See What Freddy Krueger Almost Looked Like Instead

31 October 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Horror movies are only as good as the monsters that inhabit them. From Michael Myers to Jason Voorhees, the slasher genre in particular has created some of the most iconic and distinctive looking mass murderers ever to grace the silver screen. Arguably no other slasher has maintained more mainstream exposure or than the nightmare-stalking Freddy Krueger – played to glorious effect by actor Robert Englund. However, the now legendary Freddy once looked quite different. Bloody Disgusting (follow the link to see the images) has some new pictures that show how Freddy’s look for Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street films was almost significantly different. This transformation is chronicled in the crowd-funded documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy. His trademark sweater was always present, but it had no sleeves, and instead of a fedora, the supernatural serial killer adorned his head with »

Freddy Krueger almost didn't look like this

30 October 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Can you imagine Freddy Krueger without his famed fedora? Now you don't have to. Here's the "Newsies" version Wes Craven and company almost went with, before settling on the iconic look we know today (courtesy Bloody-Disgusting): Doesn't quite have the same feel, does it? It's fascinating to wonder whether the paperboy cap and sleeveless (!) red-and-green sweater would have doomed the franchise before it even began. We'll never know, but it's fun to speculate as a sort of "Sliding Doors"-esque scenario. The photo, in case you were wondering, comes courtesy of Thommy Hutson, who wrote and directed the excellent four-hour documentary "Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy," which covers all films in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series except the much-criticized 2010 remake. Trust: it's a must-see for any hardcore fan of the series. Navigate over to Bloody-Disgusting to see an additional image that features a number of different »

ScreamFest La opens with Tales Of Halloween

15 October 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

ScreamFest La is now in full swing, and I could not be more ready for a week+ of horror movies from some of the best up-and-coming horror producers/directors in the world! I attended opening night on Tuesday and was treated to Epic Pictures & The October Society’s horror anthology Tales Of Halloween. The film included ten short terrifying—and sometimes hilarious—films from the likes of Adam Gierasch (Fertile Ground, Night Of The Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), Axelle Carolyn (Centurion, Soulmate), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2-4), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), John Skipp (Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child), Lucky Mckee (The Woman), Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers), Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent), Paul Solet (Grace), and Ryan Schifrin (Abominable).

There are quite a few horror movies reaching the silver screen this weekend, but Tales Of Halloween is the perfect film for the season. »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s John Skipp and Andrew Kasch

13 October 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions, and more.

The only directing duo contributing to Tales of Halloween, John Skipp (writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street 5) and Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) have a lot to say about making a movie with their friends and the current state of horror. Their segment, “This Means War,” about a pair of neighbors feuding over Halloween decorations, deals with this very subject.

One of the things I love about Tales of Halloween is that so many of the segments deal with different aspects of the holiday. Yours tackles Halloween decorations... sort of. Where did the inspiration for your short, "This Means War", come from?

Andrew Kasch: Halloween haunts are my jam! Each year, I hit »

Movie Poster of the Week: Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and the Posters of Matthew Peak

4 September 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In the 2010 documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, Wes Craven predicts that when he dies his obituaries will say “Probably best known for inventing Freddy Krueger.” When he passed away last Sunday the New York Times headline read “Wes Craven, Whose Slasher Films Terrified Millions, Dies at 76,” but the second paragraph of his obit did say, “perhaps Mr. Craven’s most famous creation was the serial killer Freddy Krueger, played by Robert Englund, who, with his razor-blade glove, haunted the dreams of high school students in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and its sequels.”Though he had been making films for 12 years, starting with the Bergman-inspired Last House on the Left in 1972—not to mention a few years of making porn films before that—it was A Nightmare on Elm Street, a little indie horror film that he both wrote and directed, that made Wes Craven’s fortune. »

New trailer for the re-release of Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th

7 August 2015 2:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I think we can all agree that Friday the 13th is still one of the most iconic horror movies ever made and with a new instalment reportedly on the way from Hannibal‘s Bryan Fuller, Jason Voorhees looks set to remain one of the greatest horror movie characters of all time.

But while fans eagerly await Fuller’s version, there was a documentary released by the team behind Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, which documented the history of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th is doing the same thing for Friday the 13th in this 7-hour three-disc set. Fans of the series will have picked this up when it was released two years ago, but they’ve just received a new distribution deal to re-release the movie and reach a wider audience.
