Nine Days of Nightmares: An Introduction.

Hello fellow geeks, Rick here.
In commemeration of the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, we are going to be bringing you our reviews on all of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and of course Freddy Vs. Jason. 
Why would I even think of proposing such a thing? Allow me to explain.  I am a HUGE Freddy Krueger fan.  Freddy was essentially my gateway film into the slasher genre.  My mom was really hesitant to let me and my brother watch the movies because she thought that we might be too scared by the stuff in the movies.  I made a deal with her.  If I could handle the just about to be released TV show, Freddy's Nightmares, then she would rent one of the movies for us to see.  Well, that first episode was was Freddy centric, while later episodes only have him at the beginning and the of the shows. 

Mom held true to her promise that she would rent one of the movies for us.  We went with Part 3 which was the one that I had seen the trailers for and I wanted to see that one.  I was 11 at the time.  I immediately fell in love with the character and the concept of being stalked in dreams.  I absolutely love Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger.  That first movie he is absolutely menacing but in later movies, you can see Englund starting to really have some fun with the character.  Anyway, stay tuned for tomorrow when we bring you 9 Days of Nightmares!

Until then, Stay Geeky!  Power to the Different!
