My Soul to Take

Directed by: Wes Craven

Release Date: 2010

What a complete waste of time. I'm having less and less patience with the man who created my favorite horror villain, Freddy Krueger. Having read awful reviews of this last year when it premiered in the theaters, I waited a year until my local library was carrying the DVD. And I'm so glad I waited.

A few things to mention before I dig in - the DVD itself doesn't have a featurette, includes alternate openings and endings without commentary but includes audio commentary for the film itself. Who's going to watch with audio commentary if you haven't seen it first? I'm never watching this picture again. Such a disappointment. On to the review!

Halloween

Directed by: John Carpenter

Release Date: 1978

Still as potent and scary now as it was in the seventies, Carpenter's addition to the horror genre was top notch and spectacular. Never being a fan of this picture because I was more of a Freddy girl, after more than three viewings, Wes Craven's Nightmare is fighting with this horror picture in my heart.
