Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010)

Directed by Daniel Farrands, Andrew Kasch

Starring Heather Langenkamp, Wes Craven, Robert Englund, Robert Shaye


A heartfelt homage to the cast and crew, and a wonderful job getting so much of them back. A boon for real fans of the series.

The rapid-fire interviews are marvelously intercut, and the documentary is cleanly broken down into logical sections for each film. The editor deserves a lot of credit here. But 4 hours of it? There’s just too much. Many of these folks are repeating what others have said. I feel like the film could have been half as long.

Would have been good to get at least a comment or two from Depp and Arquette.
