One, Two, Freddy's Coming for You
Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010)
Dir - Daniel Farrands & Andrew Kasch
This is an exhaustive look into the Freddy franchise from inception through Freddy vs Jason. At four hours it doesn't lull and gives so much information from practically everyone involved with the films and it's great! From discussing the overtly gay themes of Part 2, a look at the TV series (Freddy's Nightmares), chatting with the Dream Warriors and hearing about alternate scripts (Peter Jackson had a particularly great sounding script for Part 6 that wasn't used) it's very informative. The only downside is now I have the need to re-watch the whole series, but that's not really a bad thing.
