This low-budget, super-natural horror flick really packs a punch. A bit of a slow-burner, but once this thing gets going the tension really holds and the script keeps you guessing. With jump scares throughout, this small film satisfies.
“I like when the boovs and the humans get together.”
“You know the part in scary movies when somebody does something really stupid, and everybody hates them for it? This is it.”
The content is disturbing; the humour is pitch black; the violence is graphic; the script is air-tight; the movie is brilliant. I was completely riveted while watching this film and I was horrified at what was making me laugh. This movie is terrific throughout with a devastating ending.
This October I plan on going a little mad. I went through all of my movies and compiled a list of horror films. The list started with 230 movies. It has now been whittled down to 31. The list is mainly comprised of films I have yet to see and ones that I haven’t seen …
1. Great Dictator, The 2. North By Northwest 3. Das Boot 4. Oldboy (2003) 5. WALL-E Just Missed The Cut: Django Unchained, M, The Prestige, Return Of The Jedi, Vertigo Need To See: Amelie, Cinema Paradiso, Citizen Kane, Paths Of Glory, Princess Mononoke Comedy Hi-Lites: American Beauty, Inside Out Horror Hi-Lites: Alien, Aliens, The Shining
“Do not, my friends, become addicted to water. It will take hold of you, and you will resent its absence!”
Outside of the original, this is easily the best of the Elm Street movies. The makeup and special effects still hold up. Robert Englund gets some great material to work with and he delivers the scares and the laughs. The marionette death scene remains one of the best kills in the horror genre.
