Heather Langenkamp just celebrated her 50th birthday. Think about that for a minute: the final girl from that first Nightmare on Elm Street movie has been around for over five decades now. (Not to insult Ms. Langenkamp, of course, because she looks great.) Of course, three of those decades have been all about the legend of Freddy Krueger and talking about her big break in Wes Craven‘s seminal horror film. And not only has Langenkamp appeared in three of the eight Nightmare movies, she produced the quintessential documentary about the franchise, Never Sleep Again. This past weekend at the National Fan Expo, Langenkamp re-untied with co-stars Robert Englund and John Saxon to celebrate Freddy’s 30th birthday, and Nerd Bastards got a few minutes to pick her brain. You know, in a good way. (more…)
It was with a collective sigh of relief that fans expressed when Paramount and Nickelodeon decided to put their Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant (Alien) Turtles back on the shelf earlier this year, but still an opportunity exists to see a TMNT movie on the big screen sometime in the near future. The catch is it’s a documentary.
Independently made (in fact, they still need support and donations), Turtle Power charts the 25 year history of the franchise and includes some 60 interviews with several key figures connected to the Ninja Turtles including co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the voice cast of the original animated series, and Brian Henson, who was second unit director on the first, live-action Ninja Turtles movie.
All-in-all, this sounds like it could be the kind of fan splash that Never Sleep Again, the exhaustive documentary about A Nightmare on Elm Street was. Click on the teaser below and get seriously excited about what may come of Turtle Power.
