Weekend Levity – Watch Rapper Froggy Fresh’s “Nightmare On My Street”

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 […]

Five Horror Movies That Need The MST3K Treatment

There are few shows that are as perfect as MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. It is a show that you can watch alone or with friends. A show that you can watch in bite sized bits if you’re one of those weird busy people, or in long stretches for hours at a time if, like me, […]

Ghostface Vs The Fisherman! Who Was YOUR Favorite 90’s “Slasher” Icon?

When it comes to analyzing the horror “slasher” cycle that came in the late ’90s, the undisputed champ has to be Wes Craven’s genre defining 1996 classic SCREAM. Amazing, when you think that Craven managed to redefine 3 different decades of horror with a single film. But in the wake of SCREAM came, of course, […]

Let’s Go Back To The ’90s For I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER And I STILL KNOW!

I’m so fascinated by that era of 90’s horror that followed in the wake of SCREAM’s success. I was too young to really be there for the “slasher” boom of the 80’s, although I did get to see some of the latter FRIDAY THE 13TH, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and HALLOWEEN sequels in theaters towards […]

Did You Know There’s A HILLS HAVE EYES III? And It’s Coming To Blu!

Here’s a bit of fun trivia for you. Did you know there’s actually a HILLS HAVE EYES III? Well, sort of. Technically, in 1995, Wes Craven produced a screenplay by his son Jonathan Craven and Phil Mittleman under the title of MIND RIPPER. Joe Gayton (screenwriter of the 1996 Adam Sandler/Damon Wayans flick BULLETPROOF) directed […]

Why The SCREAM TV Show Is Better Than The Movie Series

When TV Series surpass their source material in quality: Why SCREAM: The Series is far more entertaining than the film series it’s based on. “You gotta remember that the whodunit may not be as important in our story.” “So it’s more of a “Why-dunit?” “No. I’m saying you need to forget it’s a horror story.

THE FINAL CHAPTER: When Horror Franchises Call It Quits

On this week’s Killer POV episode, aptly titled “The Final Chapter,” we delved into a discussion about the final films in various horror franchises. What constitutes the “final” film? FRIDAY THE 13th, for example, is a curious beast. Technically, they named Part 4 “THE FINAL CHAPTER.” But that was followed up by “A NEW BEGINNING.” […]

Were You A Member Of The FREDDY KRUEGER Fanclub?

Looking back, I still find the entire concept of Freddy-mania absolutely bonkers. How the hell did a wicked, terrifying, burnt up child murderer turn into an 80’s icon adored by audiences and (in particular) kids everywhere?! Sure, there was the expected merchandise like posters, T-Shirts and comic books. But then came the talking Freddy doll (marketed […]
