Here are two pieces of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” trivia for you: (1) when I first started in the movie business one of the theatres in Baltimore that I worked at sold more tickets to the original film than any other theatre in the country and (2) I was amazed when the films’ creator, Wes Craven, told me that he had based the story off of a real event. FYI: I was also surprised when Craven told me that the late, great Harry Chapin had given him his start in the movies. As you can see, the original film and I have shared a lot of history these past 26 years. Now comes what the studios call a “reboot” of “Elm Street”…new but sadly not improved, for this generation.
