Most people who watch the A Nightmare On Elm Street films see Freddy Krueger for what he is- an evil bastard who enjoys killing innocent people and turning life in Springwood into hell on Earth.
But some twisted fans see Freddy as a dream come true, a guy worthy of worship and the inspiration for a legion of fans who call themselves "Fredheads".
They have good dreams about Freddy, dress up like him at Cons and idolize him, and now these Freddy superfans are the focus of an upcoming documentary by Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures called FredHeads: The Documentary.
FredHeads is a pet project of director Paige Troxell, who wanted to show her fellow Freddy fans they're not alone:
“In my darkest times I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home,” gushes Troxell. “I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other.”
