I mean, that's great and all and thanks for the Munster history lesson, but perhaps, and stay with me here, Rob Zombie just enjoys driving the Munster Koach around because he's a huge Munsters fan, he wanted to make a song about it, and "Dragula" was just a much catchier name and fit the song better?

Well, yeah, he's gonna direct a film reboot of it this year, apparently.

It feels like there was a real glut of these in the 1980s after Amityville et al, but most of them were horrible crap, and then poo poo was driven into the ground when affordable CGI made bad effects easier than ever and people forgot that your imagination is almost always scarier than some crappy CGI render (I'm thinking of crap like the remake of House on Haunted Hill).

There have to be good haunted house movies out there, right?

His House, it's a Netflix original, and it's very good

I like the Changeling. It's got a great melancholy atmosphere and George C Scott just works well with ghosts

The Changeling is one that I didn't like at first, but it sorta grew on me over time. It's also a great movie to watch on a rainy evening while you slurp down some Korean Hot Chicken Ramen. :yum:

My 4/20 movie this year was Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. I only saw Ganja & Hess for the first time a few months ago, so it was pretty fresh in my mind. My spouse prefers the original, but I enjoyed the contemporary style of the remake. Some of the soundtrack choices were bizarre.

Knowing that it was a very close remake, maybe I went in with more patience for the more hazy experimental aspects. I felt like I derived a clearer statement from the remake, posing the question of how to be ethical in a fallen world, and the impossibility of exempting yourself from the cycle of violence.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Trip Report:

Holy poo poo that owned.

My only real issue (aside from some shall we say questionable acting, but poo poo, it's a horror movie, what do you expect) was that the movie felt kind of rushed. Like it could have used another half hour or so to let the atmosphere build up, now it felt extremely rapid fire.

Freddy himself was much less of a quip machine than I expected, but I guess that's something that comes with the later movies. Now the most we got was the "I'm your boyfriend now" bit which was just ... drat.

I loved the inventivness of the kills, there were a lot of really cool shots in there and the soundtrack was extremely cool.

As was the very ending.

All in all a very good time and I have to fight the urge to jump straight into Elm Street II.

I really envy you a first watch of ANOES. It’s a legitimate classic IMO. Many memorable iconic scenes, that really take advantage of the surreal dream reality of the film. Freddy’s super long arms in the early outdoor scene. Freddy stretching through the wall. Tina in the body bag appearing in the dream during class. “No running in the hallway!” The stairs collapsing into marshmallow goo. The convertible in the final scene being decked out in Freddy colors.

So, Near Dark.

And if yes, how can I watch it? I wanted to for an October challenge thing a few years ago but came up empty.

Yes it is definitely worth watching.

You'll have to ask a goon for a favor or get creative, because I have no idea where you can rent it or stream it.

Maybe a top ten horror movie of all time.

$$$. They made no bones about making Freddy more appealing to as broad an audience as possible to sell merch. Rap albums, toys, tv spinoffs, 1-800 hotlines, talk show appearances. Freddy was the biggest thing on the planet for a couple of years, and a big part of that was a consumer base way younger than Craven had ever intended.
