Horror Films (2)

This weeks horrifying viewing.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4
Continuing on with my viewing of the Elm Street films (I bought the box set so I feel I have to see all of them) we come onto part 4. Filmed very definitely in the 80's (check out the hairdo's!) more Freddy nonsense with some ridiculous nightmares that frankly are much funnier than frightening - definitely one to miss
The Phantom of the Opera
Onto a proper horror film - the great Lon Chaney starring as the Phantom. Chaney, known as the man with a thousand faces, created his own make up and often went through considerable pains to achieve his look. The first moment we see the Phantom's face is still a great moment and although not scary particularly still worth watching
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5 - the dream child
Hilarious sequel where Freddy haunts the dreams of a survivor of the previous film - but how does he come to her when she is awake? Why he invades the dreams of her unborn baby of course! Absolutely ridiculous once again - watch at your peril!
The classic Dracula film starring Bela Lugosi. Quite slow and interestingly we never see his fangs or actually see him bite anyone's neck, but I love it for the line "Hear my children of the night - what sweet music they sing!" as the wolves are howling. Great film
Nightmare on Elm Street 6 - Freddy's Dead
Not yet he isn't - more dream nonsense! I have only one more film to watch in this series and I have heard that it is the best sequel . Let's hope it is better than this which is beyond awful - terrible acting, terrible special effects and plot, surely it can't get any worse?
That's my run up of this weeks viewing some good and some awful
Next week - Frankenstein, Wes Craven's New Nightmare, Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde and more!
