Supernatural Sat Night is live

Tonight I wrap up reviewing Wes Craven’s Scream franchise with Scream 4.  Wes Craven takes a morbid tongue in cheek look at the remake craze in the horror genre.  Craven has spawned many iconic pop culture lines and its my opinion that Scream 4 drops “What’s your favorite scary movie,” in favor of Sydney’s line in the climax, “You forgot the first rule of a remake don’t f$^k with the original!”

Scream 4 is right up with Scream 1, the original Nightmare, the original Halloween, and The Fog as some of my all time favorite horror movies.  Scream 4 is definitely one of the best movies Craven has to offer.

As Scream 4 wraps up the Scream series Sunday Spotlight issues in yet another masterpiece of Wes Craven by taking on Freddy Krueger.

Superhatural Saturday Night for Nov 9th

In the pursuit of a series on remakes I now fully understand Marcey of supermarcey.com ‘s “Why” column.  This is a tragic remake in a series based on the success of a cult classic.  The original Children of the Corn was an amazing and terrifying dark classic with six sequels and at least one remake that attempts to tear down the success of its predecessor.

New Series Horror Remakes

Debuting tonight, OCT 5 2013: Horror Movie remakes.  If I have already reviewed the original or remake I will review the other.  If in the case of Amityville and I did a comparison review then I will review a sequel that makes sense in the series or does not make sense.  http://www.examiner.com/article/new-series-remakes
