Synopsis

Wes Craven double bill. 'Wes Craven's New Nightmare' is a coda to the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series that, written and directed by the creator Wes Craven, mixes fact and fiction to scare us witless. Craven and his producer play themselves, persuading the now grown up Heather Langenkamp (of the first film) to return to Elm Street one more time. She and Robert Englund are lured back to play their characters again, but this time they cannot walk away from them when they leave the film set at the end of the day. In 'Carnival of Souls', Alex Grant is haunted by a horrific event from her past: twenty years before, circus clown Louis Seagram had befriended her family, only to murder her mother in a psychopathic frenzy, whilst Alex watched on. Although Seagram is supposedly safely behind bars, Alex is still prey to terrifying flashbacks and hallucinations, and fears that they may be turning into reality.
