Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown

First e-barfed about Slasher House on November 8, 2010. Promptly forgot about it on November 9, 2010. Not a fan of slasher movies, so I went back to combing my hair. The reason I even bring it up is that there’s a sorta sequel (actually, more a spin-off), called Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown, who was a colorfully harmful character in Slasher House.

Hmmm, where did I put my comb?

While the slasher genre bores the living sandwich outta me, there are those in the community that buys into this kind of horror movie. I’ll say this for Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown – cool movie posters. And I’ll let them say this about the movie…

Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown

“1990 Oklahoma: Carlton Layton arrived home to find his wife in the arms of another man, he went out to his van and donned the clown suit that he used as a children’s entertainer and proceeded to slaughter his wife and her lover. All of this was witnessed by his 5 year old daughter and Carlton escaped into the night leaving his little girl behind.”

“5 Years Later: Halloween night and Carley, a young college student, is hired to take care of a little girl as her parents head out to a Halloween party, but someone one is waiting, someone wants the girl, someone who we know as The Cleaver…”

Slasher House

Always Halloween night and always a college coed. When will filmmakers unhitch from that super dumb/cliched merry-go-round?

Anyway, Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown comes out just in time for…Halloween.

The Confession of Fred Krueger

Did you know Freddy Krueger’s middle name is Charles, or that he was originally known as the Springwood Slasher? I’ve watched all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies/sequels and did not know that. Maybe it came up, but I was probably in the kitchen looking for a sandwich of some kind to fill that empty place in my stomach the Elm Street movies left in me.

So why, after 10 movies and a somewhat craptacular TV series in 2005 (A Nightmare on Elm Street: Real Nightmares), am I still feeling unfulfilled? Because there simply wasn’t enough backstory on Freddy. Oh sure, they tried to half-assedly throw something together in the 2010 re-make. But to my sandwich-minded mind, it wasn’t enough.

The Confession of Fred Krueger

Now, with the release of the fan made film The Confession of Fred Krueger, I might be able to get some closure. Debuting at Indianapolis’ Horror Hound Weekend in September, CoFK looks to fill in all the gaping holes in the Freddy Krueger mythology. Here’s what’s in store…

The Confession of Fred Krueger

“The Springwood Police Department has just arrested a man named Fred Krueger, a janitor at the local power plant whom they believe to be the notorious Springwood Slasher. A filthy child murderer who killed 20 children over a five year long reign of terror on the nice suburban Ohio town. Krueger has been brought to the station to be interrogated by the department’s senior lieutenant. Sit down with one of the most charismatic and sinister man to ever walk the earth and hear him tell his story.”

Time to go grocery shopping for some sandwich fixins – don’t want to miss a single bite of this one.
