About

Behind The Screams. Chapter 12, page 1.

Hey folks. My name is Mick Strawn and I was the Production Designer of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4. My sister and I were responsible for the look and feel of this renowned horror adventure, and we were ecstatic to build on all our hard work from NOES 3.

Mick Strawn, working hard.

From the junkyard set to the crave inn, from Sheila's death to Freddy’s demise (in the Freddy church), I helped design one of the most popular, iconic films of the 80’s. And I’ve teamed with horror author Blake Best to tell the amazing story of the making of NOES4!

Action!
Action!

This is a passion project for us, and we’ve interviewed almost 40 people who were THERE, including effects people, producers, actors, carpenters, props people, editors and musicians. We’re here to tell the big story!

A bug's life.

And with exclusive interviews from Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Rachel Talalay and even Bob Shaye and Renny Harlin, this is going to be the must have book for the NOES fan, as well as a primer for filmmaking to be passed to the next (and the next) generations.

If you have a passion for all things Nightmare, all things horror or all things film, this is the project for you! The book alone is an incredible adventure, but there’s more. Some of the amazing extras are, at $60, a thumb drive with the transcribed and edited interviews, a must read for the biggest fans. At $80 my friend Kurt Thomas is editing down the original recordings with the voices of Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Brooke Theiss, Bob Shaye and many more!

Rewards will come minus the blood.

Please join your passion with mine and buy my book and join our cause! If we make our goal, we have some exciting stretch goals to announce and I’ll start on the same amazing treatment for NOES3. That’s a promise!

Give the man a hand.
