Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994)
Wes Craven's New Nightmare is a 1994 horror metafilm written and directed by original creator Wes Craven who wrote and directed the original Nightmare On Elm Street film. Although it is the seventh installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, it is not part of the series continuity, instead portraying Freddy Krueger as a fictional movie villain who invades the real world and haunts the cast and crew responsible for his films. In this film, Freddy is depicted as closer to what Craven originally intended, being more menacing and less comical, with a greatly updated attire and appearance. The film features various people involved in the motion picture industry playing themselves, including actress Heather Langenkamp who is compelled by events in the narrative to reprise her role as Nancy Thompson. New Nightmare features several homages to the original film. A dirty, work-worn pair of hands is creating a sleek, fully metal bladed glove in a boiler room.
