- Synopsis / Plot
- Actress Heather Lagenkamp, star of the first ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ film, is approached by New Line Cinema about the possibility of starring in a new ‘Elm Street’ sequel. She wavers in her decision. At the same time, she becomes increasingly worried about her son Dylan who has dreams of Freddy Krueger. Her husband is then killed in the same way that she dreamt about beforehand. ‘Elm Street’ creator Wes Craven tells her that the first ‘A Bightmare on Elm Street’ film unleashed an ancient evil. It is an evil that lies buried and can sometimes be given form by great storytellers. Watering it down via the sequels helped contain it but it is loose again now that the sequels have ended. As she gave life to the character of Nancy that defeated Freddy in the first film, the evil force is now coming after her using Dylan as a gateway.
