The crowdfunding campaigns allow fans to pre-order a limited edition DVD of the documentary, ensuring that they will be among the first to see FredHeads. T-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks, and sunglasses are among the available merchandise. One-of-a-kind perks from Elm Street alumni are also up for grabs, including prop replicas signed by Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.
FredHeads is directed by Paige Troxell, who credits A Nightmare on Elm Street with saving her life. “In my darkest times, I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home,” gushes Troxell. “I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other.”
The FredHeads team loves to hear from fellow fans, so be sure to visit http://facebook.com/FredHeadsDoc to find out how you can submit your story.
As a FredHead myself, I’m even more stoked for this project after reading the details and hearing Paige Troxell’s story. The perks are affordable and something every fan will want. This is going to be amazing and I hope everyone participates. FredHeads unite!
