Sole Survivors: Ranking The Final Girls Of Horror Films
The Fear Fan is back with the last of his reviews of the Elm Street series! In this episode, see for yourself how a modern big-budget remake can somehow fail to be as technically proficient as a film made thirty years prior, and learn just why producer Michael Bay should stay the hell away from the world of horror movies.
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.
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!
“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!”
“So far, the Fear Fan’s been lucky enough to have actually enjoyed all three movies in the Elm Street franchise so far, but will his luck continue? In a word: No.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
