All Hallows' Eve 2

Here’s a good idea – make a Halloween-themed horror movie and release it on December 1. I know it makes you sick to your stomach think about it, but while they’re at it, why not release an Easter-themed movie on Groundhog’s Day?

Not sure why the folks behind All Hallows’ Eve 2, the sequel to 2013’s All Hallows’ Eve, have decided to bypass October altogether for their movie release. October is the reigning champ for all things horror, albeit out-pacing Christmas by a slim margin.

And since they’re screwing it up with the release, why not go all the way and issue a sales poster accompanied by absolutely no plot information whatsoever? How difficult can it be to burp out a blurb? If you don’t want anyone to see the movie, you’re going about it in the right way.

All Hallows Eve

Here’s what went down in All Hallows’ Eve, the first one:

While watching two children on Halloween night, the babysitter finds an old VHS tape in the kids’ trick or treat bag. The tape features three tales of terror, all linked together by a murderous clown. As the night goes on, strange things begin to occur in the house. It isn’t long before the babysitter learns the horrifying truth…the maniacal clown is slowly working his way into her reality.”

I’m assuming All Hallows’ Eve 2 continues the maniacal ways of Art the Clown and includes more linked horror tales. Guess I won’t find out as I’ll be well into my Christmas horror season of movies by then. Art’s just gonna have to wait until next year until I get my seasonal flavor back.

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.
