Bloody Disgusting took over the SCREAMBOX streaming service earlier this year and our first order of business was to bring the official A Nightmare on Elm Street television series “Freddy’s Nightmares” to streaming FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. It’s been our honor to present the 1980s series to many fans who had literally never been able to see it before.
But all good things eventually come to an end…
We’re here to inform you today that “Freddy’s Nightmares” – all 44 episodes of the series starring Robert Englund – will be leaving SCREAMBOX this Sunday, August 14, 2022.
You have one more week to stream the series, so make the most of it!
Based on one of horror’s most storied franchises, “Freddy’s Nightmares” is an anthology series starring the original Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund. Airing from 1988 to 1990, each episode tells a different story of a dark rooted and grim nature that takes place in this fictitious town on Elm Street; the same setting as the A Nightmare on Elm Street films.
The series picks up with where the films left off, with Krueger terrorizing the citizens of his hometown and taking his revenge out through their dreams.
The producers of the series cast a slew of unknown names who later became very notable actors including Brad Pitt, Lori Petty, John Cameron Mitchell and Mariska Hargitay.
The pilot episode, “No More Mr. Nice Guy”, acts as a prequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and was directed by the late Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist). Other notable filmmakers include Mick Garris (Critters 2, Sleepwalkers), William Malone (Scared to Death, House on Haunted Hill), and Tom McLoughlin (Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives). Robert Englund directed the episodes “Cabin Fever” and “Monkey Dreams”.
