FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

Y'all better get some sleep this weekend...

...'cause there ain't gonna be no sleepin' next week, for it'll be THE NIGHTMARE-ENING around these parts!

if you only knew how long it took me to make this...

That's right, I'll be going through/watching/talking about every film in the Nightmare on Elm Street series–well, most of them. New Nightmare happened recently enough that I won't be revisiting it. But everything else? Sure! Well, maybe sure. I'm honestly still undecided about Freddy vs Jason because I hated it so much. But that was 73 years ago, so maybe my feelings have changed? We'll see. One cannot plan that far ahead when one lives a life as reckless as mine. But I swear, all the other films! There are some I haven't seen, even! Very exciting. I hope you'll be around–just don't. Fall. Asleep.

C'mon! New Nightmare is required after the shiteousness of the previous 2 films. Still, awesome idea. :D

It would definitely be a good palate cleanser! That's the problem with mainlining these horror series...the crap is all at the end. At least I'm not doing an actual marathon this time, that should help preserve my sanity a bit.

Awesome!

I have to admit, when I clicked on the site and was suddenly confronted with Freddie/briefcase lady, it kind of freaked me out.

I don't think I will ever stop laughing at that picture. I am going to laugh myself right into the grave!!!!

Back...in the saddle...again.

One of the best lines ever, although I never got into the NOES series much. Good luck!

Oh God. You've got a stronger will than I do. I try to do what you're doing and routinely crap out after #3.

Nicholas Kaufmann said...

Not that #2 is so easy to sit through either, I might add. ;-)

I just re-watched III last week for the first time since high school. There's so much I didn't remember: like that Angelo Badalamenti did the music or that Lawrence Fishburne was a nurse.

So looking forward to this. . .

@Nicholas - I'm cutting myself some slack this time with the "one a day" approach...I don't think I'd get through a marathon intact!

I nearly bought the box-set the other day, but wondered if it was worth it for three good movies.

I can't wait for next week! YAAAAAAASSSSS Briefcase Lady! Get it, girl.

Freddy vs Jason is almost redeemed by one line

"Dude that goalie was pissed about something."

Aw, Freddy vs Jason is awesome! It's funny and ties both properties in pretty well, I thought. I hope you change your mind and do it!
