In 1984, Wes Craven firmly challenged the notion that things will be better in the morning with A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Though Robert Englund’s Freddy gets all the credit, Heather Langenkamp’s Nancy Thompson character is one of the most memorable and strongest scream queens in horror history. Not to mention every bit as critical to the success of the series as everyone’s favorite burn victim.

Langenkamp took a few moments out of a hectic schedule for a telephone chat with iHorror to discuss Robert Englund’s influence on her as an actress, recurring nightmares, criticisms of modern horror and re-makes, Johnny Depp, finding a balance between professional and personal endeavors and her work with AFX Studio today.
