They've also done a Criterion-level job of supplementing their film with enough featurettes to fill an entire second disc. Not only is there an additional hour of extended interviews (which include some amusingly dismissive comments about the 2010 reboot), but there's also a tour of the first film's Southern California locations, conversations with the composers for all six films (as well as pop-metal rockers Dokken, who reaped a hit with their theme to Dream Warriors), a look at the memorable poster art of Matthew Joseph Peake, and an impressive array of collectibles and memorabilia from fans, some of whom have taken their love for Freddy to extreme levels (i.e., tattoos). A hilarious rant from the Angry Video Game Nerd about the Nightmare on Elm Street game for Nintendo is a highlight, while a preview of Langenkamp's own documentary, I Am Nancy, is a quirky look at the actress's apparent attempt to comprehend the Nightmare phenomenon. Never Sleep Again is quite simply the definitive look at every aspect of the Nightmare franchise. --Paul Gaita

Main Feature - 4 hours
Although there's a few notable absences (Ronee Blakely, Johnny Depp, Patricia Arquette, Craig Wasson, etc.), the bulk of the surviving cast/crew members from "A Nightmare on Elm Street" through "Freddy Vs. Jason" are interviewed. They even touch on the TV series "Freddy's Nightmares." Includes clips from the films (and tons of other related films), never before seen photos, on-set footage, deleted scenes and more!
Extended Interviews - 2 hours
Additional interviews, separated by film, that didn't make the final cut. Annoyingly, there's no "play all" feature, and there's some sound issues (the stereo sound is off-balance during several segments).
First Look: Heather Langenkamp's I Am Nancy - 7 mins.
A sneak peek at Langenkamp's forthcoming documentary.
For the Love of the Glove - 18 mins.
A superfan shows off his collection of prop gloves from the films; and several people who create and sell glove replicas are interviewed. Elm Street 2 star Robert Rusler also discusses the day the glove was stolen from the set.
Fred Heads: The Ultimate Freddy Fans - 13 mins.
A look at Freddy merchandising and its fans.
Horror's Hallowed Grounds: Return to Elm Street - 23 mins.
A tour of the locations from Elm Street 1, featuring appearances by several cast members from the first two films.
Freddy Vs. the Angry Video Game Nerd - 5 mins.
A humorous look at the '90s Nintendo game.
Expanding the Freddy Universe: Freddy in Comic Books & Novels - 16 mins.
Authors of Elm Street comic/novel spin-offs discuss their works. Again, the stereo sound is off balance for a good chunk of this featurette.Read more ›
From the makers of the Friday The 13th docu, "His Name Was Jason", comes this look back at the 26 year old Nightmare On Elm Street franchise. HNWJ was great. Great fluff. Don't come into this one thinking it is something along the same lines. What we have here is something far reaching and serious. Unlike the quick 90 minutes of past docus, this amazing gem is 4 hours long!. It's Freddy/Elm Street overload that should put every fan in an Elm Street induced coma(with special appearance by Freddy, of course). Every single movie in the franchise(excluding the remake), and even the short lived TV series "Freddy's Nightmares", is given it's due. A ton of people from the franchise, from both in front of and behind the camera, are on tap here to give up the dirt on the series. All of the regulars you would expect to be here like Craven, Englund, Langenkamp, etc. are all on board, but there are literally tons of people I have never seen in any kind of Elm Street docu or featurette ever here as well. It's just a non stop parade of Elm Street veterans, ready and willing to take a trip back down Freddy's favorite street.Read more ›
The people who made this documentary did a fantastic job and went in-depth on all 8 original movies and even the T.V. show, Freddy's Nightmares. Narrated by Heather Langenkamp, who played Nancy in 1, 3, and herself in 7. There's a lot about the making and the special effects in it, and how each movie was made. There isn't anything better than this when it comes to documentaries, and nothing can beat it. The interviews were informative, the editing was great, there is nothing wrong with this.
If you love A Nightmare on Elm Street, or love documentaries, then buy this! I could go on about how much I love this, because it's fantastic.
