The evolution of the fan film has been a wonderful thing to witness over the last few years – they’ve gone from thrown-together weekend warrior projects to polished, well-produced love letters to iconic films, and the latest franchise to get some attention is Wes Craven’s NEW NIGHTMARE and it comes via the Horror Show Channel & Womp Stomp Films. DYLAN’S NEW NIGHTMARE stars Miko Hughes – who played Dylan in the original NEW NIGHTMARE and returns to continue the saga of poor Dylan.
The project just debuted – it’s pretty great, and you can check it out in the embed below.
Dave McRae plays Freddy – and does a stellar job, in my opinion.
