This is not just the greatest, and most comprehensive documentary about the Elm Street legacy that you will ever see, it's also one of the most interesting documentaries about film making in general and the rise of New Line cinema through it's Freddy franchise. Featuring a wealth of detail from writing, pre-production, production, directing, and with some insightful, funny, and nostalgic contirbutions from a huge number of stars, writers, and directors (including maestro Wes Craven) this is a thoughtfully made, and fascinating documentary that fans will utterly love, and fans of film making in general will find incredibly compelling. Covers everything from the first film, through to Freddy vs Jason, it's frank and honest, and superbly put together with excerpots from the original script, behind the scenes footage, alternate takes, and so many old faces reliving their Freddy expreiences that by the end of the three and a half hour ride, you'll be wanting to watch the whole lot again. If you are a fan, you simply HAVE to own this.
