A Wes Craven double for the ages…all ages…well maybe not all ages but spanning generations! That’s right, Craven’s two films despite being over twelve years apart are among the most highly influential genre films of their respective decades and now you can catch them back-to-back!
About the films:
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET: Nancy is having nightmares about a frightening, badly-scarred figure who wears a glove with razor-sharp “finger knives”. She soon discovers that her friends are having similar dreams. When the kids begin to die, Nancy realizes that she must stay awake to survive. Uncovering the secret identity of the dream killer and his connection with the children of Elm Street, the girl plots to draw him out into the real world.
SCREAM: Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) has a lot on her plate. Its hard enough to be a teenager coming of age in todays world, let alone have a boyfriend (Skeet Ulrich) with raging hormones, a father whos life is one business trip after another – and still feel healthy when your mother was brutally murdered one year ago. Just when things start to be getting back to normal for Sidney and her friends, the small town of Woodsboro is once again plagued by a killer. Someone who is taking their love of scary movies one step too far. To survive they must follow the golden movie rules – don’t answer the phone, don’t leave the house, but most of all don’t SCREAM.
