40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season 3

Movies 20-11

20. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) directed by Wes Craven

Before he was the one-line-loving, crassly, campy class clown known as Freddy, Fred Krueger was the stuff of genuine nightmares. Scarred and grinning in his striped wool sweater, Fred prowls the dreamscape realm of the local high schoolers, the children upon whom he once preyed before their parents got smart and burned him alive. Years ago, Fred was a janitor at the elementary school; he lured children into the boiler room, where, it’s insinuated, he molested and maimed the kids. Now, years later, he returns to haunt the dreams of the children of Suburbia, America. Craven conjures the most surreal imagery of his wildly uneven career here, and Robert Englund instills Craven’s iconic creation with sharp, wry kind of terror, his playful delivery still ironic before the sequels declawed him. He wears his ratty old fedora like

Jean Harlow Centenary Celebration on TCM: Red-headed Woman, Suzy, Riffraff

Jean Harlow, Chester Morris in Jack Conway's Red-Headed Woman Jean Harlow, who died of complications from kidney disease at the age of 26 in 1937, would have turned 100 years old last March 3. In celebration of Harlow's centenary, Turner Classic Movies is presenting a series of Harlow movies every Tuesday evening this month. The Jean Harlow series begins tonight, with a mix that includes Harlow's early, pre-mgm work (a bit part in Charles Chaplin's City Lights, the Columbia release Three Wise Girls), the racy pre-Coder Red-Headed Woman, and a couple of her later MGM movies (Suzy, Riffraff).
