Neil (J.Michael Weiss) has bad dreams every night in which he is pursued by Freddy Krueger (Bradley J.Roddy) - yup, exactly the one from the Nightmare on Elm Street-series. Then though Neil teams up with his two friends Eugene (Jason Cook) and Ed (Tim Johnson), and they form the Ghostbusters, before long becoming a raving success for hunting ghosts all over Denver. To be with the team, Neil has moved out of his old appartment, and wouldn't you know it, the nightmares have stopped - which makes Ed figure that Freddy Krueger must live in Neil's mattress, and they decide to go after Freddy.

Meanwhile though, Neil's useless roommate Chuck (Bradley Griffith) has started sleeping in Neil's bed, has started to have Neil's nightmares - and has been killed by Freddy Krueger.

The Ghostbusters now decide to burn Neil's old mattress, and against all odds, this works just fine ... but only because Freddy has since left the mattress and found a new home in Nancy (Elizabeth Hogan), Chuck's girlfriend and the woman Neil has been secretly in love with for years. To save Nancy, whom Freddy keeps in a state of permanent trance, the Ghostbusters decide to enter the dreamworld ... but it's not until they can drag Freddy back into the real world that they can dispose of him by locking him inside one of their ghost boxes ...

 

You might have guessed it, this is not an official sequel of either the Nightmare on Elm Street- or the Ghostbusters-series but rather a fanmovie, and it's not feature-length either bur clocks inat just over half an hour. And what can I say, for a fan movie it is pretty well done, direction, camerawork and lighting are slick as can be, the actors are maybe not great but adequate, and the special effects (both analog and digital) are on a professional level. That said though, what's bothering about the film is that despite a promising concept, it's simply not very funny, definitely less funny than either the Ghostbusters- or the Nightmare on Elm Street-series - which is a bit of a pity considering the effort that was put into the film.

 

By the way, the film is available for free download from its production company's website, http://www.braxtanfilm.com, and even if the film is not perfect, for this price it is definitely worth a look.
