HHFF #41 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) – This film isn’t nearly as bad as die hard horror fans want you to think it is. Its biggest sin is its lack of truly iconic kills of its very own, and a couple of re-imagined ones that seemed like they weren’t swinging for the fences. The main thing is that this remake is competent, serious, the actors were all quite good actually, and the visuals and lighting are technically sound. Also, now the the origin story is out of the way we can get to the business of creative sequels, which is where the original series was so much fun.
HHFF #42 An American Werewolf in London – A werewolf movie that’s anything but predictable. The makeup effects in this film are yet to be rivaled. No zombie has ever looked more gruesome than Griffin Dunn. Watch closely for cameos by Rik Mayall (The Young Ones), Frank Oz (Yoda), and Miss Piggy and Kermit. Best Werewolf film to date.
HHFF #43 A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 – Wow. For a bunch of retarded shit, it looks pretty fucking cool huh. I’m pretty sure that if this chick realized that she was new to the series she wouldn’t think it were possible to kill Freddy with a stupid fucking mirror. My favorite one to riff on, but not because it’s the worst one, that’s Part 2. Dan Jordon, gayest 4×4 truck driver in the whole High School.
HHFF #44 Freddy Vs. Jason – A tour de force in WTF. There are moments in this picture where my alcohol soaked mind stops being able to process the images bombarding me. I love this film, I really do. The idea of Jason’s power to never die and not being able to stop killing people being manipulated by Freddy tickles my fanboy bone in a way very few movies ever bother to. This film is a pure love letter to fans of the characters and the genre in general. It’s fun, stylized, weird, action packed, and WAY over the top. Goddamn it, it’s fucking beautiful.
