Day 8 of 31 Tubular Terrifying Tapes!
Today is the 8th day of 31 Tubular Terrifying Tapes which means I decided to pick not only one of my all time favorite movies, but in my eyes the best artwork featured throughout this entire month. We're talking the movie that truly set the path in making me the horror fan I am today.
A Nightmare On Elm Street.
This 1984 classic is the film that started it all. Directed by the late Wes Craven (Last House On The Left, The Hills Have Eyes.) A film loosely based off true events, Craven opened up a new world using the power of dreams, sleep, addiction, abuse, revenge, and the desperate measures a young teenage girl goes through to survive and prove she isn't crazy as the ones she cares for the most are all brutally killed by a boogyman that preys on the children of the people who originally killed him. The first film is beyond iconic, featuring some of the greatest scenes ever shown in a movie. In fact, I can't even chose just one. The film that started it all. Long before Freddy was a wisecracking villain he was a dark demon of a man who murdered and sexualy amused young children. Any person's worst nightmare brought into reality. With a wonderful final girl, and the best deaths ever shown on the silver screen, this STUNNING artwork has always caught my eye of Nancy laying in bed. Will another Elm Street make the list?
Only time will tell...
