There is nothing better to light a fire under my ass to write a review than a colossally disappointing remake of one of my favorite horror movies of all time. The remakes/re-imaginings of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, and Friday the 13th were all valid because they, for the most part, had fresh, imaginative takes on old school horror flicks. They used modern tools…
As we all know, the big screen remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street was released this weekend and every film fan and their mama is going to try to have themselves a movie marathon of the old series. Some of you may not be able to stomach those puns, but some how I did. Here are my dream scars. Side Note: Spoilers Below!
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.
What Worked: Barely anything. When it comes down to it, the best things about this movie were the kills. And anytime Freddy was actually on screen, which was a lot. But there were some parts of…
so I saw A Nightmare on Elm St. tonight and I have to say that I disagree with the review for the most part. I enjoyed it very much. I like Jackie Earle Haley more as Freddy than Robert Englund. There I said it and if you don't like it then you can piss off. Haley came across as a heartless murdering baby raping bastard who was completely unappologetic for who he was. He gave us a reason to be scared and be creeped out when he came on the screen. Sure they gave him a one liner or two in the…
The movie may be crap but the poster might still be cool, some people even hang them up on their wall but might not even like the movie just the poster. Anyway this is my 10 favourie ever movie posters. I have seen all these movies and liked them all except one (try to guess which) and even though some of them have nothing to do with the movie itself there still really cool to look at:
Excited for the Elm Street reboot? Even though it's not coming out until April, you can still catch up with the whole series on DVD and what better time to watch them than on Halloween. But with so many entries in the series, one can easily lose track of each one and forget which ones were actually good. So here are some quick reviews of all 8 movies.
The first Nightmare on Elm Street set the right tone. It introduced a bold and classic icon of horror, Freddy… Continue

With all the Horror remakes such as My Bloody Valentine, Jason (Friday the 13th), Texas Chainsaw Massacreand Mike Myers Halloween now we will get a new Freddy film but in this case no matter what is done there will be only ONE true
Freddy Kruger, Robert Englund.
So here is my take on what should be done because we all know by now that there is a new Nightmare on Elm Street on that way and anyone who is still in denial… Continue
(Note: Just to reiterate, this is just a rant, there are no flashy pictures or anything to hold your interests, I just had to say what I had to say as a movie watcher.)
What do I have to say about a genre I have all but given up watching movies from? The horror movie has been stripped of it's name, I am personally in favor of renaming it "bloody pulp" or "gibs galore". Where is the horror anymore? What kind of movie watching society have we devolved into that all we want in a "scary"… Continue
As most of us now know, Dimension Films and Rob Zombie are tackling a sequel to the 2007 horror remake Halloween. It seems as if they are confident enough to bring out Mike Myers for another killing rampage. Hollywood loves bringing iconic horror figures back for another run, even though they had enough camera time during the 1970's and 1980's. Also, it always seems to be the same concept: idiotic charecters who are brutally… Continue
