Nightmare on Elm Street
The most celebrated and wonderful holiday in the history of mankind, Halloween, is approaching us quicker than I think any of use realize and with the holiday comes the hauntings. The best place to experience real terror this season? Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights!
Mezco Toys sure didn't hold back at this year's San Diego Comic-Con! The company's Cinema of Fear line just grew with the inclusion of new figures of Freddy, Jason, Leatherface and more! Did I mention that one of Mezco's new 12" figures is based on the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th?! The Mezco booth also showed off the second series of figures from the Hellboy II: The Golden Army line.
New Line is making its move to bring the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise back into the limelight. THR reports this morning that Doom and Wolf writer Wesley Strick has been brought on board to author the script that will re-invent Freddy Krueger for the 21st Century.

Mezco Toyz revealed to us today the upcoming figures for their Cinema of Fear line of toys and plushes! Here's what to expect in stores this October:
Back during the annual Toy Fair, Mezco made some pretty cool announcements about their upcoming Cinema of Fear lineup, but not many pics of the actual figures were available. That’s because most are still in the prototype stage right now and awaiting approval.
Of all the horror icons, Freddy Krueger is my favorite. The first horror film I watched was A Nightmare on Elm Street, and from then on I was hooked. It didn't matter what others thought of the sequels; I was glued to the franchise. So, what should one think when this series is put into some questionable hands?
So it was longer than we expected, but finally the site is to the point where I can throw another Fear Fest 2 update at you guys, and you’re going to love the new guests we’ve added!
Starring John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, Jsu Garcia, Johnny Depp, Robert Englund Directed by Wes Craven Distributed by New Line Home Entertainment
