We’ve spent the last week at Probert Towers watching Never Sleep Again, a quite remarkably exhaustive four-hour plus documentary on the Nightmare On Elm Street series of films and pretty much the last word on the subject. The team behind this have gathered together as many key personnel from each of these movies as they could, including Wes Craven and Robert Shaye, Robert Englund and Heather Langenkamp (who also narrates the entire thing) and many, many others. It’s a tremendous piece of work – illuminating, enjoyable and with the same sense of fun that most of the films had. All eight films are dealt with – ie, Parts I – V, Freddy’s Dead, New Nightmare and Freddy vs Jason. Yes, friends, you can relax as this disc is entirely Michael Bay remake free. For anyone who grew up watching this series it’s compulsive viewing, and the only reason it’s taken us so long to get through it is because we’ve stopped to watch a number of the films along the way, resulting in one of those pleasant nostalgia trips that I’ve felt the urge to share.
