Forgotten Flix

We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

Ep. 038 – TFFP: A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)

In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we’ll never sleep again as we talk about Wes Craven’s classic A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)!

Directed by Wes Craven and starring Heather Lagenkamp, Robert Englund, John Saxon, Johnny Depp, and Amanda Wyss.

Synopsis: When her teenage friends begin dying in their sleep, Nancy (Heather Lagenkamp) knows who’s responsible: the same disfigured man wearing a glove with knives for fingers who has been haunting her dreams too: Fred Krueger. Alone and with no one believing her, only Nancy can stop the maniacal Krueger before it’s too late!

Special thanks to filmmaker extraordinaire Paul Osborne for joining us for this episode! Paul wrote, directed, and produced Official Rejection, a brilliant “behind-the-scenes” look at what indie filmmakers go through to get their films into (or most likely, rejected from) film festivals.

Featuring Kevin Smith, Lloyd Kaufman and many other notable voices from the world of independent films, Official Rejection is documentary any film fan (film maker) should check out! Check out the Official Rejection site here.

And be sure to check out Paul’s upcoming feature-film Favor too.
