I love horror movies, so I'm watching one a day in October. There's no rhyme or reason to the flicks I'm watching. Some I've never seen, some I have. Join the discussion on Twitter with #31Movies31Days
Day 29: Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994)
Director: Wes Craven
Starring: Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, Miko Hughes, John Saxon
Freddy Krueger is one of the Big Five when it comes to your slasher types. Along with Jason, Michael Myers, Leatherface and Chucky, ol' Freddy has been around for decades, hacking up teenagers and making jokes all along the way. A long series of sequels, each varying degrees of quality, really watered down Frederick. This was a character that was a demonic child molester who murdered people in their sleep. He should have been the scariest of the bunch. Instead he became comic relief. And then the studio killed him.
