While the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise has stalled ever since that mediocre remake failed to bring in the business expected, its fanbase still seems to be going strong, and Venn Pictures have recently announced that they are working on a new documentary which explores this. It’s called FredHeads, and this is what their official Facebook page says;
Venn Pictures is excited to announce its latest project, FredHeads!
FredHeads is a documentary about the fandom of A Nightmare on Elm Street and how it has changed the lives of so many people. The documentary will follow 3 fans as they tell their story and what their journey in the Nightmare community has been; some as fans, others rising through popularity. Along the way, we will be filming at conventions and getting as many fan stories as possible to feature as many fans as we can in the documentary. It’s about the heart and soul of horror, and what Nightmare means to people and why it is not a typical slasher film.
From the creative minds that brought you the Fan Film Don’t Fall Asleep comes a new journey into Nightmare. We have started production and are currently continuing to gather footage. “Calling all Nightmare fans, wanna be in our documentary?” Come out and join us at Flashback Weekend this August and Scarefest this September. In the coming months we will be talking more about the project and how you as a fan can support and be involved.
We are extremely excited to launch this project and we have been working for months perfecting things behind the scenes.
I’m a bit of a FredHead myself, so I’m looking forward to this a great deal.
