A Take on Wes Cravens New Nightmare
22 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ever see that movie called Wes Cravens New Nightmare. Yeah that one, where Freddy is trying to cross into the real world and the movie is "real life". Well Supernatural takes its own twist and delivers nothing but pure brilliance here. I will not go into details too much on what the plot consists of but I will touch base on the main points.

First off I would like to correct previous reviewers. I have watched the trivia track and listened to the commentary that the 6th season Blu-ray has to offer and I am just going to go over a few corrections. It did not take me the trivia track to tell you that none of the actual "Crew" appears in this. It is Brian Murphey who plays Robert Singer, and even Eric Kripke himself does not make an appearance. They all are hired actors to portray the real life producers and directors. Another correction is you do not actually see Jensen's trailer. The exterior is real but the interior is not his actual trailer. Another thing, You do not actually see Jareds real house. I mean come on, do you think they really are going to show the actors house, THATS JUST STUPID TO THINK SO.

This episode is very creative how the actors parody themselves as staying in character as Dean and Sam. The script is very well written for this episode as is the writing on many others. Like I said, I am not going to ruin anything for those who have not seen it. If you have not seen this episode and are a fan you need to. IT IS THAT SIMPLE
