I posted a few months ago that a feature length documentary about Nightmare On Elm Street fandom called FredHeads was coming and now we have a new poster and even a teaser trailer to show you.
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.
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.
Director Paige Troxell
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. 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.
Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures have launched an Indiegogo in order to complete production on the ambitious project.
The crowdfunding campaigns allows fans to pre-order a limited edition DVD of the documentary, ensuring that they will be among the first to see FredHeads. T-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks, and sunglasses are among the available merchandise. One-of-a-kind perks from Elm Street alumni are also up for grabs, including prop replicas signed by Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.

I think it looks good. I doubt they’ll find many fans of the remake though….
