  1. Before I share thoughts and other things, I want to pass over a little tip regarding IMDb. The board you normally post for discussion and feedback is essentially run by sock puppets, probably from a handful of people, maybe less. You won’t find much of what you’re looking from there. Going retro for a moment, your poll on “Best Freddy Kills”, for your most recent episode, could have been posted on the boards for each individual Nightmare film, as well the crossover. You would not have been spamming, It would have been a relevant topic, and you’d maximize the number of people who read and participate. Keep that in mind for any ensuing podcast polls. For instance, when you do one for Carrie, you could potentially create a thread for each of the three Carrie film boards – one more than I thought had been made (didn’t know of the 2013 one). To Rich: best of luck on whatever problems you’re facing.

    I watched the documentary “Never Sleep Again: The Elm St Legacy”. Whoa, what a trip down memory lane! My memories of images and scenes from a bulk of the Nightmare movies have become interchangeable and intertwined. Some of the most memorable kills for me turned out to be in Freddy’s Dead, which probably has something to do with my seeing that in theatres, what was supposed to be the final Freddy was my introduction to the lovable child predator. The last time I watched a “Freddy Krueger” movie was back in high school, where I saw “Freddy vs Jason” in a theatre. With all that time having passed, I had forgotten how much a part of pop culture Krueger was back in the late 80s-mid 90s. Pinball machines, Freddy hotline, I had forgotten about those things. Freddy Krueger, along with the crypt keeper, was the “Barney and Friends” for kids like me. I’m not hiding in the dinosaur closet, though – I liked Barney, too. What can I say? I also have a gentle, snuggly side.

    The days when I watched these movies, when VHS was the norm (which lacked the extra features, a privilege we’re now accustomed thanks to DVD), I was not aware of a lot of Englund’s contributions to Freddy Krueger. The improvisation lines he added (you know at least one of them), the stance and overall demeanor were Robert’s brush strokes. Along with Wes Craven, David Miller, and any of the other makeup/costume people who designed the original, and subsequent, gloves – Robert Englund claims just as much stake as creator of Frederick Charles Krueger.
