Day 30 of the 30 Day Horror Challenge
Day 30 – Your favorite horror film of all time…
Man, it’s difficult for me to pick a favorite anything. Food? I like pizza and hot dogs. Baseball players? I like Griffey and Sabo and Stillwell. TV show? I like “Chuck” and “Smallville.” To make me pick a favorite something is like asking me which eye I want poked out.
In a way, my selection of the original 1984 A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET brings this challenge full-circle, having selected the remake on day 1 as “a horror film no one would expect you to love, but you do.” The original has a lot going for it: one of the most recognizable modern-day monsters, a megastar actor in his pre-megastar days, a legendary writer/director, and a foundation strong enough to carry several sequels and spin-offs.
