Graphic Nature: Artist Brandon Schaefer on Creating the Halloween II Vinyl Score Artwork for Death Waltz

The sequel to one of the most influential horror movies of all time, Halloween II continues the story of the night He came home. Directing from a screenplay by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, Rick Rosenthal skillfully replicated the deliberate yet intoxicating pacing and overall mood of the original film while adding a potent surplus of gore. Unfairly overshadowed by the film’s legacy, Carpenter’s score finely whittles away the nerves with its tense synthesized savageness. As one of Death Waltz Recording’s early releases, the label made sure it got off on the right note by commissioning Jump Cut artist Brandon Schaefer for the cover art. Dark, hollow, and heartless, Schaefer’s adaptation of The Shape is a fresh and hypnotizing take on a horror icon.

Death Waltz reached out as the label was starting to form to put something together,” notes Schaefer in regards to how he

10 Freddy Krueger Movies You Never Saw

10 Freddy Krueger Movies You Never Saw
Freddy Krueger is one of Halloween's most celebrated horror movie killers. A Nightmare on Elm Street, from the brilliant mind of the late fright master Wes Craven, is a stone cold classic. While the many sequels are a mixed bag, there's no disputing the greatness of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, or the bold adventurousness of Wes Craven's New Nightmare, which reimagined the entire franchise in a fascinating new way, years before "meta" became a trendy buzz word.

Jack Sholder put Freddy Krueger inside another dude, Renny Harlin put him in sunglasses, and Rachel Talalay nearly finished him off in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. Though he once hosted his own TV show and finally faced off with the killer of the Friday the 13th franchise in Freddy vs. Jason, there are still multiple Freddy Krueger projects that were in some stage of development that simply never got made.

Nightmare on Elm Street Fan Trailer Gives Freddy a Netflix Series

Nightmare on Elm Street Fan Trailer Gives Freddy a Netflix Series
Despite off and on talks of a reboot supposedly happening, the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is currently dormant, although one enterprising fan has offered a look at what the franchise might look like if it took a far different approach. While we wait for word on the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, a YouTube user has debuted a new fan trailer that shows what A Nightmare on Elm Street Netflix TV series might look like. While there is no indication that this franchise may be heading down the streaming service route, the trailer is certainly an intriguing one to look at.

This trailer was put together by a YouTube user named Jose Mellinas, who uses footage from A Nightmare on Elm Street Trailer Concept, the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Freddy vs Jason. The trailer also features footage from a number of movies that don't feature Freddy Krueger,

‘It’: The Six Most Important Differences Between the Film and Stephen King’s Book

‘It’: The Six Most Important Differences Between the Film and Stephen King’s Book
Clowns were always creepy, but then Stephen King came along. In 1986, King published “It,” which introduced the world to seven scrappy kids nicknamed The Losers Club, who faced off against a child-killing, shape-shifting clown named Pennywise, an evil entity that was infesting their hometown of Derry, Maine. Derry had popped up in several King novels before “It,” including “Pet Cemetery” and the novella “The Body,” which served as the source material for the film “Stand By Me,” but it wasn’t until “It” that King fans really got to know the dark history and evil lurking in the sewers of the fictional Maine town.

With King’s mammoth novel sitting around 1,138 pages, the bloody details of Derry’s darkest days are fleshed out across multiple time periods. But, as with so many film adaptations of classic novels, not everything in the book makes the final cut. Even 1990’s “It” TV mini-series,

Deadly Pleasures: A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

  • DailyDead
Like with any long-running slasher movie franchise, every horror fan has a favorite Nightmare on Elm Street sequel when asked. The most popular response is Dream Warriors, which, based on anecdotal evidence, many fans prefer even to the first film. Some like its follow-up, the Renny Harlin-directed The Dream Master, best. Very rarely, if ever, do Nightmare fans name the fifth installment, 1989’s The Dream Child, as their favorite. It’s the unloved orphan of the franchise, lacking even the novelty of Freddy’s Dead with its 3-D climax and the fact that it’s designed to end the series for good (even if Wes Craven’s New Nightmare would render said closure impotent just a few years later). For many, The Dream Child represents the franchise overstaying its welcome for one film too many before wrapping up. And, yes, the movie has its share of problems both in

Freddy Krueger Actor Reveals His Favorite Elm Street Kill

Freddy Krueger Actor Reveals His Favorite Elm Street Kill
What is Robert England's own personal favorite Freddy Krueger kill in an Elm Street movie? The answer might surprise you. A few months ago, a new trailer debuted for the documentary Nightmares From the Makeup Chair, featuring the iconic Robert Englund getting back into the makeup chair to be transformed into Freddy Krueger one last time. Throughout the years, there has been talk of another reboot to continue this franchise, but that hasn't happened yet. While we wait for any movement on the languishing series, Robert Englund revealed during a recent convention appearance what his favorite Freddy Krueger kill is in the entire franchise...So far.

Freddy Krueger was first introduced in the 1984 Wes Craven classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, where Robert Englund starred alongside Heather Langenkamp and a young Johnny Depp in his feature film debut. The franchise continued with 1985's A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge,

Elm Street 4 Actress Lisa Wilcox Revisits Dream Master Locations
One of the greatest heroines to ever spawn from the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise is doing something very cool for fans.

The Nightmare on Elm Street Series Lives On in Slots!

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,

Derek’s Favorites of 2014

  • DailyDead
As Above/So Below

The first Dowdle brothers collaboration to hit theaters since the 2008 [Rec] remake Quarantine, As Above/So Below is well worth the wait. Following a group of explorers in search of the Philosopher’s Stone, As Above/So Below was largely shot on location in the Catacombs beneath Paris, and the film’s found footage shooting style convincingly places viewers inside the skull-lined tunnels where shadows threaten to consume you at every turn.

Claustrophobic jump scares, the psychological horror of having your past literally come back to haunt (and potentially kill) you, and the creepily crafted screenplay from John Erick and Drew Dowdle had me anxiously tugging at my shirt collar throughout most of the film’s 93-minute runtime. The scariest part for me? The mysterious wide-eyed woman that Edwin Hodge’s camera-holding character Benji keeps seeing. Her lingering looks into the lens still give me chills.
