Roberto Lombardi has stated in interviews that in order to prepare to play Freddy Krueger for the first time, he studied physical and psychological traits of sadists, masochists and child abductors and their methods. He also studied the original A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) and New Nightmare (1994) for voice traits and mannerisms. See more »

A labor of love.
16 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

A interesting concept and frankly, I could see Hollywood doing a much better adaption of it.

With that being said, you can tell it's a labor of love. The cinematography isn't very good and the dialog is downright awful.

Further, the portrayal of Freddy Krueger feels really off base. The short film makes assumptions that Krueger already had plans to become a demon and that the song preceded his death, which I don't really personally believe.

I can understand the appeal for some people, but unfortunately I just don't feel it's very good.
