Cronenberg Horror Classics

My older brother introduced me to David Cronenberg’s movies when we were teenagers in the 90s, and he recently encouraged me to watch Shivers again, which I did. What a wild movie! Nobody else can bring to cinema what Cronenberg brings, both intellectually and visually. Curious to learn more about Cronenberg’s horror classics, I watched the video below that ranks them. It led me to watch The Brood, which, to me, was not as good as I had expected. I prefer Cronenberg’s other horror gems like Dead Ringers and The Fly to that one.

Paper Cup Ghosts

I love the simplicity of this Halloween craft. All you need are some white paper cups and a black marker, which are easy enough to get at a dollar store. Turn the cups upside down, draw goofy ghost faces and—voilĂ !

Horror Cinema Trivia: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

The basic premise of Wes Craven’s New Nightmare—Freddy invading the real world and haunting the actors and crew responsible for the Nightmare on Elm Street films—was originally intended to be used for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), but the idea was rejected by the studio at the time.

In the movie’s ending credits, Freddy Krueger is credited as himself, even though Robert Englund reprises the role.
