FREDHEADS is directed by Paige Troxell, who credits A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET with saving her life. "In my darkest times I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home," gushes Troxell. "I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other."
