on Sunday, May 29, 2011
Welcome to the first episode of a brand new series here at the Agony Booth, Terror Obscura, where your host Fear Fan explores the best and worst horror films ever made! While some shows are content to just mock bad films, this one isn't afraid to take even the most sacred of cows to the slaughterhouse.
In this episode, the Fear Fan takes a trip into the demented mind of Wes Craven and watches 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!

“Just like with Christopher Nolan’s films, the action isn’t very exciting, and it feels forced into the story because the filmmakers were afraid no one would care about a sci-fi movie without explosions and shootouts.”Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994)
Follow the Fear Fan on his first journey into the world of meta-horror with Wes Craven's New Nightmare, starring Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and other cast and crew members from the Elm Street series playing themselves.God Told Me To (1976)

"Speaking for myself, when I think of shows airing in 1984 that needed a Christmas episode, V comes in dead last, behind even Airwolf. By the end of this recap, I’m sure you’ll agree with me."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!”Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Had no idea Alan Arkin would appear in a Tim Burton movie! Seriously!
