The Arrow in the Head Show delves into Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

by Natalie Kiser

On the previous episode of The Arrow in the Head Show , John “The Arrow” Fallon and Lance Vlcek took a look back at New Line Cinema’s 1991 attempt to end the Nightmare on Elm Street series, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. New Line quickly re-thought their decision to do away with Freddy and contacted Elm Street creator Wes Craven to ask if he had any ideas on how to continue the franchise. The result was the 1994 film Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (get it HERE) – and The Arrow and Lance are discussing that one in the new episode of The Arrow in the Head Show, which you can watch in the embed above!

Written and directed by Craven, New Nightmare has the following synopsis:

Reality and fantasy meet in unsettling ways in this installment of the long-running horror series, which finds director Wes Craven and actors Heather Langenkamp and Robert Englund all portraying themselves. As Heather considers making another film with Craven, her son, Dylan, falls under the spell of the iconic disfigured villain Freddy Krueger. Eventually, Langenkamp must confront Freddy’s demonic spirit to save the soul of Dylan.

Craven, Langenkamp, and Englund are joined in the cast by Miko Hughes, John Saxon, Tracy Middendorf, David Newsom, and Fran Bennett.

Here’s some information on The Arrow in the Head Show:

We’re trying something a bit new here on Arrow In The Head. After many years behind the scenes, we’ve decided to take our sarcastic, booze-influenced style into the video age with  The   Arrow In The Head Show ! Hosted by John Fallon aka The Arrow and Lance Vlcek, we will dig into not only the newest horror flicks hitting the big and small screens but also delve into the good, bad, and ugly of horror from the golden ages of the ’80s through the underrated 90s and maybe a bit beyond.

Something groovy and a tad rough around the edges, we are here to talk shop with a drink in hand, a bit of foul language, and a whole lot of heart.

This episode of the show was Edited by Lance, and it was Written by The Arrow and Lance.
