New Line Cinema’s A Nightmare on Elm Street remake is now in theaters everywhere, but it wasn’t an easy production. Those of you keeping up with the production might have noticed some major changes in the script, and film itself. The movie originally opened with a house party and the kids playing rock band (footage from the first trailer shows someone falling out of a window). Then there were multiple removed dream sequences (one involving a dream version of “Elm Street”, a possessed dog, along with a scene where Freddy “unzips” out of Quentin’s body), and even a new ending. Not to mention missing scenes during the “micro naps” sequences. There’s a whole movie within a movie to say the least. Will we see it on DVD/Blu-ray? I hope so. For those of you who want to get a better idea of what’s missing, all you have to do is read on and reflect back to our 4-part set visit report. You’ll find details, images and a video from the set of one of the removed scenes.
