My Take Radio’s 31 Days of Horror: A Nightmare On Elm Street
Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street series is one of the few horror films that can use a blend of humor and terror to accomplish its goals. The original Nightmare on Elm Street leaned more towards genuine fear but its sequels gave Freddy at bit more of sadistic ,humorous side that was oddly appropriate yet still scary. Robert Englund became a legend with his excellent portrayal of child murderer Fred Krueger. When we talk about scary iconic horror scenes nothing comes to mind quicker then Freddy’s first appearance. The only scene more memorable then that was the death of Johnny Depp and the blood geyser that followed. A classic that stand the test of time and can never be replaced by a shitty remake.
