Nightmare on Elm St Part 5 the Dream Child

Posted in movies on April 29, 2010 by chrisdsav

Nightmare on Elm st Part 5: the Dream Child, continues the storyline of Alice in the final part of the Dream Trilogy.  Her bf Dan dies in a car accident and she learns she is pregnant with his child. Alice has the ability to control her dreams (an ability she gained from Kristen from Part 4) as to not bring back Freddy. The only problem is when a baby starts to develop it dreams and this baby can’t help but enter his mother’s dreams and dream of Freddy.  Freddy uses this as a chance to return once more. While Alice tried to save her child, her best friend seeks out the ghost of Amanda Kruegar Freddy’s mom, the only person who can save Alice’s child.

Part 5 did not do as well as the last installment and was a rehash of a storyline involving Freddy’s mom again.  In Part 3 we already got the ghost who helps everyone, it was not needed a second time around. Robert Englund is great as Freddy , but once again you can see the overly humorous side of the whole thing. It gets very slap sticky and weird at times. Hats off to the production team as we once again get a great look into the dream world that Freddy lives in. The grossest part is the Freddy baby that tries to be born, its sick and twisted at the same time.  If you’re looking for a bunch of great horror comedies the last few entries in the franchise can’t be beat in a twisted sick kind of way.  

Nightmare on Elm St Part 4 The Dream Master

Posted in movies, radio of horror on April 28, 2010 by chrisdsav

Nightmare on Elm St Part 4 : The Dream Master is the second part of the Dream trilogy. Kristen, Joey and Kincaid the survivors of the last film are once again having bad dreams. Because of this Freddy finds the strength to return. He stabs Kincaid in the chest, and drowns Joey. Kristen reveals the truth to her other classmates. Kristen’s mom betrays her and forces her to fall asleep allowing Freddy to kill her.  Before she dies she passes her ability to enter other people’s dreams to her new friend Alice, ( the new hero of the series). After her boy friend Dan is almost killed by Freddy, Alice takes the fight to Freddy’s world. She is able to defeat him using a spell that can stop bad dreams.

Part 4 cont Kristen’s story from the previous film. In this film she is now played by Pop star Tuesday Night. Patricia Arquette at this point had become too popular of a film star to return to the Nightmare franchise, like Johnny Depp before her.   This film was the highest grossing Nightmare film at this point (years later Freddy vs Jason would top it ) Friday the 13th Part 7 The New Blood also came out this summer and this was the real Freddy vs Jason as Freddy beat Jason to the tune of $49 mil to $19 mil. This was the first Nightmare movie I had ever seen and it still holds the test of time, as with part 3 Freddy was very silly but still scary. The special effects are fantastic and, some of the characters carry over to Part 5. This was also the first time Robert Englund was on Good Morning America to promote the film series.

Nightmare on Elm St Parts 3,4,5 The Dream Trilogy

Posted in movies on April 25, 2010 by chrisdsav

I call Nightmare Parts 3,4,5  the Dream trilogy because they all have the word Dream in them and they are all connect in one way or another thru 2 main characters, in this review you will see how.

Part 3 The Dream Warriors— Kristen is having bad dreams, dreams of children jumping rope and a poem , One Two Freddy’s Coming for you, this is the beginging of terror. The last of the children of the parents that torched Freddy years ago, are all now in the psych word not able to deal with Freddy haunting them in their dreams.Joey who cannot speak, Taryn, an ex addict, Kincaid, a tough kid with behavioural problems, Phillip, a talented sculptor who it is implied has attempted to kill himself previously, Jennifer, a wannabe actress and Will, who is confined to a wheelchair. Here they meet Nancy from the first film. Her and Dr.Neil are the only one who belive these kids are being killed one by one by Freddy. As Nancy helps Kristen and the kids become Dream Warriors to fight Freddy. Dr.Neil and Nancy’s father track down the truth that Freddy is the son of a nun who comes to them as a ghost, and tell them he is the son of 100 maniacs who raped her in the asylum she worked in. This led to Freddy growing up as a demented and disturbed person.

