Shocker is a flick I watched over and over in my early teens......and I still love it in my forties! Not sure whether that's a good thing or not
13:00 for the grade
Anyone else find John as hot as hell? His biceps are distracting.
I was either 18 or 19 when I first watched this movie (yeah I know I waited too long) but damn it was and is fucking incredible Mr Craven may you rest in peace he truly crafted a gorgeous and classic movie with a legend of horror.
Mitch pillegie was in shocker from the x files Peter berg was also in the movie fire in the sky both excellent movies
HEY CHRIS! YOU FORGOT THE POWER GLOVE.
I'm 36 I saw it when I was 7
Am I the only one here who actually likes candy corns?
A Nightmare on Elm Street is my favorite horror movie.
3:10 you missed the FOG
These are not so much reviews as they are conversations about a film. I prefer the proper solo reviews but that's just my subjective opinion as the high like to dislike ratio indicates.
You should review Izo by Takeshi Miike
Those die hard dubs are criminal hahaha I have a hard time believing they're real
You Freddy Kruger is the name of a school bully to Wes Craven
But THEN we had Nightmare 3 wich was pretty good...Overall, the only ones i liked from this franchise were the ones whith Heather. That being Nightmare 1, 3 and New Nightmare
Movies overrated as fuck
Where does Chris get all these wonderful shirts?
I know horror better than both those foolish clowns who don’t know what they’re talking about
just literally watched shocker tonight with my son. now its nightbreed
4:23 reminds me of Exorcist 3, nurse station scene.
I love this movie. I love this review. And I love your smile...keep up the good work 💜
"Suspiria" also had an awesome soundtrack by Goblin......Yikes!!!
So you're not even gonna mention the blood gushing out of the bed? Ok then.
Also Arachnophobia & Open Season.........
Do the Critters series!
New Nightmare is super underrated imo
I liked the soundtrack for Sinister believe it or not. Esp the car/garage scene
Just wanna say hello. And great video as always
Screw your hall pass .
The first time I saw this movie I was 7 or 8 years old and I lived on Elm St.
You can't getaway from the really bad moment the Mom is dragged through the door window and she is the dummiest dummy ever to be filmed. She turns into a stuffed toy for Freddie's sake!!
Im 22 and I watched this for the first time tonight and my god it's bad. Its like a slap stick comedy!
Wes Craven also directed an awesome movie called Deadly Friend (1986) which no one ever talks about. If you haven't seen it Chris you so should. Would make a good Hilariocity review.
Nightmare Part 2 isn't that bad; it's certainly not the worst of the series.
I´ve wated for this review for sooo long
John totally fucked up Wes Cravens NOES origin story.
Yipikayay Mr Falcon?!!! OMF!! HAHAHAHAHA!
Bad audio, wonder what they did differently? Normally it's fine
Chris, you and Johnny Flicks dialogue reviews are fantastic. You remain my favorite film critic, a worthy successor to Roger Ebert! When you two are together, Johnny Flicks... well he comes across a bit more intelligent than he does alone on his channel... LMAO‼️‼️ You are great foils. I miss the dialogue reviews of Sisley & Ebert and you two make me remember why! On a separate note, no Hilariosity (sp?) reviews in some time. I know film is and should be your second priority after The lovely Sam, who somehow conned into go out with... we kid because we love. I can’t wait to see your film!
hey! I love candy corn 😅
I think Nightmare on Elm Street is also based from an incident that happened with some Asian men for some reason. They fled to America and since then had terrible nightmares where they said something was chasing them and they knew they would never wake up if they were caught. And suddenly there were screams in the middle of the night and someone checked on them and found them dead. Sorry if I got the facts wrong, it's been a while since I've heard about it but it's fascinating and scary as fuck. Just think being killed in your own dream and then never wake up. Fuuuck that's scary xD
I looked it up. There was sixteen people. Scary.
One Asian man from Thailand. I've heard the story.
I was delighted that you brought up Shocker.
11:30 Speaking of X-Files - Skinner was the villain in Shocker ;)
Why you no review bohemian rhapsody??
Please please make a review of bohemian rhapsody!
The Chris/John collabs are always great!
I love this movie! But I agree about the ending. Wes Craven wanted the movie to end with Nancy leaving her house the next morning, having vanquished Freddy. It was the studio that insisted on a twist ending that ultimately left room for sequels. The problem, of course, is that this ending effectively means that Nancy fails.
I think Nightmare on Elm Street 2 should be a Hilariocity review ..... make it happen Stuckmann .... oh and I’m still waiting on A Vampire’s Kiss
Yippee ki-yay mr falcon..
Watched it when I was seven and grew up on the sequels. For me it’s my favourite horror series, as great as Halloween is the sequels largely sucked. I think Freddy has the best sequels in all horror series.
Yesterday is saw this movie for the first time and for the last time. What a kids movie. It felt like an episode of goosebumps. Bad acting., bad music. Freddy get owned by little girls. Freddy is being funny instead of scary. I didn't like anything about it. The people that like it always saw it in their childhood. The only thing i did like were the special effects.I give this movie a 4 out of 10.
For me, freddy krueger is the greatest horror character ever made. Best horror series to.
Nancy is a mouth 👄 breather in this one. Her mouth is always open it bugs the shit out of me.
Review Prince of Darkness from 1987 starimg Donald pleasence
Bohemian review please!!!
