    A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

    A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

    Nine, Ten, Freddy’s back in theaters again–and Now Playing is back also with the ultimate review in our Nightmare on Elm Street retrospective series as we review the brand new Nightmare on Elm Street movie. Gone are Robert Englund and Wes Craven, replaced by Jackie Earl Haley and Samuel Bayer, bringing a new, darker Freddy to a new generation of horror lovers. Join Stuart, Arnie, and Brock as they review this film, giving a review from the point of view of a horror fan, a Freddy fan, and a newbie to horror films. We compare the new Nightmare on Elm Street to the original, and wrap up our entire Nightmare on Elm Street reflecting on the series as a whole, Freddy’s place in the pantheon of horror icons, and comparing how the new Nightmare reboot compares to other recent horror reboots. Does Jackie Earl Haley give audiences the dangerous, evil Freddy they’d always dreamed of? Listen to find out!

    Freddy vs. Jason - Freddy Focus

    Freddy vs. Jason - Freddy Focus

    Having already fallen for the strong silent type during last year’s Friday The 13th retrospective, Now Playing switches teams for the guy with a good sense of humor in this totally new review of Freddy vs Jason. Is this crossover cage match a fitting farewell to Robert England’s Krueger, or are fans of the Nightmare on Elm Street series the real losers in this showdown of the slasher movie icons? Listen in and find out!

    Wes Craven's New Nightmare

    1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you! The reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theaters April. You can start getting ready now with the hosts of Now Playing as we revisit and review all the films in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. A decade after A Nightmare On Elm Street, Freddy was living the dream – he had the souls, the stardom, the house and kids, and most importantly the reputation as one of cinema’s most celebrated killers. But what Kruegar really wants to do is direct! So now The Evil Formerly Known As Freddy (TEFKAF) steps out of the movies to meet his makers. Is Craven’s post-modern reinvention an inspired new direction for the series, or a trail of breadcrumbs leading nowhere? Listen and find out!

    Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

    Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

    After audiences threw the baby out with the bad slaughter in their mass rejection of Dream Child, New Line knew the days of turning Freddy into Benjamins was drawing short. The sixth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street series pulls out all the stops – 3-D special effects, star cameos, and a fully revealed origin story…but is the Final Nightmare a fitting finale or a flaccid funeral? Listen to find out!

Do they like horror?

I gave 4 stars bc I think the hosts are well spoken and I love the topics. But after listening to nightmare, Friday 13 I have to ask. Do y’all actually like horror? It seems like y’all just rip on every movie. Nothing positive

Vaultimate ,

Stu, just hush with that.

I binged all but the last two over a long work day and Stu really got on my nerves. Are these movies high art? No! The other hosts seemed to recognize that and while they could critique the series with a measured perspective, Stu took every opportunity to communicate how “he had outgrown” slashers. Then move on and take your sub par mst3k barbs with you. (By the way a one star review for a 10 year old podcast? Yeah but it’s just as petty as Stu’s contribution to the podcast.)

They don't know what they are talking about

They call themselves fans, but have no business talking about this franchise, because they are clearly snobs.
