Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Attempt at Revenge

 
Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge,Bitter Balcony, review, movie revieww, movie, bitterNightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985)

When an iconic horror monster such as Freddy Krueger is born in "Nightmare on Elm Street," you can bet there will be a sequel. Even in 1985 this was a requirement. Thus Freddy returns for an attempt at revenge and he has to manipulate Gary Numan to do it.

That’s right: Gary Numan is in "Freddy's Revenge" and he’s not down in the park or here in his car. What, that’s not Gary Numan? But he looks like him. OK, so it’s Mark Patton. (See, I should have stuck with the Numan joke). Will Mark Patton find his absolution?

A Nightmare on Elm Street

On an ordinary street in a small town, a legendary abomination wearing a torn red and green striped shirt, a dusty fedora and a handcrafted glove with knives was born. The monster was Freddy Krueger, a homicidal freak who terrorized Elm Street kids in their sleep, most of them unable to wake up in time to survive. Creator Wes Craven and star Robert Englund re-imagined the bogeyman into a sadistic prankster who enjoyed the mind-torture as much as the kill. In this first entry “A Nightmare on Elm Street," Krueger is at his malignant best (and so evil that he is referred to as "Fred" and not the comforting diminutive). Hey, who else but Krueger could make Johnny Depp turn into a blood geyser and still be liked?

Dating and Movie Watching: Part 2: Something good? Or a tease?

An interesting parallel between dating and movie-watching is the constant teasing. When meeting a new girl, I always start off intrigued by some aspect of her personality and/or looks. I admit it. Looks can sometimes fool me into trying something I know won’t work, but it never lasts and I usually don’t feel so foolish because I saw it coming.

How is this any different from movies? We see a trailer and think, “That movie looks slick! Look at the visuals!” And from there on, we foolishly think that the movie will have a good story and characters that are worth watching. Maybe we like what we see at first and wait there in the theater with our fingers crossed.

Interview: Crypticon Seattle - Horror Convention, Baby!

 

Eric Morgret, Head of Programming for Crypticon Seattle, was kind enough to take a moment out of his time to answer a few questions about what we can expect from this years event, plus comment on horror movies in general. Of course, "Twilight" is never overlooked, so expect opinions on that suckfest inside!

Let's get to it shall we!

BB: What are your hopes for the convention, long term?

Eric: Simply put we would like Crypticon to become the “go-to” horror event for the Northwest and a convention that people want to travel to. A unique and interesting event that gives people things to talk about until the next convention comes around.
