Ultimate A Nightmare On Elm Street Thread
Well, Jason has one, and Michael has one. So well thought we better have something for the dream master. Weather you like the sequels or not you have to admit that the original is one of the best, and well done Horror movies to date. So i decided to make one for Freddy Krueger, talk about how good the original is, or how crap you think the sequels are, even the remake that is bound to hit us. I myself dont mind the sequels, but the original out shines them all. What are your thoughts?

Umm, I think this has been done before sir, if not. NOES is my second favorite franchise out there

Actually, there are only Threads for snigle films, not all in general.

Righteous :)
Freddy is WAYYY better than Jason, much more quality films :-D if it wasn't for Halloween III I would say that the title belongs to Micheal but as it stands I think Freddy has the most quality and consistent series, save for A New Nightmare, which wasn't part of the actual canon series but it was still a great Freddy movie:mrgreen:

Nice thread. My fave NOES films would have to be the first, closely followed be Dream Warriors.

Dobe Dobe 12-05-2008 06:24 PM

ANOES was consistently bad in every way and a worthless franchise.

I like this series overall. Not my fav, but no big complaints that would stop me from watching any of them.

The Box set is pretty killer too.
