Behind the Scenes: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

A NIghtmare on Elm Street (Kino)

Director Wes Craven (right) prepares to shoot the death scene of actress Amanda Wyss (left) in the original NIghtmare on Elm Street (1984). The pic comes from the blog Kino Images.

The effect of Wyss being dragged around the walls and ceiling was achieved by building the set on a rotating gimbal and bolting the furniture, set dressing and camera operator upside down.
