Script For A Nightmare On Elm Street Prequel Surfaces And It Contains A Big Twist

We all know the story of Wes Craven’s 1984 horror classic A Nightmare On Elm Street. Terrifying dream demon Freddy Krueger stalks the teenagers of Springwood through their slumber – torturing them to death in gory and disturbing ways before they wake. Freddy (originally played by Robert Englund) is one of the most iconic villains of modern cinema – with his red and green striped jumper, knifed glove, and burned visage. But that first film is also notable for the way in which it dealt with the killer’s origin story.

‘Versailles’ Breaks Drama Launch Ratings on Ovation TV
Paris — “Versailles,” the lush and sultry French period drama from Simon Mirren (“Criminal Minds”) and David Wolstencroft (“Spooks”) about King Louis Xiv, has become the most-watched telecast to date on Ovation TV in the U.S.

Ovation TV, the arts-focus cabler, rolled out the first two episodes of the show at 10 p.m. on Oct. 1. The premiere pulled in a total combined audience of 557K viewers, and tripled the network’s average prime time audience in the adults 25 to 54 category, according to Nielsen. It marked the network’s highest-rated drama premiere.

The cable network did not rely solely on positive word-of-mouth from Europe to make it happen: They flew in key cast members — George Blagden (who plays the king), Alexander Vlahos and Noémie Schmidt — along with co-creators/exec producers Mirren and Wolstencroft to participate in a creative promotional tour across the East Coast. The one-week campaign included social/digital support and live events in Washington and New
