Friday The 13th fans witnessed not only one of the best film documentaries ever created last year with Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th, but THE best comprehensive book on a film franchise ever created with Peter Bracke's book of the same name back in 2005. Such creative minds cannot be contained as many of the same people who created the Friday The 13th documentary also produced the definitive look at the A Nightmare On Elm Street series with Never Sleep Again in 2010. Well, why stop at only a documentary for Freddy Krueger?
We just found out today that Crystal Lake Memories producer Thommy Hutson has been working on a new comprehensive book detailing the production of A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)! The project has been over two years in the making, with Peter Bracke himself aiding in the layout of the new book titled Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy--The Making of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street. In order for the book to be published independantly, Thommy and the team behind the new book need your help. Visit their Kickstarter Page for more details. Below is new artwork for the book by Nathan Thomas Milliner!
