The Freddy Thready

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Was New Nightmare the meta one with the real actors playing characters? Because I thought that fucking sucked.

I remember New Nightmare being quite good and original.
I find New Nightmare's reputation quite overstated. Good concept, very shoddy and padded execution.
Freddy's Dead has my favorite black new Yaphet Kotto.
I can't even begin to think what you meant here.
He meant black Jew.

God damn it, yes. Was typing on a phone on a train.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I haven't seen it in years and to be honest, it wasn't as cool as I had hoped. I have it on dvd, so I should give it a rewatch. Pretty cool idea for something to be that self aware. Particularly pre-Scream.

First, that gif is everything good about everything good.

Second, I couldn't share any specifics about episodes, but I did watch it fairly regularly at the time. Just an anthology show like the Twilight Zone. Nothing to knock your socks off, but entertaining enough. I see that Daily Motion has some episodes up.

Wow it seems so long ago I watched that series. I remember the first one where Freddy is had up for child murdering and gets off because wasn't read his Miranda rights. Tobe Hooper produced it and I thought it was good but I'll be damned if I can remember any of the others.

Me and Miss D just watched the first two movies back to back and although a little dated I thought they were still great fun. Will continue through the box set tonight I remember how the movies get progressively worse.

I like Dream Warriors much more than the first one.
