Foyle Film Festival is proud to present a programme of screenings as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films, a UK film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.

This programme of events will focus on the creatures which have haunted our screens and dreams for over a century. These choices will chart how the monsters of horror have made physical the anxieties of their times, and how we react when faced with the monster within.

Nightmare On Elm Street – Interactive Cinema Experience

Inspired by the teen-horror themes of Nightmare on Elm Street and the popularity of Stranger Things, this immersive screening experience will invite audiences to a slasher slumber party where our rogue teens will tell ghost stories and invite spirits and you to the party… but, not all is as it seems… and nightmares could be lurking around the corner. One, two, Freddy’s coming for you….



Teenager Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) must uncover the dark truth concealed by her parents after she and her friends become targets of the spirit of a serial killer with a bladed glove in their dreams, in which if they die, it kills them in real life.

“Craven creates a believable suburban world for his characters, who behave and act far more realistically and sympathetically than the [folks] who populated most slasher movies. And more importantly, the dream sequences are surreal and engrossing, giving the film an offbeat yet totally engaging feel.” – Eric Goldman, IGN.

1984. USA. Director: Wes Craven. Cast: Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp, Robert Englund,  John Saxon. Duration: 1hr 31mins. Cert: 18.
