Catalog From The Beyond: Tobe Hooper’s The Mangler (1995)

This year, I’ve dedicated myself to catching up on the work of Stephen King. His books have always been a bit of a blind spot for me, beginning when I was a kid and thought reading for pleasure was a laughable concept. As I got older, King was so ingrained in horror pop culture that I was never curious enough to try his work beyond a couple of false starts with The Stand (it’s so looooong). Recently, however, as I’ve finally become aware of the large chasm between experiencing art third hand and immersing myself in it, I’ve made it a point to start looping back around with heavy hitters like King. Of course, reading some of his classics like Carrie and Pet Sematary bring on the urge to visit the film adaptations since I haven’t seen Pet Sematary in years, and somehow, I’ve never seen Carrie at all.

‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Imagined as a Romantic Comedy Takes a Surprising Turn!

‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Imagined as a Romantic Comedy Takes a Surprising Turn!
Wes Craven‘s A Nightmare on Elm Street is distinctly different than most slashers because of the unparalleled banter between Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) and the final girl, Nancy (Heather Langenkamp). Nancy survives her first encounter, only to end up taking NoDoz once again in Dream Warriors. YouTuber Shawn Kohne explores this relationship in his unique edit of A Nightmare […]

Stylish Fan-Made Concept Trailer For A Nightmare On Elm Street Reboot Creeps Online

Though he’s been dogged by one creative setback after another, it’s really a question of when – rather than if – Freddy Krueger will return.

Last we reported, an online petition called for Bill Moseley, star of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses, to headline a possible reboot of Nightmare On Elm Street. Over on YouTube, though, one talented horror fan has cut together the next best thing: an eerie concept trailer that heralds the return of Krueger and his nightmarish reign.

It’s a decidedly artsy, low-key take on the clawed serial killer (h/t Bloody Disgusting), who defies death only to rack up a body count of his own. Having tackled the likes of Evil Dead and other horror franchises, Tommy Ross’ take on Elm Street ought to be celebrated, as it alludes to the reboot we all want to see.

Bill Moseley as Fred Krueger? Sign the Petition Today!

For a while there was fan-talk about Mr. Kevin Bacon taking over the role of Freddy Krueger from Mr. Robert Englund should New Line even get it into their head to attempt another reboot of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street. While I’m more than game to see Bacon as the Springwood Slasher, today’s […]

Bill Moseley Would Love to Play Freddy Krueger, So Fans Started a Petition

There's no A Nightmare on Elm Street Reboot currently in the pipeline. But so what? We now have ourselves a new candidate to play the next Freddy Krueger. Bill Moseley, best known for his work in Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, has thrown his hat in the ring. Moseley wasn't necessarily out looking to make this happen, but when a fan recently brought the idea up to him on Twitter, he was all for it saying, "I would love to." The fan then asked if they would have his blessing if they started a petition to actually make it happen. The actor also responded quite positively to that idea, replying with two simple yet effective words.

"F*** yeah!"

And with that, there is now a petition online to have Bill Moseley play the next Freddy Krueger. Robert Englund originally brought the character to life in

Never Before Seen Freddy Vs. Jason Bts Image Emerges

Long before any sort of justice had ever dawned, Freddy vs. Jason debuted in cinemas as what may be remembered as the first notable crossover between two major horror franchises. Since then, we’ve received a couple Alien vs. Predator movies, the second of which performed so poorly that Fox split them back into their own separate entities, and to a much, much lesser extent, Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

So, while it remains doubtful that any sort of sequel will happen outside of the comic book realm (one adding to Ash of Evil Dead fame to the mix nearly made its way to the big screen), we’ll continue going on interesting bits of trivia to preserve the memory of this mashup.

On that note, we’re pleased to be able to bring you a previously unseen photo showing Robert Englund, Freddy Krueger himself, catching a breath in between takes.

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: “Dance of the Dead”

Here we are: the first Masters of Horror episode from my favorite filmmaker of all time: the late, great Tobe Hooper.

Season 1, Episode 3: “Dance of the Dead

Director: Tobe Hooper

Original Air Date: November 11th, 2005

One of the coolest things about the Showtime anthology series Masters of Horror is that, in addition to codifying who many of the genre “masters” were (though it didn’t cover all of them; there were no episodes directed by Wes Craven or George Romero or David Cronenberg or a handful of other greats), the series gave opportunities to filmmakers that had fallen somewhat out of the pop culture consciousness to remind fans that they still had it—they just had to be given the chance. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the case of Tobe Hooper, who was something of a punching bag in the horror genre when his season 1 episode aired.

Blu-ray Review: Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon Collector’s Edition

  • DailyDead
Having only just gotten into collecting Blu-rays within the last couple of years, I’ve become interested in the different ways some of these releases catch our attention as horror fans. Sometimes we get those movies that we’ve always loved and jump on immediately. Other times, we get the obscure films that might wind up being a hidden gem. And then there are those releases that remind us to revisit the movies we haven’t seen in years. Such was the case for me and the 2006 meta-slasher Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. I remember seeing the movie within a year or so of its release, enjoying it, but never really feeling the need for a rewatch until Scream Factory announced their Collector’s Edition.

Blending elements of meta-horror, mockumentary, and straight slasher, Behind the Mask follows journalist Taylor Gentry (Angela Goethals) and her camera crew Doug

Shining a satirical ray of light on the horror genre is nothing new, as a number of films (both indie and mainstream) have done this for a few decades now, but only one (that I know of), Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, states that in its own cinematic world, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Freddy Krueger actually existed.

The Midnight Man and Devil’S Gate Coming to Blu-ray This June from Scream Factory

New IFC Midnight movies are coming to home media this June from the fine folks over at Scream Factory, including the Devil’s Gate, which is set in North Dakota with twists galore, as well as The Midnight Man, starring Robert Englund.

From Scream Factory: “We are pleased to announce that we have two new IFC Midnight films planned for release on Blu-ray & DVD this June!

Devil’S Gate – Amanda Schull (12 Monkeys), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men) and Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation) star in this unnerving, edge-of-your-seat thriller that "keeps executing its euphoric bacchanal of bizarre plot points" (Paste) until its final twisted reveal.

What unholy force lies locked away in this crumbling, booby-trapped, middle-of-nowhere farmhouse? When a woman and her son mysteriously vanish, FBI agent Daria Francis (Schull) is dispatched to the small town of Devil's Gate, North Dakota to investigate the

Vestron Video: ‘Wishmaster’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Andrew Divoff, Tammy Lauren, Robert Englund, Ted Raimi, George “Buck” Flower, Reggie Bannister, Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Chris Lemmon, Wendy Benson-Landes, Tony Crane, Jenny O’Hara, Ricco Ross, John Byner, Gretchen Palmer, Angus Scrimm | Written by Peter Atkins | Directed by Robert Kurtzman

Special makeup supremo Robert Kurtzman directs this 1997 homage to 1980s horror, and while its gross-out effects are impressive, the plot, characters and script leave much to be desired.

Wishmaster opens in 12th century Persia, and a royal party in chaos: people are mutating, skinning themselves, turning inside out, that sort of thing. It seems the king has made a deal with a Djinn, a mythical demon who will grant three wishes. On the third wish, a portal will open and the Djinn (plural) will be unleashed and take over the world of men. Or something. Thankfully, this Djinn is banished thanks to an opal made of blood.
