That first episode set its sights on the great Gary […]

Wes Craven’s Top 10 Nightmare Scenes

Master of horror Wes Craven was obviously well-known for creating the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise, but the man explored the nature of nightmares in more than just his Freddy Krueger films.

5 Actors We’d Like to See Play Freddy Krueger

Successfully replacing Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger is likely an impossibility. Jackie Earle Haley did a marvelously frightening job as the scarred slayer of children in Samuel Bayer’s 2010 remake. The problem was the movie was a mess, and the beats consistently missed with one act bleeding into another. It was a wreck, but it […]

How Wes Craven’s Porno Predicted His Entire Filmography

If you’re a hardcore Wes Craven fan, you have to be willing to let things get a bit… well, hardcore. It’s a well-known fact that the master of horror spent many of his early years in the 70’s New York film scene editing and producing pornography, but there exists only one film that actually gives […]

New Book Chronicles The Long Road To FREDDY VS JASON!

If there’s one thing I love more than anything, it’s the stories behind “unmade horror” projects. We’re run several articles about this in the past, such as the one about THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT 2, or the lost version of HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE intended to be an anthology, or the third feature in THE […]

A Definitive Ranking of the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS Teens

If you didn’t want to feel old today, I have some bad news. Next week is the 30th anniversary of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS. The classic horror sequel which some fans argue is even better than the original (wrongly, but I respect their temerity) hit theaters in 1987 like a cannonball, raking […]

Robert Englund Returns One Last Time As Freddy For Documentary NIGHTMARES IN THE MAKEUP CHAIR

It’s been a long, long time since we’ve seen a cinematic outing with everyone’s favorite night-stalking boogeyman, Freddy Krueger. And it’s been 14 years since Robert Englund, who originated the role, donned the infamous glove in FREDDY VS JASON. We were all hoping Englund would give us one more Freddy movie, one way or another.

Wes Craven and the Sins of the Parents

Any horror fan worth their weight in red-dyed Karo syrup knows the name of Wes Craven. The late horror master managed to change the face of horror three decades in a row. In 1972, he took the genre to a new, raw plane with a low-budget, exploitation-flavored remake of Ingmar Bergman’s THE VIRGIN SPRING called LAST HOUSE […]
