When Jason Fought Leatherface… In The Comics!

Back in 2003, FRIDAY THE 13TH’s Jason Voorhees’ may have fought A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’s Freddy Krueger on the big screen for the long-in-the-making FREDDY VS JASON, but believe it or not, this wasn’t the first time the hockey masked maniac had gone up against one of his contemporaries.

As a lifelong buyer of toys, my office is absolutely cluttered with collectibles, so much so that I’m literally surrounded by my favorite horror characters every time I sit down to write.

Of all the sub-genres within the horror world, the “slasher” is definitely one of the most intriguing and appealing to a young, budding horror fan; if anything, because of the simplicity in its formula. Whereas some of the bigger studio fare like THE EXORCIST or POLTERGEIST or THE CHANGELING focused on well-crafted supernatural stories, and Universal […]

How To Dream Like WES CRAVEN

Wes Craven expanded the consciousness of the horror genre by literally following his dreams.  Some of the most memorable details in his films reportedly came to the filmmaker in his sleep—including the Beauty and the Beast motif in THE HILLS HAVE EYES, the snake-in-the-bathtub scene in DEADLY BLESSING  (later re-imagined in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM […]

Revisiting The UNCUT Version Of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5: THE DREAM CHILD

I have a confession to make. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5: THE DREAM CHILD made me cry. And not for the reasons you might think. By the time the 4th sequel in the NIGHTMARE franchise was about to shoot, I was already a full blown Freddy fanatic. Whereas I got to see the first […]

The continued popularity of Freddy Krueger and the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise never ceases to amaze me. That series was not only such a huge part of the latter 80’s, but it really made a massive impression on the pop culture zeitgeist. Hence, even to this day with no movie in sight, people […]

In Defense of FREDDY’S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE!

Freddy Krueger has always been my horror hero. Unlike many of the muted madmen in the slasher genre, such as Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, Freddy was extremely vocal about his kills. He didn’t just terrify his victims with physical pain, he got into their heads as well. While A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET started […]
