Film #282: NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY
Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy
3 out of 5 stars
At 240 minutes, this is an excessively long and yet utterly comprehensive documentary on the making of the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films. No stone is left unturned here and it’s not always a good thing. In many cases, time has not always been kind to the people involved (some have aged poorly). There is just so much covered that it can, at times, be overwhelming. At times, things get a little self-congratulatory, but it’s obvious everyone’s heart is in the right place. Fans of the films (which, other than the first one, I am not) will savor every story and bit of insider gossip. Others will just wonder what all the fuss is about.
