We're continuing out spooky streak for October with the Wes Craven classic: Nightmare on Elm Street. With the help of Alex, assignment editor at, we take a look back at the 9 films, the cultural impact they had, how absolutely absurd they are, and of course fo in-depth on the first one. We also break down the importance of practical effects throughout the films and the grand scale on which they were executed. Plus, we also discuss Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street and how the documentary chronicles the rise of NOES 2 as a staple of queer horror cinema.
