Welcome back! Last we left off we were talking about the VHS rerelease for A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. Now you are returned to your regular scheduled programming.
Remember when the remake for Friday The 13th was being hyped far and wide, what good came from that? Well if you said the Deluxe Editions and His Name Was Jason you Sir and or Madam know your horror history. So, I told you that to tell you this. Remember when the remake for A Nightmare On Elm Street was being hyped far and… Yeah, a lot of people thought Deluxe Editions was going to be released and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Nightmare 4 I could see it now… Commentary with Lisa Wilcox, Deleted Scenes and Interviews by Cast and Crew but as history or New Line told us there wasn’t even a thought of Deluxe Editions. Only thing we got was a rehash box set with new art work. That is what I call a Massive Fail and bad marketing, and The Massive One knows marketing. Don’t believe me, head on over to Drunken Zombie dot com and find out.
Now then… A Nightmare On Elm Street (Remake) hit theaters, sure it had mix reviews. I even own it on DVD and it’s a skip with the special features. With that said, horror fans got something only nightmares are made of and we shall call it, Never Sleep Again – The Elm Street Legacy in other words, mind blown. So! The Elm Street Legacy had the who’s who with everybody you need to know when it came to Nightmare 4 if you seen the documentary you know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t… Why are you on this site? I know why, to listen to this new podcast that you just found, called Krueger Nation www.KruegerNation.com, I hope you enjoy. Meanwhile! The Massive One was in awe when the Nightmare 4 segment came on. Lisa Wilcox, Renny Harlin, Tuesday Knight, Andras Jones and even Nicholas Mele talking about their experiences on and off set… Tuesday, Oh Tuesday! But I digress, watch it if you have it and buy it if you don’t.
Question, has anyone heard of Behind The Scenes Of A Nightmare On Elm Street 4? No… Okay, a couple of you have. Cool. It’s a three disc set by Bill Forsche (Special makeup effects artist for A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master) and it’s his personal home video footage from Nightmare 4. The footage ranges from seeing props being made, Robert Englund in the makeup chair getting the Freddy prosthetics glued to his face and a lot of onset footage of scenes being shot, set up or rehearsed. As for interviews with the stars there isn’t any and that was one thing I was looking forward too, hearing the cast talk about the film from 1988.
Have mercy, if you will that is a lot. Sure I can go on and on about other DVD collections that have Nightmare 4 extas such as A Nightmare On Elm Street Collection Blu-Ray Region Free box set or the Freddy Vs. Ash Vs. Jason comics but that’s a story for another time.
I hope everyone enjoyed what I had to say about all the DVDs, special features and extras. And once again a Massive thank you to Johnny for giving me this opportunity and being a part of Krueger Nation.
