Brief Synopsis:
My goal here was mostly just to tighten up the editing & remove filler.
The altered ending of NoES [raymix] helps bridge the story together.
Intention:
This project aims to bring stronger continuity, tighter editing & improved pacing to 6 of the films in the Nightmare on Elm Street movie series.

Editing Details:
I tried to stay true to Terry Stokes & Chuck Weiss' editing style from the original film. I didn't want anything to seem changed or altered at all.
This mostly meant sharp, quick cutting & trying to keep the energy high.
