Slashers We Love: “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” and “Last House on the Left”

The favorite slasher contest is over and thank you everyone for your great submissions. Congratulations to Ryan Howe and Brian C Tyler for winning autographed copies of Teddy. This week on the Slasher Studios Facebook Page we are asking you to submit your favorite slasher movie death scenes and why they love them so much. Should be interesting. After all, a slasher lives or dies on it’s death scenes…literally. What follows are two extra reviews that Brian and Ryan wrote for favorite slasher question.

Brian C Tyler-“Wes Craven’s New Nightmare”

Another favorite of mine is this 1994 love letter to both the fans and the people behind the original Nightmare on Elm Street. Wes Craven returns to the series along with Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, John Saxon and Bob Shaye to tell a chilling story that draws from both the original film and real life. The evil that Craven trapped in the Nightmare series is now set free after the previous film killed Freddy for good, and he’s after Heather and her son. There’s lots of great homages to the original film along with brand new, original and very unique fright sequences but the best things about this film… Craven puts Heather/Nancy back in the spotlight and makes Freddy scary again.

Ryan Howe-“The Last House on the Left”

Ok… a very brief breakdown of “Last House on the Left”. First off this movie proves that Wes Craven is still a genius at helping guys get laid. My friend Sam invited me and a couple of young Russian girls over to watch this movie. The girls had never heard of the movie.
20 minutes in… a rape and a murder… the girls are huddling together on the couch.
40 minutes in… gruesome rape being performed by the dad from “Raising Hope”…. the girls are practically crying.
1 hour in…. brutal, gruesome rape, twisted sordid kind of stuff… I have a beautiful Russian girl in my lap… physically in my lap.
1 hour, 20 mins in… I was wishing that I was straight or horror movies had the same effect on hot guys.
