10.17.06Alamo Village I'd never seen this theatrically... so I did. I feel like I've already put down all the notes I need to about this movie... it seemed pretty familiar this time... but I guess I'm still glad I saw it on the big screen. Pretty new print... and by that i mean the new print was pretty, not just pretty new.
06.24.06Borrowed Can I make it through all 7 Nightmares on Elm Street? We'll see.

This one is actually good and Freddy is genuinely scary. I think a lot of what makes him scary in this one is that his skin is wet and glisteny... like it's still newly burnt and all shiny and leaking plasma and pus and whatnot... in later movies he looks made out of plastic.

it's also interesting to see the ending where Freddy's destroyed in a much more high-level way... yet the movie ends in a dream.

well, the credits are over. time for Freddy's Revenge!
