HARTFORD, Conn., April 5 (UPI) -- A former high school in Tolland, Conn., is serving as the shooting location for noted director Wes Craven's latest horror movie.
The "Nightmare on Elm Street" creator is among dozens of film workers setting up shop at the former Tolland High School to film the horror film "25/8," The Hartford (Conn.) Courant reported Saturday.
The story line involves a serial killer who hunts down a group of teenagers who were all born on the same day the criminal was said to have died.
Lucky Cricket Productions, Craven's cinematic company, has assured Tolland residents that despite the film's subject matter, no violent scenes will be filmed at the former high school.
Lucky Cricket officials have also pledged to use a fictional name for the town in the movie, the Courant said.
The presence of the film crew has some Tolland teenagers eyeing a chance to be an extra in the Hollywood production.
"Oh my God, that would be so cool," eighth-grader Amanda Bayard said of an possible extra role. "I have no problem with horror movies. I watch them all the time."
