“We wanted to add another Halloween-type title to our portfolio as Happy Halloween was released in 2015. Films from the 1980s such as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th are making the rounds on Netflix, so we thought it was about time to add another spooky slot to our repertoire. Plus, we’re big fans of 1980s music.”
