A Nightmare on Elm Street

A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality


The Solution


Wake up in Los Angeles and attend the annual spine-chilling ShriekFest awards.  For a few nights in October, LA plays host to the scariest horror festival around. Rub shoulders with the cream of the shock movie world at this exclusive event.
Don’t fall asleep! Make use of a festival pass for the entire extravaganza, head into the dead centre of town and prepare to be very afraid.
After the Shriekfest awards, travel to the heart of the action on the Warner Bros VIP studio tour.  Stories from the back lot streets will both thrill and, in some cases, chill, as you explore the history of this legendary working studio.
Then stay awake long into the night for the Dearly Departed tour, an up close and personal encounter with Hollywood’s illustrious folklore.  From the most foul of murders to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the final resting place of the rich and famous, it’s an experience not for the faint-hearted.
