A FOUR-HOUR documentary about the “Nightmare on Elm Street” films. 

That seems like an awful long time to spend on the ins and outs of a wildly inconsistent franchise. 

However, there is a lot of affection for Freddy and his victims out there, and I must say, they did a very good job on this film, even though FOUR HOURS is a long time to invest for even the most rabid fan. 

I got through by watching it in manageable chunks. 

Since it is conveniently divided into a 20-30 minute section for each film from the original to “Freddy vs. Jason” (including the short-lived TV series that I had completely forgotten about), it is probably best viewed as a companion to a rewatch of the series. 

If you love the franchise, you will probably appreciate it more than I did. 

By the way, did I mention that it is FOUR HOURS long?
