#8 and #9 of 31 Horror Films in 31 Days: Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and New Nightmare
Two great tastes that (mostly) go great together.
#7 of 31 Horror Films in 31 Days: Wes Craven’s Shocker
Wow.I can’t even remember why or how I ever liked this one, but goodlord it is bad. I mean, I guess since I was only 17 when it was released, I can cut myself some slack. BUT IT IS SO BAD.
#6 of 31 Horror Films in 31 Days: Wes Craven’s Deadly Friend.
Had high hopes for this one when I saw it in the theater, since it was his follow-up to A Nightmare on Elm Street. Unfortunately, it’s just. gahhh. It’s so terrible, it’s not even terrible enough to be good.
#5: 31 Horror Films in 31 Days - Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs.
So hilariously over the top! Hated it in the theater, love it now…mostly because of Wendy Robie and Everett McGill.
"I don’t want to see another cop or another cookie in all my life!"
My Wes Craven love continues with #4 in my 31 horror films in 31 days: The Serpent and the Rainbow.
I can’t even tell you how many times I watched this as a teenager. Between this and The Believers, I was obsessed with learning all I could about Voodoo magic.
And…number #3 in my 31 horror films in 31 days is up! Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes.
I was actually surprised how terrifying it is, even with all the 1977 kitsch (and not-so-great origin story).
