‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Fandom Doc ‘FredHeads’ Gets Poster & Teaser

A Nightmare on Elm Street has been terrifying viewers since the debut of the first franchise film in 1984. Since then, the franchise has created a total of seven franchise title films, a Friday the 13th crossover, a 2010 reboot and numerous documentaries. No matter how terrifying the films may be, fans love Freddy, his legendary one-liners and his gruesome kills. A new fandom documentary, FredHeads, has gotten a poster and a teaser and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help finish production.

The main focus of FredHeads analyzes how being a fan can change your life. Filmmakers have been traveling the country to speak to fellow fans and filmmakers. Director Paige Troxell credits the Nightmare film franchise for saving her life stating:

“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.”

The documentary also includes interviews with franchise alumni Lisa Wilcox, Robert Kurtzman, Tuesday Night, Miko Hughes, Ricky Dean Logan and more.

Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures have started a campaign via Indiegogo to help raise the remaining funds needed to finish production. Perks for contributing to the campaign include pre-order of the limited edition DVD to ensure backers see the documentary first, t-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks and one-of-a-kind perks from franchise alumni, including prop replicas signed by Freddy himself, Robert Englund.

Jen and Sylvia Soska have been blazing a path for women in the horror industry since the release of Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Since that release, they have gone on to make even more goretastic films such as American Mary and See No Evil 2; they are even hosting their own horror survival game show on GSN called Hellevator (also available on Netflix). There doesn’t appear to be any stopping the Twisted Twins, and we’re all just fine with that. Horror t-shirt company, Terror Threads, has teamed with the Soska sisters to bring a new line of officially licensed merch.

The Soska collection includes t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, cellphone cases and slipmats. It features two stunning designs, Stitched (artwork by horror artist Joel Robinson and is black light reactive) and Double Trouble (artwork by Toto6 x Ama Lea).

T-shirts start at $26 and are available in both men’s (sizes small-5XL) and women’s (sizes small-2XL) cuts. Baseball tees start at $36 and are available in adult sizes small-3XL. The most popular item from the Soska sisters collection appears to be the hoodies which have already sold out in both designs, but further expressed interest in them may bring a new listing of them.

The Soska Collection will not last long, get yours at TerrorThreads.com before they are gone. While you are there, you can will also find collections from films like Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Puppet Master, Sleepaway Camp and more as well as amazing original designs.
