Freddy will always be the most loved and frightening character of my childhood. This documentary has pretty cool random facts about its origins and how it ended up becoming a film franchise against Wes Craven will. It also underlines how Elm Street was the reason why the independent film distribution company New Line Cinema survived the 80s and became a mainstream film studio, "The House that Freddy Built" indeed.
The ultimate Elm Street documentary runs for a staggering 4 hours yet never loses sight of it's fascinating agenda. A shame Patricia Arquette was not a part of this, Dream Warriors is my personal fave of the series & I would've loved to see why she never returned for the 5th installment. But I was fine with no Depp (less of him is always a good thing in my opinion...). Special cameo from Jason Mewes was great.
