VIDEO: Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991)

Join the Fear Fan as he takes on Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, the sixth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Although it’s been smooth sailing so far, with five good-to-decent entries, things are about to get much, much worse for the Fear Fan as he enters a world of terrible humor, bad acting, Roseanne and Tom Arnold cameos, cartoon sound effects, and a retcon so awful that it could disrupt the very fabric of the space time continuum!

VIDEO: Top 10 Vampires

While you count down to 2012, join the Fear Fan as he counts down his list of the top 10 greatest vampires in movie history. With some obvious choices (Max Shreck) and some not-so-obvious choices (Pee-Wee Herman?), one thing’s for sure: none of these vampires sparkle!

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

“Fear Fan looks at the fifth installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, where Alice (one of the survivors of Part 4) learns that Freddy wants to return to the real world by invading the subconscious of her unborn baby. Witness Freddy’s nun-rape origins, a nerd getting terrorized inside a comic book, death by overeating, and a special appearance by Baby Freddy!”

VIDEO: Shocker (1989)

“This time on Terror Obscura, it’s 1989’s Shocker, director Wes Craven’s failed attempt to create a film franchise to rival his own Nightmare on Elm Street series. In it, a high school football player (played by Friday Night Lights director Peter Berg) faces off against an executed serial killer (a scenery-chewing Skinner from The X-Files) with the power to jump into the bodies of other people. Berg is forced to pursue him from body to body, across the broadcast airwaves, and eventually through all of television. But more importantly, there’s a cameo by John Tesh!”

VIDEO: The Funhouse (1981)

“In this episode, Fear Fan watches Tobe Hooper’s entry in the carnival-based horror film genre, 1981’s The Funhouse! In this by-the-numbers thriller, two teenage couples go to a traveling fun fair, and decide to spend the night in the fun house ride, only to be trapped inside and terrorized by creepy carnies and a deformed ride operator. This movie has everything you’d expect from slasher films of the ‘80s: clueless teens, a psycho killer, and of course, massive amounts of padding!”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

“The Fear Fan’s reviews of the Elm Street series continue with A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors. Of all the sequels, this is probably the most popular, but does it deserve to be? Find out what happens when the Fear Fan is confronted by horrifying puppetry, Dungeons & Dragons, and the eternal horror that is a hover nun.”

VIDEO: Monsters (2010)

“The Fear Fan goes indie with Monsters, a relatively low budget monster movie that managed to get some decent reviews when it was first released. Fear Fan went into this one with high expectations, but does it live up to them? To put it simply: Hell no.”

VIDEO: Captain America (1990)

“In this episode, Fear Fan leaves behind the world of horror movies to examine the awful 1990 direct-to-video Albert Pyun-directed Captain America, starring Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty, and J.D. Salinger’s son as Cap. Our own Stan Ferguson previously covered the 1979 Reb Brown version, but this one is much worse, despite being a lot more faithful to the comics.”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)

“The Fear Fan takes on 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge! Some people say it’s the worst entry in the series, others say it’s the gayest entry in any horror series. But no matter how you slice it, this movie has one hell of a reputation. Can the Fear Fan find any redeeming qualities among a sea of naked man ass, killer parakeets, and dance moves bad enough to peel paint? Watch and find out!”

VIDEO: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)

“Everybody’s favorite kaiju does battle with Mechagodzilla, a robot Godzilla clone created by the Simians, an ape-like race from the Third Planet from the Black Hole who have come to conquer Earth, starting with Okinawa. And yes, that’s really the plot. Come for the giant monsters kicking ass, stay for the musical numbers!”

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

“Welcome to the first episode of a brand new series, where your host Fear Fan explores the best and worst horror films ever made! In this episode, take a trip into the demented mind of Wes Craven as we watch his greatest creation: 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp, John Saxon, and Robert Englund as the original Freddy Krueger!”
