They're almost at goal for Never Sleep Again...
If you're a Nightmare on Elm Street fan then you either have seen or should see the 1428 Films documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy. The documentary, which was released on DVD in 2010 and Blu-Ray in January, is a favorite among many 411 staff (you can see reviews of the DVD and Blu-Ray here and here, respectively). Now the makers of the documentary are looking to make a book version of the documentary and have turned to Kickstarter for funding.
The book, titled Never Sleep Again: The Making of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is described on the site as "a lavish and comprehensive account of the seminal shocker that launched what many have called the best, most frightening and imaginative horror franchise in motion picture history." It will include new interviews as well as previously-unseen photographs, storyboards, conceptual drawings, publicity materials, archival documents and other materials.
The Kickstarter has reached, as of this writing, $51,961 out of $65,000 needed with three days left. You can donate to the project here at various reward levels.