Part 3 had many great cameos including Laurence Fishburne as a nurse at the hospital, Zsa Zsa Gabor, as her self, Heather Langenkamp returns as Nancy and John Saxson as her father. Patricia Arquette makes her feature film debut as Kristen the hero of the film after Nancy is killed. Wes Craven returned to Elm St as well as one of the writers and producers. This film is where New Line started throwing more money at the Elm St films because Freddy had become an Icon.  He appeared in everything from lunchbox to trading cards to Halloween costumes. this film was also the storyline for the Commodore 64 PC game, a kinda roleplaying Nightmare game.  The humor side of the films started in Part 3 as well, and by the 6th film Freddy was a joke. Love it or hate it this film had some of the best special effects and lines including one that Robert Englund is asked a lot to repeat,” Welcome to Prime time Bitch”. the best shot int he whole film is the giant Freddy snake tries to eat Kristen from the legs up. It’s a great obvious sexual innuendo reference . I would skip Part 2 and start with this film its the thrid best one in the series. 9/10

Nightmare on elm St Part 1 and 2 Freddy’s Revenge Reviews

Posted in movies, Uncategorized on April 22, 2010 by chrisdsav

Nightmare on Elm St

In 1984 Director Wes Craven gave us the most popular of the modern-day Horror Icons, Freddy Krueger. Based on a story he read about kids dying in their sleep do to unexplained events and using the name of a bully who tormented him as a child, he created the child serial killer Freddy Krueger. Freddy was played by Robert Englund, the first film also stared unknown at that time Johnny Depp and Heather Langenkamp.

The plot revolves around Nancy (Langenkamp) and her friends are having bad dreams about a burnt man with nives on his fingers, slaking them in their sleep. He works his way thru each teenage killing them off in the most creative ways. As Nancy tried desperately to save her friends, she uncovers the truth behind a terrible secret on Elm st.  How this boogey man in her dreams and the adults on elm St are connected in ways she could never imagine.

this was a low budget film thru New Line who was just getting started in the film industry. they needed a film to build a company on. This is why for years Newline was known as the House that Freddy built. Robert Englund would go on to become one of the biggest horror icons since Boris Karloff or Bela Lugosi.

A year Later the studio rushed into production Nightmare on Elm St Part 2 Freddy’s Revenge. Now what or who is Freddy getting his revenge against. Nobody from the first film except for him is even in it. the plot revolves around a teen and his family move into Nancy’s old house and Freddy takes possession of the boy’s body to start his killing spree again.  Many people are killed and with the help of his gf thru the power of love he is able to defeat Freddy.  this entry is the weakest for many reason, 1. Wes Craven did not want there to be a sequel to the first film, 2. The idea Freddy uses someone else to commit his killing spree instead of him self lost the fans pretty fast. The only good thing about the film is Robert Englund returns as Freddy Krueger.

You could skip this movie and go right to Part 3, which will be in our next review.

Part 1 10 /10

Part 2 4/10

The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond

Posted in Uncategorized on April 22, 2010 by chrisdsav

The Black Waters of Pond came out if u heard the show u heard my review here is an interview with one of the hottest stars from that film

The Black Waters of Echo Pond is the second Horror Movie you ever did right?

A: No, Black Waters was my third horror movie, my second was Pearblossom  AKA “Life Blood” 
 
What is you and your sister’s charecters in the movie??
 Elise played “Erica” and I played “Rene”
 
What was an eaiser exsperience for you Echos Pond or Planet Terror?
A: There is no “easy” when it comes to movie making. As glamourous as it sounds, Staying awake for 12 to 16 hours all night shoots for months can be very exhausting.  But being in set is my passion, so no matter how tired i was i still enjoyed it. I love working on every film, they feed my soul. The harder the better!
 
It seems the make up was a lot more intence than just looking glamourus like in Planet Terror??
A: Yes, very intense. The eye contacts were so funny, I kept telling Elise she looked like a baby deer. We got a kick out of the make up, we had never done anything like it. 
 
You are producer of a film coming up correct??
A: I am a producer of several films coming up, Yes. 1. “Not Another, Not Another Movie” with Chevy Chase, Burt Reynolds, Vinny Jones, and Michael Madsen. 2. “Scout’s Honor” with Chris Kattan, Kip King, and Fred Willard  and “Ushers” (Cast is a secret).
 
Which is better in front of the camera or behind?
 A: INFRONT! I love to act, I was born for it. But being behind the camera gives me a completely different rush. So I LOVE BOTH!
Now with the upcoming film Machette what is your role in that?? I understand you can’t divulge too much.
A: I can’t say anything except that I play a sexy nurse.  
 
 Thanks Elektra for coming on the show and allowing us to post this Qand A and any oen interested in a signed picture of these two lovely ladies please send a cooment to this blog to find out how.
