Last fall, Janine Lister’s Hellraiser cupcakes had such sights to show Daily Dead readers, and now the talented food artist has another creepy and edible creation that is seemingly straight from horror fans’ most delectable dreams…
Once again blending her passion for the horror genre with excellent artisan skills, Janine has created an incredible set of A Nightmare on Elm Street cupcakes based on the bladed boogeyman himself, Freddy Krueger. Janine was kind enough to share some of the ingredients for this dessert, as well as how her love of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise (especially the third film, Dream Warriors), inspired her to make these sweet and sinister cupakes:
“Freddy is a widely recognized, iconic character in horror and was one of the films that originally got me further engrossed in horror. I’ve now watched thousands of horror films, but there are still those horror franchises »

Directed by James Wan, The Conjuring 2 arrives in UK cinemas on 13th June for what could be the scariest Monday on record. The film is based off of the real-life suspected paranormal activity that took place in Enfield during the 1970’s. To get you in the mood for all the scares that the film will provide why not test your nerves with this interactive video.

Sean Wilson asks his fellow Flickering Myth writers about the film experiences that shaped their childhoods…
I was more than a little startled when hit with the recent revelation that nineties family classic Free Willy this year passed its 22nd birthday. It’s not a lengthy period in the grand scheme of things but for me it encapsulates an entire aeon of time having passed, as it was one of the first movies I vividly remember watching at the cinema. I couldn’t have been older than 7, the theatre was the Paignton Picture House (one of the world’s oldest cinemas, currently undergoing a new lease of life following its tragic closure in 1999) and the movie was the sort of rollicking emotional rollercoaster that sears itself into young minds.
This seemingly unassuming piece of news nevertheless hit me like the proverbial wave, making me wistful and reflective on the nature of formative cinema experiences, »

Most of the time, the deleted scenes that end up on the cutting room floor of any given movie don’t bring anything substantial to the movie, hence why the scene was cut to begin with. However, in the case of a sparsely seen deleted scene from the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, some […]

Perhaps you don't remember, or simply weren't alive at the time, but Marvel Comics caught A Nightmare on Elm Street fever back in 1989, five years after the original movie came out. And they embarked on a magazine-style comic book that revolved around dream demon Freddy Krueger. The series didn't last very long at just two issues. Now, the unreleased cover art of the canceled third issue has been unveiled by artist Joe Jusko.
The comic book series introduced the new character of Dr. Juliann Quinn. A psychiatrist, she set out to investigate the nightmare epidemic that had run rampant through Springwood, inflicting the local teenagers. She teams with a young woman almost killed by Freddy Krueger named Allison Hayes. The two set out to eradicate the killer, and end his run of terror once and for all.
The comic book was presented in black and white, and featuring quite a »

One of the most iconic horror movie series, and one which dominated an entire generation was none other than A Nightmare on Elm Street by Wes Craven. The inimitable Freddy Krueger was one of the most wretched, vile and horrifying creatures imaginable – a veritable demon inhabiting the minds of his subjects and then coming to life while their subconscious kept them paralyzed. Freddy Krueger is the antagonist of all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, and his is a name that has burned into the consciousness of horror fans the world over. Indeed, the devilish creation brought fear, dread and terror into the minds of an entire generation of children in the 1980s.
There isn’t a soul among us who has not heard the name Freddie Krueger and who doesn’t know that eerie, »
Cabin Fever review
Eli Roth is a name now synonymous with the horror genre. His dark mind has brought to life Hostel, The Green Inferno and Cabin Fever. It was the latter that made the studios take notice and now fourteen years later Roth has returned to the series. Acting as producer, Roth gave the green light for Travis Zariwny (credited simply as Travis Z for the title) to remake Cabin Fever. That’s right – remake, not create a sequel or prequel. The horror genre already has more than its fair share of remakes, all the slasher classics (Halloween, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street) have come back around, »

"A Nightmare on Elm Street" director Wes Craven is still raking in the dough after his death -- his Hollywood Hills home just sold for almost $250k above asking price.

