A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dreamspawn
A Nightmare on Elm Street: Suffer the Children is a 2005 novel written by David Bishop and published by Black Flame.
It is the first in a series of five novels.
It, and the second and third novels in the same series, were later reprinted in 2006 in the compilation Ripped from a Dream: A Nightmare on Elm Street Omnibus.
From your worst nightmare strides Freddy Krueger, the fedora-wearing, razor-glove wielding legend of the big screen! In the first in a brand new series of further adventures, the cult icon that is Freddy once again prowls the dreams of the teenagers of Elm Street.
When six volunteers test an anti-insomnia drug, they get much more than they bargained for when they are thrust into the dream realm - a playground for the bastard son of a hundred maniacs.
- It contains the line, "Your mouth says no, but your eyes say yes.", which was changed slightly (to "Your mouth says no, but your body says yes.") for the 2010 reboot 5 years later.
- Freddy Krueger is depicted as... kind of a weirdo...
- It is stated that Springwood has a Dirt Cheap.
- Nancy Holbrook from the 2010 reboot is partially based on Alex.
