Where Is Alice Johnson? Part 3

noes4

Well, I just realized that I’ve been working backwards when it comes to appearances for Alice… Think of it as, we are going back to the future!

Now what is left for her character, is there any more source material? I’m glad to say there is and I’m not talking about fan fic, but there are some really good fan fic stories out there, but that’s a subject for another time. In 1991-92 a six part mini series called Nightmares on Elm Street was being released monthly that saw Freddy returning and it is up to Nancy, Alice and Dr. Gordon to stop him before Elm Street becomes a blood bath.

Okay, Let me say I haven’t red this series… I know, I know. How could a fan like myself not read about the one character he likes the most? Easy, I haven’t found a legit copy. Sure I’ve seen bootleg copies, screen shots and even a website that has the whole series and all you gotta do is it hit download, but I want the real thing. Over the years I seen the series on eBay go for a pretty penny. I’ll hold off until then, but I do know what the story is about, give me that. But since I can’t speak on them… Maybe one of you can ask Krueger Nation’s own host what he thinks about them, I know he has a few copies lying around his boiler room.

Lastly we have the novelization for The Dream Master and Dream Child. Both stories are collected in one book. The stories pretty much reads as the movie plays, but there are some differences. Like in the Dream Master, the book has Rick’s original death and not the Kung Fu fighting scene like in the film. Same goes for the Dream Child, the books ending is a bit different. Also included in this book are black and white stills from the Dream Master.

There you have it, everything you need to know about one of the coolest characters from the Elm Street franchise. I hope you all enjoyed what I had to say and if you have any recommendations or if I missed anything about Alice Johnson post in the comments below.

Also I would like to think Johnny Krueg for bringing me back for another round of nightmare fun. Until next time, you can find my work at DrunkenZombie.com and Doiner.com or read my ramblings by following @AdorableDoiner on Twitter. Massive!

A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master – Special Features and Extras Part 1

  When The Massive One was asked to be a guest writer for Krueger Nation it didn’t take him long to say yes and here I am, The Massive One known as Doiner from DrunkenZombie.com is here to talk to you! All the Krueger Nation Fans around the world, if you will.

 

Now if you follow The Massive One you know DVD extras are a big part of his DVD buying. He’ll skip a new release or a classic if the special features isn’t there. But on that rare occasion he’s been known to give in.

 

Let’s look at The Massive One’s favorite horror film of all the times, A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.

 

The only extras from the 2000 release are Jump to a Nightmare and Theatrical Trailer. Sure having the films trailer is good but Jump to a Nightmare… Yeah, not really. If I want to find a scene I’ll double F F or go to the scene selection. Also on the same disc you have the DVD-ROM features, which I hate. I wanna see the interviews and trivia information while the DVD is in a DVD player not in a computer where at times trying to load the DVD-ROM feature it just freezes and you gotta restart, not Massive at all. With that said…

The VHS rerelease for Nightmare 4 now that’s a buy. You have the theatrical trailer and interviews with Director Renny Harlin, Screenwriters Jim Wheat and Ken Wheat, and SFX John Carl Buechler at the end of the film. Here’s what’s being said in the VHS interviews –

 

The interview starts with Renny Harlin talking about making the best Elm Street film and why he can pull it off. In the interview Harlin talks about his dreams and how he can relate to the Elm Street kids then he goes on to discuss his meeting with New Line and trying his best to get the directing role but Harlin got the impression that the studio heads didn’t like him. Ken and Jim Wheat both talk about writing the script and how time was of the essence because the studio had a release date they wanted the film to come out on, also they talk about the writers strike. Harlin is back once again talking about the junkyard scene and how he envisioned it. John Carl Buechler tells a story on making a giant Freddy glove and how they made the pizza meatball heads. To Be Continued…