A Nightmare on Elm Street really does have one of the most brilliantly simple premises in horror movie history. A strange man, Freddy Kreuger, can kill teenagers through their dreams. That's it, really. Even Kreuger himself has a simple, understandable back story as a villain: he was caught molesting school kids, and so the parents in town took justice into their own hands and killed him before he could hurt anyone else. But as it turns out, Krueger's backstory was initially fairly different. He didn't just get caught abusing kids, we was a flat out serial killer. Not only that, but he killed the siblings of every one of final girl Nancy's friends, and had even murdered a sibling that Nancy never even knew she had. Nancy's mom originally explained all of...

Three years ago, Warner Home Video released A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection on Blu-ray. This set contained all seven movies in the hit horror franchise, along with most of the bonus features that have been compiled from the various home video releases over the years. However, that collection missed a few bonus features that were originally put together for an obscure Laserdisc release, which includes a deleted scene that drops quite a big bombshell.
This deleted scene, which was posted on YouTube more than six years ago but has just started making the rounds today, features Marge Thompson (Ronee Blakley) explaining who Freddy Krueger really was, to her daughter Nancy (Heather Langenkamp). Most of this footage was included in the original theatrical cut, where Nancy explains how Fred was released on a technicality, which lead to several parents taking matters into their own hands by killing Krueger themselves.

Our series on big-screen remakes continues with a cult horror film that kickstarted the illustrious career of Steve McQueen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Blob (1958 vs. 1988). Come inside to see how these two films stack up.
The original version of The Blob was a low-budget monster film made for $110,000. The titular creature was originally supposed to be called The Molten Meteor Monster, which then was changed to The Mass, which turned into The Glob, and Finally The Blob. The film's tongue-in-cheek title song was written by Burt Bacharach and Mack David, which became a hit. The movie was directed by Irvin Yeaworth who specialized in directing motivational educational and religious films, so this was a departure for him. The film was a moderate success, grossing over $4 million, although the critics weren’t overly kind. It has a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite its cheesiness, its reputation has grown over »

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.
Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies. See beneath the video embed below for the full list (in order) used.

If you had asked me five years ago about a live action remake of The Jungle Book, I would have rolled my eyes and quickly moved the on in the conversation. It’s not that I’m against remakes as a concept. I love the idea of tackling time-tested classics for a new generation and giving flawed projects a second chance. I loved The Magnificent Seven. I thought that The Departed was easily the best movie of 2006. I am one of the only ardent defenders of A Nightmare on Elm Street running around in public today. It’s also not that I

Every devoted horror fan at one time or another has sat down and taken the time to jot down his or her “bucket list” of people – actors, directors, etc. – who have all appeared in or helped helm horror films they love and have grown an attachment to. When I was a horror “newbie” back in the early-to-mid-80’s, there were films that shocked and terrified me and the more I watched them as years progressed, the more I became curious about the people who put these films together. I dreamed of getting to meet and hang out with those fabulous individuals that comprised their casts. The first one I ever put together was in the tenth grade sometime in 1990 while sitting in Physics class, staring at Mrs. Gooch and longing for the bell to ring to let us go. I had just started to educate myself on the popular (and at the same time, »

Edward Gardiner on why it’s okay to prefer remakes…
If it’s not a sequel, it’s a remake.
Always a hot topic in film discussion, the phenomenon of film remakes is something many of us still can’t entirely wrap our heads around. It’s been going on for decades, to varying degrees of quality, but only in recent years has it become so common, much to the ire of large portions of the audience, as big studios running low on ideas exploit previously sold titles for guaranteed ticket sales. In fact, I’m not even convinced it’s because they’re running out of ideas – films like Whiplash and Blue Ruin prove there are more than enough budding writers and directors out there just bursting with talent and original ideas. It’s because the studios know they have to put considerably less effort and money into selling »
