This should come to as no surprise to anybody who’s been following Horror Week. as if we can allow this week and month to end without talking about John Carpenter’s seminal horror film, Halloween.
To end Horror Week, we decided to have another discussion and this time Kennisha and Andres will be talking about some of the best uses of the Final Girl trope.
All my former emo kids, get in formation, for we are gonna be talking about The Nightmare Before Christmas. This movie came out in 1993, exactly 23 years ago; a very fine age if you ask me. These were the good years, beautiful babies were born, some of these babies even became writers out there in the world… Okay, let’s be serious now. This week at The Film Queue we are discussing horror films and I am the weakling of the writers for I cannot watch a scary movie without crying and having nightmares for at least a week… So why not dive into the cult movie that sparked the emo fiber in so many of us instead?
I’ve loved Nightmare on Elm Street as a child and continued to love it into my adulthood. There are so many things that I find lovable about this film but I’ll begin with my appreciation of Freddy Krueger himself.
