Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

Wes Craven's New Nightmare Movie Poster

Writer-director Wes Craven (The Hills Have Eyes, Scream) returns to the darkest shadows of Elm Street with “the cleverest, wittiest, most twisted scarefest in ages!” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)

Winner of Golden Scroll of Outstanding Achievement from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror, this spine-tingling tale reunites original Nightmare stars Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon as “reel” Freddy invades the real world with deadly results.

Life imitated art during the filming.  Soon after shooting an earth quake sequence, the “Northridge Quake” shook Los Angeles. Says Craven, “we were about to have rubble created for the movie, but instead, we were able to just go out and film the streets.” But don’t worry, Freddy fans. Its only a movie.. or is it?
