I really hate to be a buzzkill (not really, this is a lie) but I have to confess, I’m not a huge fan of the 80’s horror “classic” “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” I know this is an unpopular position, but despite his popularity as an early 90’s Halloween costume, Freddy Krueger just never did it for me as a horror movie villain. Maybe it was the fact that he dresses like he’s trying out for a high school ska band or maybe I’m just not that intimidated by his Swiss Army knife fingers. Either way, he’s just not my first choice if I’m looking to spend an hour or two watching teenagers get sliced and diced. Still, as you know, I hate to be a hater. That’s why I’m so glad that I can outsource the task to this seasonally appropriate edition of Cinema Sins.
Frankly 119 individual crimes in cinema is a little steep even by my black-hearted estimation, but it’s better to be thorough. At any rate, it’s October, so it’s almost inevitable that someone in your life is going to try to force you to watch this movie. Now you are forearmed with 119 reasons to say “no thanks.” Consider this my festive Halloween gift to you. Don’t try to return it, I didn’t keep the receipt.
