In a new age where classic horror movies now date back to the 80s , a great way to introduce these films unfortunately is to remake them. You see this being done now more times than often. Last year , we saw a revamp of the now classic 1984 A Nightmare On Elm Street. Now with this happening most of the stars from the orignal films have been surfacing a horror conventions all over the world. It is a smart idea IMO. Why not? It is a good way to show the youth the original and how it is superior IMO to the newer additions. Now with that being said , to coiencide with the movies , many docuemntarys are seeing the light of day. Some work and some don’t . I Am Nancy is a docuementarty that does work.
I am Nancy follows the life of Heather Langenkamp. Heather’s is most know for her role as Nancy Thompson , the original heroine in A Nightmare On Elm Street. Heather and film crew capture her meeting fans and asking herself , ” Freddymania? Why not Nancymania?! ” You follow her through a candid yet personal journey though the convention scene. Along the way , we do see some familar faces like NOES creator Wes Craven , Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) and some cast members from the original , Dream Warriors and New Nightmare. We also see the fans and they are asked the question as well. ” Is Nancy marketable like Freddy?” Seeing the fan reactions and vendors are pretty funny and make this documentary all that better. What really is great is seeing how NOES has become a classic horror movie and how Robert Englund has made a memorable monster. Oh wait… there I go talking about Freddy … Sorry Heather , I guess this fan answered your question. 3 Stars
