Welcome to Episode 7 of Nightmare on Film Street’sNEVER SLEEP AGAIN Series! Through 9 grueling episodes, we’ll be covering every single film in the A Nightmare on Elm Streetseries… on no sleep!
Wes Craven returns to the franchise that Freddy built with 1994’s New Nightmare. Starring A Nightmare on Elm Street all-stars Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, John Saxon, and Wes Craven as themselves, New Nightmare is the meta-horror forefather of what would later become the Scream franchise. Released only 10 years after the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare is a dark ride into the nature of storytelling, the destructive power of fame, and (most importantly) features a cool brimmed baddy with skeleton knives for fingers!
Join your sleep horror hosts as they deliriously dive into this macabre vision of terror from the master of horror himself. At the time of recording, Jon & Kim had gone 21 hours without sleep, which is the exact state of mind required to discuss: Freddy’s cool new trenchcoat, what a found footageNightmare on Elm Street movie would look like, and whether or not Heather Langenkamp’s [fictional] son is a hauntedrobot. Join usssss 🥴☕
