    I know this has basically NOTHING to do with "Star Wars"...but I wanted to let everyone here know about a project I am involved with that is very important to me...

    I'm the Assistant Production Manager on a documentary that is now lensing titled NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: The Elm Street Legacy. Those of us behind the scenes on the project consider it to be the definitive documentary on the ORIGINAL A Nightmare on Elm Street series. It's being Executive Produced and Narrated by Heather (Nightmares 1, 3, and 7) Langenkamp and Co-Directed by Andrew (Thirsty) Kasch, and Produced and Co-Directed by Daniel (A Haunting In Connecticut, Halloween 6) Farrands. So far we have over 80 interviews completed and tomorrow we're shooting another ten...at least!

    It would mean a lot to me if those of you who are fans of the original series (and also those who are supportive of the work I'm doing) would check out the website and spread the word if you could...

    Hope we're able to "fuel the fire" and get people excited about the project!

    Thanks in advance for your support and help! And...sweet dreams!!!!

    Thanks for the support, Sara. I'm just as excited about the finished product as anyone... I've been a fan for life, basically. The original Halloween will always be my favorite movie...but the Nightmare films are my favorite horror series in overall quality, creativity, etc.

    Thanks for reading...stay connected and spread the news, please!

    The ultimate documentary on the original A Nightmare on Elm Street series is now available for pre-order. NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY- Executive Produced by Heather (Nightmares 1 and 3, and New Nightmare) Langenkamp, co-directed by Daniel (A Haunting In Connecticut) Farrands and Andrew (Thirsty) Kasch, Produced by Thommy Hutson, and Co-Produced by Lito Velasco -is the most in-depth documentary ever produced regarding the horror series that has earned a special place in film history for both the terror it inspired and the boogeyman and horror icon it unleashed upon the world: Freddy Krueger.

    For decades, Krueger has slashed his way through the dreams of countless terrified victims, scaring up over a half-billion dollars in box-office through the course of eight horrifying, spectacular films. What?s more, it has become evident that Freddy may never truly rest in peace.

    In this thrilling tribute and retrospective, fans will find everything they?ve ever dreamed of as they enter the world of A Nightmare on Elm Street like never before: exploring what spurred mastermind Wes Craven to craft the first groundbreaking film; delving deep behind-the-scenes of the original and all of its sequels; learning how the cast and crew brought their worst nightmares to life on screen; and, finally, understanding the impact the series and its mythos have had on pop culture and the horror genre.

    This fast-paced, exciting ?shockumentary?, also narrated by and starring Heather Langenkamp, features exclusive new interviews with cast and crew spanning all eight Elm Street films, as well as rare, never-before-seen photographs, storyboards, conceptual art, publicity materials, archival documents, and behind-the-scenes footage.

    NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY is the definitive account of what many have called the best, most frightening and imaginative franchise in motion picture history, and it?s now available for pre-order through the official website:

    http://shop.elmstreetlegacy.com/Never-Sleep-Again-The-Elm-Street-Legacy-2-disc-DVD-p/063390030224.htm

Additionally, this poster will be signed by Miss Heather Langenkamp herself!

    Finally, any domestic customers who pre-order through the website will be entered into a drawing to win one of three Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy teaser posters signed by over 80 of the cast and crew members of the Elm Street series who were interviewed for the project!

    So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the official site and place your order today! You?ve got a date to relive all the horror, excitement, and terror?with the man of your dreams!

    I hope by now some of you have had a chance to order and view our documentary... I'd love to hear your thoughts on our film. So far, we've been getting rave reviews, but I always like to hear what my friends and family have to say.

    Here's some samples of our reviews:

    ?NEVER SLEEP AGAIN truly does do justice to the ELM STREET legacy, and even the most die-hard devotees are guaranteed to hear and see a wealth of stories and content they?ve never been aware of before. Fedoras off to the team responsible for this high-water mark in genre documentaries?? - Fangoria.com

    ?There?s a lot to love about Never Sleep Again, and virtually nothing to hate. It?s not only an expertly crafted film about a beloved horror franchise, it?s also a film about the legacy of New Line Cinema, and ultimately, a film about the horror genre as a whole. Frankly, you won?t find a horror documentary better than this one? - Bloody-Disgusting.com

    ?These are the kinds of in-depth yet light-hearted gems fans care about, not the paint-by-numbers stuff your average studio-produced DVD extra disc is going to be likely to contain. Never Sleep Again was made by genre fans who approach it from a place of love, but more importantly by filmmakers who understand that nothing is precious and nothing is off-limits.? - Horror.com

    ?Never Sleep Again is a truly exhaustive look back at a series that obviously has meant a lot to many people. It?s a reminder of what makes A Nightmare on Elm Street so special in the first place. The Nightmare legacy is one that will endure forever, and Never Sleep Again reinforces this. For Nightmare fans, this truly is the ultimate love letter, and it?s proof that the nightmare will never truly end.? - Oh! The Horror.com

    ?Veteran horror fans, casual viewers of the original series, and even disgruntled moviegoers who didn?t feel satisfied by the current NOES remake could do much worse than checking out this amazing documentary, which is probably the best of it?s kind in the annals of horror. It serves as a reminder of just how big the franchise was in the eighties and nineties, and how popular the character of Freddy Krueger still is today.? - Suite101.com

    ?Despite the marathon running time, NEVER SLEEP AGAIN is never boring. The interview segments are expertly cut together to create a remarkably smooth narrative, and the anecdotes, trivia and reminisces are remarkably engaging. For fans of Freddy Kruger and the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films, NEVER SLEEP AGAIN is a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes stories and an affectionate celebration of the franchise?s place in horror movie history. It?s also great to see the stars of the movies (minus Johnny Depp, unfortunately) as they are today, reflecting on their ELM STREET experiences. Highly recommended.? - DVDLateShow.com

    ??it?s a must own for any Freddy fan? - Harry Knowles, Ain?t It Cool News

    ?There is so much to love about taking this late night stroll down Elm Street, that it makes me excited to be a fan again. Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy is a dream come true for Nightmare fans. This is a wealth of information that will surprise, excite, and shock you. It is an honest and insightful look at the franchise that is an absolute must own. While I enjoyed the fluffy nature of His Name Was Jason, this is a much more satisfying watch that stands head and shoulders above the horror documentaries that came before. So, if you know what?s good for you, ?Don?t?fall?asleep!? until you finish watching this incredible two-disc Nightmare on Elm Street bit of goodness!? - JoBlo.com (Arrow in the Head DVD Reviews)

    ?Detailed, informative and truly exhaustive, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy provides the most extensive and fascinating look at the Nightmare on Elm Streetfranchise seen to date. With solid narration by Heather Langenkamp and more interviews than should be able to fit on two DVD?s, this is a treasure of a set with solid technical aspects and a true wealth of special features. The interviews don?t shy away from the problems of the franchise but they don?t

    Awesome! Be sure your addict cousin orders a copy from our official website before June 1st: if he does, he gets a super-cool copy of our beautiful poster art (with my name in the credits!) which will be personally autographed by Heather Langenkamp!

    Can't even begin to think about another documentary unless THIS one sells well. Which means we need people like you to buy it, support it, and make it a huge success so I can begin work on my dream documentary:

    the Indiana Jones films. THEN...maybe Star Wars!
