“Fear gives Freddy strength, but the fans keep Freddy alive”

As A Nightmare on Elm Street is a global phenomenon that continues to thrive many years after its 1984 release, fans of all ages, both nationally and internationally, are invited to share their stories. With the central theme of how being a fan can change your life, FredHeads will feature enthusiasts of all types: passionate fanatics, life-long aficionados, cosplayers, creators, artists, filmmakers, kids, and more. The documentary will also feature insight from the stars and creatives involved in the original film series (Robert Kurtzman, Mick Strawn, Tuesday Knight, Lisa Wilcox, Miko Hughes, Ricky Dean Logan, Toy Newkirk, Danny Hassel, Andras Jones, Kelly Jo Minter, and many more), exploring the enduring legacy, the cultural impact, and the passion of the Elm Street fan community.
Venn Pictures is an independent film company who previously released the fan film Don’t Fall Asleep (2016), which follows Nancy Thompson between the events of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. It was narrated by original actress Heather Langenkamp and scored by the award-winning composer Lito Velasco.
Venn Pictures is partnering with Northgate Pictures, whose previous film, Easter Sunday, received worldwide distribution through Camp Motion Pictures and sold out on Amazon on its first day of release. The throwback to 1980s horror stars genre icon Robert Z’Dar (Maniac Cop) is his final role and features an appearance by Friday the 13th’s original Jason Voorhees, Ari Lehman.

Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures have launched an Indiegogo in order to complete production on the ambitious project.
The crowdfunding campaigns allows fans to pre-order a limited edition DVD of the documentary, ensuring that they will be among the first to see FredHeads. T-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks, and sunglasses are among the available merchandise. One-of-a-kind perks from Elm Street alumni are also up for grabs, including prop replicas signed by Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.
FredHeads is directed by Paige Troxell, who credits A Nightmare on Elm Street with saving her life. “In my darkest times I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home,” gushes Troxell. “I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other.”
The documentary also features insight from the stars and creatives of the Elm Street franchise, exploring the enduring legacy, cultural impact, and fan community. Interview subjects include Lisa Wilcox, Robert Kurtzman, Tuesday Night, Miko Hughes, Danny Hassel, Andras Jones, Toy Newkirk, Kelly Jo Minter, Ricky Dean Logan, and Mick Strawn, among others.
