The Creepy Wes Craven Dream That Inspired New Nightmare

This particular dream involved Craven at a party with people from New Line – the production company behind the series – with Freddy star Robert Englund in attendance. “Robert Englund was there in costume, acting like the burlesque Freddy that I felt he had become, and I felt in the dream that in the background was a shadowy figure that was moving parallel to Robert—his own darker shadow, completely apart from that party and it felt very frightening,” recalled the director. In trying to puzzle out the subtext of this image, the idea of “Freddy” being a separate entity from his makers and breaking free of the films came to Craven.

He also used the sequel to explore how elemental storytelling is to a culture and exorcising fear, from fairytales to horror movies. New Nightmare – which has no opening titles – was a box-office disappointment upon release but is now considered one of the best of the series. Its meta-element also beat Craven’s own Scream by two years, though the latter was the more commercial of the two.
