The Nightmare On Elm Street Franchise Part One

Ep. 54

In a recording too epic to be constrained by one episode, Cine-Lit explores the films and legacy of the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise over two heart-pounding podcasts. Joining Adam and Darrell is Derby QUAD's Fright Club host and programmer Adam Crowther, as they talk about the man of your dreams, Freddy Krueger! In this first episode, we cover the genesis of the initial instalment, the release of the first film at the tail end of the slasher boom, the rehabilitation of Part II and the return of Wes Craven in Part III.
