As you may know, sadly trend-setting horror film director Wes Craven recently passed away.
It is only fitting that we pay tribute to him at the opening night of the 2015 
South African Horrorfest (Mon 26 Oct, 8:30pm, Labia Theatre) with a free screening of one of our Craven favourites (from his wide catalog of highly memorable and thrilling movies) - the first NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! 
It is not only the birth of Freddy Krueger, but also one of Johnny Depp's first roles!
This classic movie recently had its 30th anniversary.

Seats are limited - to secure yours, e-mail us at [email protected] with Nightmare On Elm Street in the subject, and tell us why you love Craven's movies.
