Whatever you do, don't fall asleep.
The fest will screen the 1987 classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, in honor of the movie's 30th anniversary on June 3 at Underground Arts. Series star Heather Langenkamp (Nancy Thompson) will be on hand for live commentary, and will do a Q&A following the film.
Directed by Chuck Russell (1994's The Mask), Dream Warriors follows series protagonist Nancy Thompson (Langenkamp) and her friends as they battle against Krueger (Robert Englund) in the third installment of the series. A fan favorite, the movie is often considered to be a better flick than the initial Wes Craven-directed Nightmare on Elm Street installment, and is credited with injecting some humor into the Krueger character.
Organized by Wizard World, Inc. and Bloody-Disgusting.com, the Wizard World Horror Fest will also feature screenings of 1992's Buffy the Vampire Slayer (with star Kristy Swanson as special guest), and 1987's The Monster Squad (Gower and Lambert will also attend). The horror festival will be run in tandem with the Wizard Wold Comic Con.
