Owen (Kyle Sundgren) is a misguided and confused "method" actor. He has an audition coming up for the role of Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake of the horror classic 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'. His idea of researching for the role means he goes to his local diner and never breaks character. When he unexpectedly runs into his buddy, Sid (Ronnie Alvarez), he gets nothing but grief! Things get complicated when it turns out that his waitress, Jules (Jennifer Holloway), might just think he's cute. What is a method actor to do? Will he ask her out as Freddy Krueger or break character and do it as himself?
This was my final project when I was at Orange Coast College film school in Costa Mesa, CA. I was the writer, director, and I cast myself in the lead! I had a lot of help from my friends on the crew too. Big ups to Bernardo Pantoja for doing all the editing by himself!
I'd love to hear your feedback on the movie. Thank you for watching, and I hope you liked it!
