You defiantly accomplished that part and oddly NOES is now the 2nd horror movie series I'll never watch. The first is Child's Play. Long story on why. Let's just say I never watch anything (except the Simpsons Treehouse ep) dealing with a living, killer doll of any kind (Goosbumps Night of the Living Dummy for example) cause of it and if I ever come across a doll version of that killer doll I'll give it a good Bart like kick.
That's one thing that's always bothered me about horror movies: there are far too many that turn innocent things like dolls and clowns into monsters. And yet, oddly, if there's a little kid involved, the kid rarely ever gets killed by the monster. If they're going to ruin our fond memories of childhood with killer dolls, why don't they just take it a step further and kill some innocent kids while they're at it?
Freddy Krueger was supposed to be a child killer, but when he returns from the dead he's only ever shown killing teens. Teens that look like adults already. It's like the ONE thing they won't show in ANY horror movie is the on-screen death of a child.
I'm not actually FOR that. I'm just trying to make a point.
Same here and I think that's why they never show it. Many, many people would get offended by it and it be lawsuit city especially with the parents of the kid actors that were involved. Though I also think not doing that has been a rule for horror films, like how the couple that makes love is always the first ones to get killed. The only times I knew of where a kid was killed was the movies made back when the movie studios had that stupid code that told them what they could and couldn't have in a movie and that was only if the kid was evil cause one code was that evil never wins. One example was this movie based off a book. In the book the evil killer girl survived while her mom (who tried to kill her to stop her) died but in the movie the mom lived and the girl died by getting struck by lighting while she was trying to get her favorite item out of the lake. I too also hate how they do it that with that stuff. I also hate how mindless like they are. It's mainly some wacko killer (who sometimes can't talk) that's going around killing people with some big sharp weapon and there's no thought in that. He just runs around hacking people to death. Sideshow Bob actually thinks on how to kill Bart. He only chases after him when Bart somehow gets away from him and when he has Bart, he wants to make Bart suffer. He never wants it to be a quick death like in horror films. He wants it as painful as possible which makes it more scary to watch. That's why I like Asian horror movies. They think out of the box on what kills people. Ringu has a cursed video tape, Ju-On (my fav series) has a house with a curse where anyone that steps into it will at some point and One Missed Call (another of my favs) has it being a voicemail or text message after the cell rings with a very creepy sounding ring-tone and the best with that stuff is that the people die in all different kinds of way. In One Missed Call one guy dies after getting pushed down by the ghost into an elevator shaft, a girl gets killed by the ghost by having her body twisted in ways thought impossible and in one of the Ju-On movies a girl gets killed by being dragged into the attic via a crawl space after she pokes through said crawl space to investigate a weird sound.
Wait...I didn't comment on this? Damn, cause I love this! I loved the parody the show did in Season 7, but then again, this fits better, if only for Bart (and possibly Lisa). I wonder, if it was more of an adult show, would they have thought about using the iconic line from the third movie... Anyway, the idea is good, the picture is great, and it combines two of my obsessions. PS: I actually dreamed about Freddy last week! Isn't that weird? And by the way, no, he wasn't trying to kill me in the dream.
The line is said when Freddy kills a girl who aspired to be on TV. Just before smashing her head into the TV, he says "Welcome to prime time, bitch!" That is also written right at the beginning of the sixth movie as a quote. PS: I'm probably just obsessed in a completely non-crazy way.
It's all a matter of opinion. What terrifies one person may have absolutely no effect on another. I've heard an equal number of folks say that "Paranormal Activity" was either the scariest movie ever or not scary at all.
Personally, I hate horror movies that are all about gore. Nothing scary there. Just disgusting. I think the horror movies they made in the 70's and 80's are the best, scary without being gory. Like "Amityville Horror," "Poltergeist," "Stephen King's IT" and the original "Nightmare on Elm Street."
THAT'S the one you want to see. Not the new one, which was a very pointless remake that did not make any improvements on the original. They even left out one of the best death scenes.
Didn't they do a Simpsons episode that was a parody of NOES? I believe that it was the janitor that portrayed the Freddie-like character that chased after the children. Ahh, the Treehouse of Terror episodes were the best.
