Back in 1991, New Line Cinema decided that the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise had run its course. So they tried to kill it off with Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (watch it HERE). More than thirty years later, John “The Arrow” Fallon and Lance Vlcek have decided to revisit Freddy’s Dead for the latest episode of The Arrow in the Head Show. Check it out in the embed above!

Directed by Rachel Talalay, who also crafted the story with New Line executive Michael De Luca, Freddy’s Dead has the following synopsis:

Murderous ghoul Freddy Krueger has slaughtered every last child in his hometown. He ventures on to a new location, scouting fresh young victims to hack up with his finger blades. He arrives in a small town in which his long-lost daughter, Maggie, works as a therapist for troubled youths. He attempts to recruit her for his dastardly pursuits, but she has other ideas. Father and daughter meet for a bloody showdown that will determine Freddy’s fate once and for all.

The film stars Lisa Zane, Shon Greenblatt, Lezlie Deane, Yaphet Kotto, Breckin Meyer, and Ricky Dean Logan, with cameo appearances by Johnny Depp, Roseanne, and Tom Arnold. And of course, Freddy Krueger is played by Robert Englund.

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.
