    Never Sleep Again is the definitive documentary about The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. This is a well crafted documentary that goes in depth about this legendary series. The cast from the entire franchise are here discussing their scenes and other memories from the time on the numerous films in the series. I've seen plenty of documentaries on horror and this is among one of the finest films that I've seen. This will certainly delight diehard Nightmare fans, and the story that each person brings to the table makes this such an awesome documentary. This is an effectively directed feature that really goes behind the story and gives the fans exactly what they want. This is a definitive film that will certainly appeal to anyone that has been attracted to horror franchise. The interviews are well done and entertaining and it gives you something fulfilling in terms of how the Nightmare franchise became one of the standout series in the 1980's horror scene. With these films, Wes Craven and Robert Shaye created something truly in the genre and with that being said, there is a lot more to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise that simply just a slasher film. A few of the sequels, we're quite silly, but all of them were quite entertaining and fun for what they were. Never Sleep Again is an accomplished documentary that is among the finest in the horror genre. Everything you want to know about the Nightmare film is presented here and it is a perfect film for the fans and anyone who loves horror. This is a necessary viewing for genre buffs, and you definitely won't be disappointed with what is offered in this documentary. If you come across this film, check it out, it is worth every second or every nightmare I should say. This film is a pure delight from start to finish. Never Sleep Again is the definitive work on Freddy Krueger and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.

    Fascinating, in-depth documentary on the entire Elm St franchise.

    Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy is a documentary that covers the history of the Nightmare on Elm Street series. It's a very thorough and in-depth telling of the franchise from Wes Craven's initial concept to the final film. There are interviews with numerous actors, writers, and directors of the series who share some very interesting experiences that they had with the films and how they affect their lives. And it's narrated by Heather Langenkamp, star of the original Nightmare on Elm Street. However, the documentary lacks discernment and includes a lot of material that's not really needed. Fascinating and insightful, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy does an exemplary job at covering one of the landmark horror series in cinema.
