Watch Nightmare on Elm Street Prequel : KRUEGER

Herner Klenthur

Filmmaker Chris Notarile has just sent over his newest short film called ‘Krueger’ and it pays tribute to one of our all time favorite horror icons Freddy Krueger.

In Springwood, long before he became a demon of dreams, Freddy Krueger stalked the streets under another name – The Springwood Slasher. Our third story centers on the inner working’s of Freddy’s mind. What makes him tick and how does he view the world? Edited to reflect his fragmented way of thinking, we follow Freddy on a walk through Elm Street as he interacts with a soon to be mother, outside of a very familiar house.

Checkout the fan film below which was made as a project of love and share it with your friends. Given its limited budget and resources it is an impressive tale that is heavy on creepy if all be a bit light on real action. Either way a job well done and certainly better than most of us can do!

          well said. If we keep crapping on indie filmmakers what will motivate them to innovate?

        Not too bad. It had it’s good & bad points. Look & feel overall were both great though!!! I’d LOVE to see a PREQUEL to the whole series someday,….but ONLY with Robert Englund having a part in it! As he’s the ONLY real FRED K.!

      18. Liz Byrne January 6, 2014 at 7:12 am

        Pretty cool … and the actor actually did a great job as freddy as I firmly believe their will only be one freddy and that is robert englund … deff a cool video if your a nightmare fan … wish they would make a full length movie on freddy before he was killed .. thatd be awesome if the right people got their hands on itt !! Long live freddddy :)

        Stephen I agree But we have to understand he is getting older.
        It’s not as easy to make a older man look so much younger versus a younger man to older!

        That was cool!
