I just watched part one last week...........and part of 2........I have a dvd that has all first 4 movies.

Freddy scared me as a kid I would sleep with my legs and arms crossed because that would keep me safe from Freddy in my little mind [Smile]

Now I can really enjoy them for all the 80s scary teen movies they are!

i haven't watched the freddy movies in a while, except part 1.

i want to revisit part 4..to see if i still like it.. it's been so long. that 'roach' thing always gave me the willies!

i would have to say that part 1 and 3 are the best.. while one is classic.. part 3 is creepy too.

Part one will always be the scariest and the best of the franchise for me. Freddy Krueger was more of a monster than a practical joker, which he became later on in the series. That scene where he chases Tina down the alley is downright creepy. It still gives me the chills. And who could forget Glen being sucked into his bed and then being shot out in a volcano of blood?

The best of the sequels, without a doubt, is number 3. I liked how Nancy returned and acted like a mentor to the group of teenagers to help them fight Freddy together. Not to mention Heather Langenkamp was extremely beautiful in this one.

the scariest i think is the first, but its hard to choose a favorite out of the first four.

the sixth was the weakest, five was decent.

5 is the worst for me. When I first seen New Nightmare I liked it, but have hated it the times since.

I don't really care for New Nightmare. I like the post-modern concept of it, but in a lot of ways the movie just falls flat for me.

The first is most def the scariest. After that, they weren't scary anymore. But 3 is my favourite. 4 is pretty good. 2 is a piece of crap, 5 is somewhat watchable, but not that great. The rest I don't remember, even though I have the box set, and have watched them all recently.

I like them all....including New Nightmare. Part 3, Dream Warriors, will always be my favorite. I love the soundtrack as well. Dokken is one of my favorite bands ever too!

I just rewatched Dream Warriors last night and it was as scary and good as I remembered it. What I noticed this time out was Jennifer Rubin's performance as Taryn, the recovering heroin addict. She totally stole the show with her part and did a fantastic job. My only complaint was that Taryn got killed off early and didn't get to participate in the final battle.

BTW, I really liked the punk outfit she wore in her dream.

"In my dreams I'm beautiful. And bad!"

Indeed!

I also liked Ira Heiden's role as Will and felt so sad when he died. I would have figured that he'd survive the movie because he was the "brains" of the group and had the coolest dream powers. Oh well, at least Will got to blow up that spiked wheelchair.

He's still the Wizard Master!
