FredHeads: New Trailer For Documentary About Elm Street Fans


 

It’s been a while since word got out that there would be an A Nightmare On Elm Street documentary that focuses specifically on how the franchise has impacted fans for the more than 30 years since its debut. Today we now have an official trailer and snazzy poster to share with you of FredHeads, so let’s get on with it, bitch.

Wes Craven’s film spawned a cultural phenomenon that has given ever-lasting life to both its creator and villain, Freddy Kreuger. FredHeads’ central theme analyzes how being a fan can change your life. The filmmakers have been traveling the country to speak with enthusiasts of all types: passionate fanatics, lifelong aficionados, cosplayers, creators, artists, filmmakers, kids, and more.

Check out the trailer for FredHeads below:

The documentary also features insight from the stars and creatives of the Elm Street franchise, exploring the enduring legacy, cultural impact, and fan community. Interview subjects include Lisa Wilcox, Robert Kurtzman, Tuesday Night, Miko Hughes, Danny Hassel, Andras Jones, Toy Newkirk, Kelly Jo Minter, Ricky Dean Logan, and Mick Strawn, among others.

The doc is directed by Paige Troxell, who credits the franchise with saving her life. “In my darkest times, I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home,” gushes Troxell. “I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other.”

Check out the retro-looking poster for the upcoming documentary below:

Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures have launched an Indiegogo in order to complete production on the ambitious project. This crowdfunding campaign allows generous fans to chance to pre-order a limited edition DVD of the finished documentary and other such goodies like T-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks, and sunglasses. There is even some prop replicas signed by Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.

FredHeads is looking to finish up so its ready for release by December 2018.
