Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010)
Movie Review by The Mortician
09.22.14

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010) Director Daniel Farrands delivers a 4 hour plus documentary retrospective on the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise, chalk full of current interviews, reflections, clips, and behind-the-scenes footage is a horror fan's wet dream! If you're a Freddy Krueger fan and wanna wax nostalgia about the days when Krueger ruled the box office, then this movie is for you! Origins of the franchise are explored, with Wes Craven and former New Line head honcho Robert Shaye participating. It's a fascinating, underdog story for both men---wild success for Craven and building a profitable movie studio for Shaye... Lead NIGHTMARE actress Heather Langenkamp narrates the documentary, and while not quite as detailed as Farrands' CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES doc, this one delivers about everything you'd want to remember or ask about the franchise. Robert Englund is on hand with his fun perspective on playing Freddy the K Master, and things move at a brisk pace. The "gay" themes of ELM STREET 2 and the wild commercial breakthrough of Part 3-THE DREAM WARRIORS are covered well. Renny Harlin's near destitution and subsequent rocket to Hollywood director fame with ELM STREET 4 is an awesome success story that is told well. The rest of the sequels are also given ample time, and wow, Lisa Wilcox from Parts 4 and 5-The Dream Child, hasn't aged a bit! She's hotter than ever, aging much like a fine wine, more beautiful than she was in the ELM STREET movies. THE FINAL NIGHTMARE (the 3-D adventure with Alice Cooper) and Craven's NEW NIGHTMARE (a film that divided fans) are also given ample time and fair treatment. There's coverage of the silly TV show (FREDDY'S NIGHTMARES) with plenty of sequences that were cut (sex and gore, baby!) that make you actually want to revisit the show---if it was unedited, that is. Finally, we end on a high note with Ronny Yu's FREDDY VS. JASON (similarly covered in CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES)...The doc filmmakers wisely skip the putrid ELM STREET remake and this doc is the ultimate ELM STREET video companion. Highly recommended for both the casual and diehard fan, I'd call this retrospective BRILLIANT.
