Nightmare on Barrington's Elm Street

 

From flying kites to Freddy Krueger, we cover the warm, the fuzzy and the totally terrifying here at 365Barrington.com. Tonight’s the night we’ve been waiting for, when Barrington’s Jewel Park neighborhood hits the big screen. Hollywood movie crews descended on Barrington last year to film portions of the new Nightmare on Elm Street in our town. They paid some homeowners to film on their properties and even hired Barrington High School students as extras. The slasher film remake opens tonight in theaters around the world and it makes #31 on our list of 365 Things to do in and Around Barrington. Here’s a peek at the movie trailer.

 

I’m making an exception and posting today and tomorrow’s “things to do” in one day because I want to give you a heads up about both the movie opening and the Barrington Community Kite Fly tomorrow. If you’re feeling like a little Barrington-based freak-out tonight, you’ll find a list of local theaters playing A Nightmare on Elm Street and movie times by clicking HERE. And here’s a quick synopsis:

A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another, but when they sleep, there is no escape.

A group of Barrington High School students even parodied the making of the movie last year. Their video is pretty funny, clever, creative and aptly titled A Nightmare at Barrington High:

I hear the movie is not for the faint of heart, so be warned and welcome to your new nightmare!
