    “Screw your hall pass.”

    The Halloweenies have arrived in Springwood, Ohio and they’re very sleepy. So sleepy, in fact, that they’re all going to take a nap in their spooky, rickety AirBnb. The address? 1428 Elm Street. The time? Midnight.

    Join Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, senior writer Justin Gerber, contributing writer McKenzie Gerber, and writer/filmmaker Lara Unnerstall as they go deep into the proverbial boiler room of 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street.

    Together, they discuss everything within Wes Craven’s iconic slasher, from Johnny Depp’s midriff to all the crazy special effects to whether or not the ending truly works. It’s the beginning of a new season — a new nightmare!


    So, brew up some coffee and listen above.
