Obviously, I know I don’t own the rights to this property and what I’m basically writing would be considered fan fiction, but you don’t understand my love for the franchise. Don’t get me wrong, not every film in this series was a masterpiece, but the original vision that Wes Craven had and put together what Robert Englund did with the Freddy Krueger character. They created something so special and it was instrumental in why I fell in love with movies.
I want to write something that honors that original vision, but also puts some kind of twist on it. It will be something I can read and enjoy or maybe if I’m lucky enough I’ll get to use it as a writing sample. This is definitely a passion project. Right now, I’m reading two books to get inside of the minds of the people who were behind the original film and doing research on top of that. I absolutely can’t wait to start writing this project.
