. Everyone’s pledges made within the next couple of weeks will bring this book to life.”
What fans can expect in return for their pledges are some public thanks and cool rewards, including getting a copy of the book (along with some great incentives). “The only way for this all-encompassing ‘making of’ book to see the light of day is if fans pledge to get their copy through this campaign,” admits Hutson. “If we fall short of our goal, all the incredible stories, photos, materials and lore associated with A Nightmare on Elm Street will remain trapped in the boiler room.”

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

Special features:
*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
*Exclusive Steelbook packaging and collector’s o-card sleeve, featuring artwork from Malleus, Van Orton Design, Juan José Saldarriaga & Chris MacGibbon
*Three disc [Two Blu-rays + One CD] limited collector’s edition (only 6000 units) containing a new 4K restoration of the original uncut, uncensored Italian 35mm camera negative exclusively done by Synapse Films, with color correction supervised and approved by SUSPIRIA Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli
*Original 4.0 1977 English language LCRS sound mix not heard since the theatrical release in 1977, presented in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96 Khz/24-bit audio
*Italian 5.1 surround sound mix
*Two audio commentaries by authors and Argento scholars, Derek Botelho, David Del Valle & Troy Howarth
*Do You Know Anything About Witches? – 30 minute SUSPIRIA visual essay written, edited and narrated by Michael Mackenzie
