A Nightmare on Elm Street
San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Terror Toybox - Aliens, Predators, Pacific Rim, Freddy, Carrie; Bates Motel Pitstop
We had a heavy first day at SDCC and are already suffering from stimuli overload! With 8-Bit Jason tucked safely away, we got a little camera-happy looking at toys and ended up with enough cool eye candy for a gallery!
We, just like you, often sit here staring at our 7" Freddy action figures from NECA and think to ourselves, "Man, it would be so cool to have a tiny furnace for him to be posed in front of." Well, just like that our prayers have been answered.
Assuming I haven't been run out of town on a rail by you Dreadies after the first two films on this list, I'll carry on with the next entry. It's completely coincidental that two of the first three films on this list are directed by Wes Craven; the dude just made some badass films.
In the market for a new home nestled deep in West Hollywood? Maybe some infamous digs known for their connection to a badly burned homicidal maniac with a penchant for making your life a living hell via your dreams? Then read on!
Who's ready to go back to school? We are, and we know what's waiting: copious amounts of pig's blood, nightmare stalkers, masked killers, and more.
"Why was I born?" That is the refrain Iggy Pop frequently asks in his song about everyone's favorite dream demon. I think the obvious answer to the question as to why Freddy Krueger was born is "to make money". Not the answer Mr. Pop is looking for, but the most honest answer nonetheless.
Who hasn't watched Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Child's Play, Hellraiser, and Predator and thought to themselves, "Wow. I'd really like to put them in my mouth!" Well, now you can!
At age 65 Robert Englund has pretty much done it all in the business, including helping to create an iconic character that people will be fearing for generations to come alongside heavyweights like Dracula and Frankenstein's monster.
Everyone loves a great horror movie villain. In their prime the likes of Jason, Freddy, and Michael could take a person apart in any number of ways. The only problem? People get old! What if they did, too? Read on for what is no doubt one of our favorite collections of fan images ever!
As avid horror memorabilia collectors, we've been known to toss a lot of cash around for things that really only have value to us. However, every now and again something comes along so friggin' cool it would have value to anyone. This is one of those times.
We'll be the first to admit that after seeing the abysmal remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, we didn't think there was any way that Rooney Mara could pull off playing the complex role of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Lisbeth Salander. Guess who else wasn't a big fan of the movie or the role of Nancy? Mara herself.
"To avoid fainting, keep repeating: It's only a movie ... only a movie ... only a movie ..." Of course this was the infamous tagline that accompanied the directorial debut of the man who would become one of the most successful directors the genre has ever seen. Wes Craven helped to mold modern-day horror with his early work, then reinvigorated it when needed the most.
It's here! It's here! Our favorite day of the year! If you're reading this page right here, right now, it's most likely because you realize that Halloween is more than just a spooky occasion to be celebrated once a year. Horror fans live this kind of thing every day while the rest of the world plays catch-up annually!
Sigh. So here in the States A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors just hit Blu-ray on a double feature disc. Pretty cool, right? Wrong.
