Still Scary After All These Years
One, two, Freddys coming for you. Three, four, better lock your door.... If that misappropriated nursery rhyme sends chills down your spine, then you remember A Nightmare on Elm Street, the horror film that launched a million sleepless nights (and shone a light on a delicious new actor named Johnny Depp) back in 1984. Twenty-two years, six sequels, and one DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince song later, Freddy Krueger continues to scare viewers with his molten skin and razor-sharp fingernails. Robert Englund infused irreverent humor into the villainous character, and the writing and direction is Wes Craven at his best. To celebrate the special-edition-DVD release, A Nightmare on Elm Street will return to the big screen (with bonus features!) for two nights only. Horror fanatics should head out to Regal South Beach Cinema 18 tonight at 8:00. Tickets cost ten dollars. Visit www.bigscreenboxoffice.com.
