Episode 81. What Makes Springwood Famous: The Nightmare Series

nightmareIn an episode three years in the making, Derrick does for Freddy Krueger what Tom did for Michael Myers by examining the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street ouvre, from the absolutely classic first entry through the rather goofy end to the attempts to recreate the series in Wes Craven’s New Nightmare and the monster rally Freddy vs. Jason! Along the way, The Guys Outta Brooklyn discuss the importance of Robert Englund in creating this horror icon, how Wes Craven attempted to kill the franchise repeatedly, and how the films, as bad as they got, never lost money. Plus, we find a connection between the series and the ultra-obscure Adam Sandler vehicle The Unsinkable Shecky Moskowitz, address a great disservice done to Curtis Mayfield, and do something at the very end of the episode that might upset our friend Kelen “B-Hyphen” Conley. Every town has an Elm Street, so get to clicking!
