Scream Queens : Haunted House

You’d think at some point this show would run out of people to kill? The thing is every week people seem to die but at the same time the cast doesn’t feel like its getting any smaller. Strange world really…. Though the bodies are all disappearing.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Rating : 

We are going a little out of sink with the movies. When looking at these series we will be looking at the remakes too so it was only fair that we end with the 2010 remake that starred Jackie Earle Haley as the iconic Master of Dreams in the first film to star Freddy Krueger and not have Robert Englund play him.

The remake decided to go down a completely different path once more. It said goodbye to the old mythology behind the character and created its own and reinvented Nightmare’s in its own way.

The movie isn’t held in high acclaim but for me it did what the majority of other remakes failed and actually tried to do things differently.

National Poetry Day

So its national Poetry Day if you didn’t already know and I have always loved Poetry. Well I like reading just about anything so that shouldn’t come as a surprise! So to get in the spirit I thought I’d share the only poem I’ve got written on my computer and can be bothered to find (I amazingly don’t write much on the computer I have notebooks of poetry, lyrics, half finished ideas for stories yet never find the time to put them anywhere but in the notebook!)

Its terrible but hey. Its national poetry day!

—————————————————————————

I don’t want to compare you to a daffodil,
I feel that would be too clichéd.
So instead I thought I’d compare you to a stinging nettle,
And before you throw your drink at me let me explain.

Your wit is as sharp as the needles.
You pierce through the skin and draw blood.
You grow on me daily with slender branches
And if I pull away to far we’ll both get hurt.

To compare you to a flower I could trod on,
Would not give your strength enough merit.
To compare you to something strong and deadly,
Reminds me your safe enough when I’m gone.

So forget the daffodils and daisies,
For now look on nettles with all your love.
I will not make our love a cliché,
But something stronger, unique and free.

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994)

Rating : 

Only 3 years after The Final Nightmare the man who created Freddy and hadn’t been involved in the series since Dream Warriors, Wes Craven, returned to pen and direct a new Krueger movie.

This turned out to be the final movie for nearly a decade for the Dream Master and also marks the final outing of Robert Englund’s Freddy in a singular movie (the next movie and last movie Englund played Freddy is the crossover Freddy vs Jason.)

The movie moves away from the setting of the original run of movies and reinvents Freddy and the situation in a new and well done manner.
