Never Sleep Again Is Making The Jump To Blu On January 21!

Never-Sleep-AgainI’m so excited and I just can’t hide it.  The 4 hour, entire franchise spanning documentary on the Nightmare On Elm Street series is finally making the leap from DVD to Blu-ray next month!  I have every bit of confidence in telling you that this is the best, most detailed and comprehensive documentary ever put together based on a film franchise.  It also kind of serves as a pseudo history lesson/doc on New Line Cinemas too.  This thing brings almost everybody cast and crew (Johnny Depp, Patricia Arquette and Laurence “Larry” Fishburne being the obvious absences) back to discuss at great length the journey from through all 7 films in the original franchise.  I love this documentary so much, I consider it the unofficial 8th entry in the series.  Everybody interviewed is very comfortable and unafraid to go all out with their testimonials.  The film flows very well and once you start you really can’t put it down.  I’ve actually watched this twice, believe it or not.  And I after I finish my marathoning of the series, this film feels like a must to finish it off.  The film comes out January 21st, and you can pre-order using the link below.  Also below, the nit and gritty details!
