Tribute Video: A Nightmare on Elm Street series - Legends Never Die

Freddy in shadow

Horror may be my primary obsession, but it is by no means my only one. I've also taken to creating fanvids, which you can sort of think of as visual remixes of movies or television set to popular music (examples of my work can be found here, here, and here). Generally speaking, the friends I've made in the vidding community are separate from the ones I've made in the horror community, but sometimes there's a crossover which gives me great joy. The fanvid I'm presenting now involves one such crossover.

Eunice is a friend whose interests tend to run fairly parallel to my own, even though she's a much more talented vidder than I am. In her latest creation, set to the Plasmatics' "Legends Never Die," she explores the mythos of Freddy Krueger, from the Nightmare on Elm Street series. Of particular note is the way that she firmly reasserts Freddy as the spectral force of evil that he stopped being around the third or fourth film. You can see the vid after the jump.(read more...)

Remake Round-up: "The Fly", "The Crazies", "A Nightmare on Elm Street"

Crazies 2010 poster

Three pieces of remake-related news for those interested. First off, apparently Fox's remake of David Cronenberg's The Fly is still happening, according to THR's Risky Business Blog, this time with Cronenberg himself attached as a writer (and possibly as a director). While this is an odd move for Cronenberg, whose seen greater box office success and mainstream acceptance since he switched from horror to crime thrillers, it's not completely befuddling. Cronenberg recently directed Howard Shore's recent opera version of The Fly, which played in Paris and Los Angeles. Maybe he still has insects on the brain.

New Line and Platinum Dunes Bring Back Freddy Krueger

Bloody Disgusting first broke the news in January that New Line Cinema was considering a return to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, but had no solid ideas. Today, The Hollywood Report brings the official word -- New Line will team up with Michael Bay's remake-machine production company Platinum Dunes for what appears to be a remake of the 1984 original.(read more...)

"Freddy vs. Jason 2" -- Maybe Yes, Maybe No

Yes, it just might. Rumor spouting machine and Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, recently spoke to JoBlo.com about why Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash fell through, and what to expect in a future film incarnation featuring the two titular titans of terror. Englund hints at Michael Meyers entering the fray, but who knows if that will happen. To read the interview (which also brings up the topic of a possible "V" miniseries), simply click the following link: http://joblo.com/index.php?id=7389 .

Have an Idea for "Freddy vs. Jason 2"?

Freddy vs. Jason 2's development status has been on and off. First we hear it's going to happen, and that Ash will be joining the battle, then we hear that that idea has been completely scrapped, then we hear that there are no plans for the sequel, then we hear there are, then we hear there aren't again, and so on and so forth. Well, Creature-corner.com recently reported that they've had a chance to speak with the vice-president of production at New Line Cinema, and he said the following about FvJ2:

"Unfortunately, there are no current plans for a sequel…Would love to hear from fans if this is disappointing to them. Also, would love to know what story they would want to see since the Ash match-up hasn't worked out."(read more...)

B-Books Bring Movie Killers to the Written Page

So you thought that you'd seen the last of Jason X, eh? Apparently, not only is the robotic Power Ranger-form of Jason Vorhees back, but so is his original, Camp Crystal Lake-residing self, along with Freddy K., and for the first time in a long while, the two won't be part of the same franchise. You see, this new book company called Black Flame Publishing (http://www.blackflame.com/blackflame.html) has recently reared its wonderfully ugly head, and it has been given permission from New Line Cinema to create new, original sequels to the famous slasher franchises we know and love… in book-form. Black Flame publisher Marc Gascoigne recently spoke to Fangoria.com about the new horror lines his company is creating, and here's a bit of what he had to say:(read more...)
