It really shouldn't be this busy on a Friday, but hey, if we gotta work at least we're reporting on Bigfoot movies and not flipping burgers, right? Get ready for more sasquatchploitation in the latest trailer for Savage!
While traffic on Hollywood Boulevard is always a nightmare on any given night, it was the "Black Carpet Premiere" for Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street that really stopped traffic this past Tuesday evening, and of course Dread Central's red carpet team of Heather Wixson and Brian Smith were on hand to talk with cast members about their feelings on this new direction and vision of Freddy Krueger.
With the remake slinking out of the boiler room and into theaters soon, I became intoxicated with revisiting A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master – the most financially successful Nightmare sequel before it was dethroned by Freddy vs. Jason in 2003.

It takes a special final girl to take on Freddy Krueger twice and live to tell about it. Alice Johnson was exactly that girl.

As one of the women of Dread Central, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different in honor of February being Women in Horror Month. Starting in just a couple of weeks we will be running an exclusive interview series called “Final Girls” profiling some of horror’s most kick-ass warrior chicks from the last thirty years.
A few days ago we brought you news and the one-sheet for Savage, a new killer Bigfoot flick starring Lisa Wilcox of Nightmare on Elm Street 4 & 5 and the venerable Martin Kove. Turns out there's already a trailer lurking out there for this latest bit of Sasquatchploitation.
Want to see the first one sheet for the upcoming "Sasquatch on the loose" creature feature Savage? Of course you do! Come on in; we have it!
Iconic horror villain Freddy Krueger had himself quite a few "final girls" over the last 25 years. One of our personal favorites had always been Alice (played by Lisa Wilcox in Parts 4 and 5). In fact, Alice is the one of the very few to survive the deadly grasp of Elm Street's most nefarious inhabitant. So, where's Alice been since she took on Freddy?
