With any horror film that strikes a chord with the audience and has them flocking to the theatres, it is always tempting to build on the successes of the first film and make a sequel, or two, or three and the next thing you know you have a full blown franchise on your bloodied hands. While many donâ€™t quite carry the same level quality all the way through an oft-elongated series of films, these five … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: A teenage boy is haunted in his dreams by Freddy Krueger who is out to possess him to continue his murdering in the real world. REVIEW: In 1985, hot off the tail off the successful release of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” came the rather odd follow up “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge“. That notion wasn’t too big of surprise with horror maven Wes Craven “not” helming the rig this round. … Continue reading

Trailer: A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010) Trailer 2 A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.
You know the term well. The dreaded re-make! We are certainly in an era of history repeating itself. Though as in this list, history doesn’t always mean better. This list of turds is our tribute to the worst of the remakes to come along in the horror genre. As an incentive, many of these movies spawn from the influence of great films. So while they may not be up to par, the films they were … Continue reading
Also see Top 20 Scariest Movies of All Time – Part 1 11- [REC] (both 1 and 2) A forefront winner in the cinema verite category that engages the user much like a video game might. The things that pop out and attack the camera are damn creepy and frightful to behold. The American film “Quarantine” was a direct copy, but lacked some of the original appeal. This goes to show that foreign films are … Continue reading
I realize that different things scare different people. I am scared to death of clowns, monkeys, and robots (God help me if I am ever attacked by a robot dressed like a clown that has a pet monkey with it, while these things may not bother anyone else in the least little bit. The same thing can be said about movies. I know a lot of people who were really freaked out by â€śThe Blair … Continue reading
Â SYNOPSIS: In the autobiographical I AM NANCY, the focus is squarely on Heather Langenkamp and her unique experience playing Wes Craven’s legendary teen heroine Nancy Thompson. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Heather asks the burning question: “Why Freddymania, and not Nancymania?” After personally experiencing the Freddy Krueger marketing craze, the rise of horror convention fandom and the phenomenon of eight Nightmare On Elm Street films, Heather reflects on the relevance of heroes in … Continue reading
It would appear that the mighty Freddy Krueger is about to be beaten by his greatest nemesis of all: Apathy. Initial reviews of the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street are not all that favourable, and each new one I see seems to cement the opinion that this was a big mistake even further. It was a done deal to bring icons like Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Michael Myers back to the big screen, … Continue reading

Movies have been a part of my existence pretty much since day one and that also included horror movies.Â I’m not sure what the hell my parents were thinking- maybe it was because they were kids raising kids- but my earliest motion picture memories had Mrs. Voorhees stalking camp counselors, Jack Torrance chasing his wife and son through a hotel with an ax, and Max fending off the mohawked followers of Lord Humongous alongside Luke … Continue reading
SYNOPSIS: A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality. REVIEW:Â I was ready to hate “A Nightmare On Elm Street”. I really was. How could a film of this pedigree be remade & be as potent & terrifying as the original? Especially with the demon known as Michael Bay … Continue reading
