Art: New Nightmare by Mike Saputo

Ten years after creating A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven would return behind the camera for New Nightmare, and bringing with him was a new Freddy Krueger that completely turned the franchise on its head.

Before the franchise dipped into the goofier side of horror, Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street was an altogether […]
