First Trailer for 'FredHeads: The Documentary' About 'Nightmare' Fans
"Are you a FredHead?" An early teaser trailer has debuted for a fascinating little documentary about horror fans who loved the A Nightmare on Elm Street series, the one with knife-glove-wearing Freddy Krueger as its nasty villain. It's called FredHeads: The Documentary and examines the culture and community that has built up around the Elm Street series and Freddy. This doc is being directed by Paige Troxell, who also previously made the fan film Don't Fall Asleep telling the story of Nancy Thompson after the events of A Nightmare on Elm Street. The film is still being completed and is seeking funding on Indiegogo, so if you like this trailer, help them out to make sure it gets finished (hopefully in 2018). This bit of footage in the teaser is cool, and I'm hoping they get the money they need. This is a perfect film to debut at Fantastic Fest.
