Based on the characters created by Wes Craven in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, In Dreams follows Cheyenne (played by Alicia Shortman), an American teenager, who crosses paths with the “Boogeyman”: Freddy Krueger. Watch the trailer embedded at the top of the article and see the entire film below.
“Why a Fan Film? Simply because we wanted to pay homage to an era of sensational horror films, full of ideas and energy and with visual content that has dictated the stylistic features of the genre for decades to come,” director Cristian Tomassini tells us.
The independent production is Italian, the short film was written by Silvio Marotta and directed by Cristian Tomassini for the Anima Film Srl production company. The low-budget project took a week of preproduction and a day of filming to pay tribute to the Master of Horror, Wes Craven.
