Dinner For Fiends: A Nightmare on Poop Street





Dinner for Fiends!After the very controversial Friday the 3rd Taint episode of Dinner for Fiends reared its head last year, we've all been bracing for one thing ... just how bad the announced remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street would be. Well. It certainly didn't disappoint.

SURPRISE! We all hated it. Yet, you won't be finding as much venom in this edition as you did for Friday. It's more like bewildered yet foreseen disgust and sadness. You know the type ... like when you are called to the morgue to identify what is now left of one of your loved ones.

Good thing we had a Human Centipede chaser to lighten our moods. Thanks, Platinum Dunes! You've savaged another childhood memory like only you know how to. Join myself, Matt, Foy, and a returning Buz (sorry, Mexico) and Andrew for the latest round of dick jokes, hostility, and other hijinx that amount to nearly an hour and a half's worth of spite and dismay.

When you're done, take a second and VOTE FOR US ON PODCAST ALLEY! We love you long time.

    These Platinim Dunes scumbags absolutely intend of remaking THE BIRDS.

    I know because I have the script, and I'm too scared to read it in case I pull a SCANNERS and my head explodes with the sheer force of my rage.

    it could have been worse, but it could have been a lot better too.

    Steve Barton's picture

    What can I say? The movie didn't bother me. Everything could be better.

    However, at least with D2 they brought back then entire crew of the first film and did their best to deliver the best film that they could. It's not like the property was just thrown out there to amateurs looking to cash in.

    "at least with D2 they brought back then entire crew of the first film"

    That's the greatest source of my disdain for Descent 2. Maybe I'll get to state why on a future DFF rather than being told to shut up.

    Yeah, well I think there's a great conflict of interest that someone who appeared in Survival of the Dead writes the review of it. Get him, Terminal! hehehehe :)

    Buz's Anderson story is fucking gold! This is easily one of the funniest DFFs in quite some time. I need to see the Descent 2 before listening to the next Foycast.

    Oh, no. I'm not soiling a Foycast with Descent 2 talk. I'll save that for the next DFF. Nobody will call time on that one.

    WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE AFRAID OF CHANGE IN HORROR? ITS BEEN HAPPENING FOR YEARS BUT IN ANOTHER 25 YEARS EVERYONES GONNA BE SAYIN THAT THIS NIGHTMARE WAS JUST AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL OR VICE VERSA.
    MOVIES ARE MOVIES AND THEY SHOULD ENTERTAIN US IF THEY DONT DO THAT THEN WHY WATCH THEM?
    I DIDNT CARE FOR THE NEW NIGHTMARE FLICK BUT I'M NOT GONNA POO POO ON IT EITHER.

    Are you guys all middle age balding fat men? Seriously dude lets be friends. I know the movie was bad and will not be able to beat the original in my heart or even yours but hey there making way more money than any of us. They made a film the fans didn't like,and now we have to complain like 5 year old's because it wasn't made to our liking?
    All I am saying is ease up on the sarcasm. were all horror fans so why the hostility?

    It's THEY'RE making as in "they are" not THERE making as in "THERE was this guy complaining about people complaining". I'll leave the WERE instead of WE'RE at the end of your paragraph alone because you did say you wanted to be friends. But,is them "making way more money than us" really a defense(or the best defense) for a group of individuals who made a piss poor movie and ARE taking money FROM people who have LESS money? OH, and middle aged bald men get T-shirts made with THEIR image on them. Lol.
    Just saying.

    What if the complaint is that we genuinely believe it to be a poorly made movie and not just a generational thing?

    I love how you typed this rant in all caps but then signed your name normally.

    And nobody in 25 years is going to be saying this remake was as good as the original. NOBODY.

    "MOVIES ARE MOVIES AND THEY SHOULD ENTERTAIN US IF THEY DONT DO THAT THEN WHY WATCH THEM?"

    So how will we know if they'll entertain us if we don't watch them?

    Steve Barton's picture

    Dude ... one thing I can guarantee you ... no matter how much time passes -- no one WILL EVER be saying this flick was as good as the original.

    The problem isn't "change in horror" in fact it's just the opposite. We keep getting these nonsensical rehashes that keep trying to emulate the source material that end up failing miserably.

    A Nightmare on Poop Street? Really, Creepy. That was the best title for this DFF you could come up with? No wonder you wanted to avoid debating the merits of The Descent 2 with me.

    But it's so damned reflective of the content of the movie ... is it not? The name actually came from Buz and my scat fixation of course.

    "Doody" is edgier and it rolls off the tongue. The word, not the actual substance. Although some porno makes it look tasty. What was I saying again?
