I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Paige Troxell, the creator, director, editor, and producer of FredHeads: The Documentary. Following several hardcore A Nightmare on Elm Street fans and featuring stories from hundreds of others of all ages from across the globe, FredHeads explores just how much fans love the franchise and how it has changed their lives by inspiring them to conquer their fears (a.k.a. their “Freddys”), find themselves, and follow a new path in life. Cast, crew, and others involved in the franchise also offer insight into the legacy of A Nightmare on Elm Street. You can watch my interview with Paige below. Enjoy!

Mad God, the epic stop-motion masterpiece that Phil Tippett spent the last 30 years making, debuted June 16 and quickly became Shudder’s most-watched movie premiere of 2022. The film’s huge premiere comes a week after Mad God’s highly successful theatrical release from IFC Midnight in New York and Los Angeles, coinciding with its expansion to an additional 24 screens across North America. Mad God has been a hit with critics too, hailed as one of the best horror movies of the year and already Certified Fresh® at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Shudder, AMC Network’s premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, has acquired rights to the documentary. This is GWAR, which gives rare insight into the 30-plus year career of one of the world’s most outrageous heavy metal bands, GWAR, known for their grotesque costumed characters and notoriously wild, fluid-soaked stage shows.
