A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST / THE VILLAGE: American Dream (ft. Emily Bennett)

Spread the love

Ah, the American Dream: a suburban home with a white picket fence, green grass, and the perfect nuclear family. Until… ding dong! It’s the boogeyman! Filmmaker Emily Bennett (Alone With You) joins David and Devin to discuss false utopias, the repercussions of repression, and why you should always face your fears.

The Dogs take on Freddy Kreuger once again in the original A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, written and directed by Wes Craven. And then tackle M. Night Shyamalan’s classic THE VILLAGE – with a twist (obviously).
