A Blast From The Past I Never Had

I can't believe that I am doing this at this particular point in the game, but I never watched the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. That was probably primarily because my parents didn't want me to. Now I'm an adult and I figured that it was time to play some catch up on the old classics. What a dumb idea, but I will probably finish what I started.

I have just finished watching #4 in the series and the only word that comes to mind is GAY!!!

The deeper I get into this the worse each movie is becoming. Not only is the music horrid, the effects are lame, and the story line sucks; I just get bored with it. This particular installment was over the top. Oh, I've got a plan to kill Freddy with martial arts! Give me a break! And what's worse is that the horribly sucky fight scene takes place in a church! As if the writer was trying to borrow some ethical relation to Highlander or something. It just made no sense.

When I first started this journey with this series I must admit that I was a little excited. Now, I just can't wait for it to be over...with the exception of the very last in the series Freddy vs. Jason- stupid concept...just plain stupid.

This series had it's part in establishing the 'rules' of horror movies as exploited by the Scary Movie series. The first Elmstreet is considered as a b-movie classic. It's it's own turkey, but yeah, the 7-8 sequeals sucked.

maybe try a different strategy, instead of watching a particular series find a movie you liked with a great actor that you've noticed or likened to... then watch all of that actor's/actresses films or try the director of that particular flick.

Perhaps, with Elmstreet, you liked the first one, so only watch the sequeals directed by Wes Cramer [sp] and his other horror films.

but just say away from the friday the 13th series, they get even worse!
