Guest host Ralph Miller III, who worked overdue the scenes on Dream Warriors provides insights and many effects minutiae photos that are shown in the YouTube version of the podcast. Post-recording, the hairdo wants to sieve that Kevin Yagher was responsible for the Freddy Snake, and Mark Shostrom was in tuition of the Penelope Sudrow dummy that smashes into the Freddyvision TV.
With the success of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), pursuit the hair-trigger failure of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985), New line Cinema firmly cemented Freddy Krueger and A Nightmare on Elm Street as one of the most iconic horror franchises of its time. Not only does Dream Warriors full-length Robert Englund standing to outbreathe both humor and fear into Freddy Krueger but moreover the return of both Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon from the original. The mucosa moreover features Craig Wasson (Ghost Story) as the male lead and early mucosa roles for Patricia Arquette and Larry Fishburne. Frank Darabont (The Mist) and Bruce Wagner join Wes Craven on scripting chores and Chuck Russell (The Blob, The Mask) directs while Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet) provides the score – a winning combination of talent. Surely a Grue-Crew highly recommended selection with special effects by Greg Cannom, Doug Beswick, Mark Shostrom, Kevin Yagher, and more!
