I think the worst horror movie I saw was night of the living dead..
not as good as Dawn of the Dead is it?
I hate The Exorcist. It's so ****in' boring.
Hey, the exorcist was pretty good..
I would put dawn of the dead over it...
I only liked the end.
'Your mother sucks ***** in hell.' That's just funny.
A bit was scarey abit was funny..
I didn't find any of it scary, but I understand if others do.
The first time it is....
Not to everyone.
I love the Elm Street flicks. I grew up in the 80's and the first Elm St. scared the **** out of me as a kid. The scene where he was chasing the girl and his arms exteneded al the way across the alley totally made me crap my pants.lol and dont even get me going on the body bag in the school hallway, and the blood shooting up out of the bed!
Second one I didnt really care for, I also found it a bit boring. As said previously, the "you are all my children" line was the best thing in the movie.
Dream Warriors...awesome!! Even tho this was the transition movie from dark, scary Freddy to the more comedic Freddie, it still kicked ass. Plus Dokken rocked the soundtrack! Dream warriors, aint gonna dream no more!
4 and 5, I didnt care for at all, they ran together too much for me. I still get the story confused, but I just couldnt dig them.
Freddys Dead I actually enjoyed. I remember being handed the 3D glasses with my ticket.lol It was co0l seeing his backstory more filled out. I also really liked the line, "every town has an Elm Street." It kinda made it a bit more frightening that this guy could really go to whereever he wanted and start killing kids.
New Nightmare, after the "death" of Freddy this was an interesting take to continue on the movies. I didnt mind it.
FvsJ. Liked it. It felt more like an Elm Street movie than a Jason movie, which was good.
I want more Elm Street movies tho. This character can go on forever.
Well...not in our day..
I didn't realise you were so old. t:
1) ANOES1 scared the crap outta my pants as a child too, at those same moments
2) i disliked FD but that is a great line...
3) we need more ANOES movies... like film 3 at once or something, a new trilogy w/the same characters
never say never.
Plus, I can dream cant I?
Or, should I?!
In our modern day(right now)....horror movies arent scary....back then(20 or so yearsago) it was..
One of the things I liked as the movies went on is the way Freddy would change the dream around in order to bring more fear out of his victims. In the first two,he would have his tricks but he would pretty much show up,stalk for a bit and then kill. However,by part 3 he was using the children's fears against them and finally using the dream world to his advantage. He would start to change into other people to confuse those in the dream(like tricking Nancy at the end of 3,and pretending to be Kristen's mother)as well as changing in that giant Freddy snake and using the motorcycle to kill Dan in The Dream Child. He knew Debbie was afraid of bugs in part 4 and you all know what happened there.
Plus,another great thing about the Elm Street franchise are the heroes who stand up to Krueger. Look at it this way: In Friday the 13th,do you really think that some 16 year old girl can defeat a hulking 6'4' massive killing machine like Jason? What,just because she's a virgin and doesn't do drugs? C'mon. But in the Elm Street series,you don't have to be as big and tougher than Freddy to beat him. It's all about how strong of a person you are inside and if you can get the courage and will to win. So,it's a more believable situation,I think. There's always more to the Nightmare on Elm Street movies than other horror franchises and that's why they have more positive critical reviews and why they are the most popular.
^^I agree with you 100%
I guess new line is bringing back Freddy soon and it isnt a remake . This was mentioned on the radio today .
Ill have to check this out..
Well, if they get a writer who really cares for the history of the character and the movies, it would be pretty easy to continue on.
I found a few things..Nothing to confirm it though...