I love that home alone scene too
Love the review, when the focus is on the film. I don't watch Stuckman for the 13 year old version of himself reviewing these films. I watch them for an adult perspective. A grown human telling me his thoughts on a film after watching and studying countless others - NOT - what your CHILD-SELF would think. WHO GIVES A SHIT.I'm so fucking sick of hearing every youtubers 'CHILDHOOD MEMORIES'. My eyes get stuck in the back of my head everytime I hear the phrase "WHEN I WAS A KID....".
I just watched that movie yesterday and 50 times already.
I recently watched this movie for the first time and I wasn't scared at all. There were a few creepy sequences that were shot very well like the school hallway and the part where Freddy is coming through the wall and the wall turns into this liquid metal T-1000 type thing. But as soon as they showed Freddie, I started laughing. Seeing Freddy took away all the tension and it became hilarious to watch him awkwardly chase people, sometimes stumbling over stuff LoL
Plz review Suspiria 2018! Love your videos!
The moment I wasn't scared of Freddy is when he fell down the stairs and from there I looked forward to the dark comedy woven in the sequels.. When he pulled Nancy mom thru the door window and the credit music had me dying😂
You still have VHS too.
Such a clever and well made slasher. The casting was great Nancy and Glen actually looked like high school kids, the casting in the later movies had actors in their late 20s trying to play 'teenagers.' Freddy is smartly used sparingly. There's like a 30 minute stretch of the film towards the end where we don't see him which raises the tension for the final fight. Freddy is horrific in his design and portrayal. The writing is really strong too, Nancy has internal conflict to deal with, "am I crazy?"conflict with her parents who don't believe her as well as conflict with the antagonist. The practical effects are also great and still hold up. There's definitely sexual undertones too, we only see the girls nightmares with Freddy and Nancy & Tina are usually in their pjs in their bed when he appears and attacks them.
You would LOVE the Japanese indie "one cut of the dead." Watch it, and review it!!!
>though Chucky was realI'm convinced.
The true horror is your chemistry together.
Shocker is just dumb fun.
The booby trap part is kinda like predator when arnold is preparing to face the predator
The censored version of Die Hard 2 is one of the great comedies.
Josh Downham - the very least they could have gotten the voice to sound like Bruce Willis.
70s & 80s horror movies are the best. Hollywood don't make good horrors anymore ... can you review John carpenter's THE THING.
Perfect soundtracks for horror IMO:Halloween The ThingNightmare on Elm St.
Hitting 'like' before having seen the video ♥️
I watched Nightmare on Elm Street about two and a half weeks ago in my friends basement and it was fun seeing one of my friend's first seeing of the film
Chris grew up as Freddy
I wonder if Ted Bundy played an unwitting role in the whole "triumphant female lead" trope. Maybe it's a part of his legacy. He gained infamy for the brutal murders of a large number of women. He and his deeds were also dragged out of the dark and into the light in 1975, a year after Hooper directed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (which I'm still asking Chris to review, Chris). Only a few years later we start to see Michael and Jason and Freddy and Chucky, etc., all of whom find their nemeses to be female characters. Serial murder was big news in the sixties and seventies, definitely having a strong influence on the slasher movies of the eighties. Back then it was Manson and Bundy. Today, we have ISIS, etc. Come to think of it, this planet is just plain crazy as f**k. That's why we have all these movies!
Don't forget about Robert Englund's dreamy tongue action ;)
So what happens if we do in fact watch “A Nightmare on Elm Street” at 3am, in a basement boiler room, and don’t get scared?
Nightmare on elm street is my favorite horror movie franchise. I agree with everything you guys said. Wish you quickly touched on the remake. Personally I like that film visually everything else falls flat. Jackie gives a fair performance. You are right the second one sucks. For me though the halloween, nightmare and the original childs play theme are my three favorites. I'm glad you guys love it. If you didnt I'd have to walk in and say "This is god". Lol
Nightmare on elm street is A A+ just a great horror movie the Story effects every thing and Freddy Krueger screen time is 7 minutes
I like part 2 more than any of the other sequels. At least the tone is still serious before Freddy became a cartoon.
And I'm looking forward to what you think about Suspiria 2018.
The ending shot of the 1st Nightmare was Robert Shea's Idea i think he he Directed that scene also. Wes Craven said he hates that scene in multiple interviews.
Have you guys ever reviewed hellraiser? As a kid that movie HORRIFIED me but I don't remember if it was actually good or not lol
I just heard Chris say that he didn’t grow up with something for the first time and I’m literally shocked.
Also, I can watch nightmare on elm street in any situation and not get scared lol I’ve watched MUCH scarier. Wes craven is literally my idol though, he’s what made me want to become a filmmaker
The first elm street they said “Fred is coming for you” they changed it to “Freddy’s coming for you” because they started referring to him as Freddy after the first, and not just Fred Krueger
I grew up with Chris Stuckmann
Freddy did to basements what Jaws did to 70s tight speedos **shimmers**
Chris, you said that you think Craven did this to get away from the exploitative films but with Freddy being a child molester and killer exploitative? I guess you were referring the way this movie plays out as we don't see Freddy doing anything other than killing the kids of the people who murdered him?
I love candy corn it's my crack! LOL I eat it all year long, cannot help myself.
nightmare was not based on one case of a guy dying in his sleep from fright in L.A. it was from cases. at the time Wes came up with the concept their was a number of these cases happing in a immigrant community there and a large number of young men in this community were dying. it was a big case because it was just that community and so many healthy young were dying.
wtf is this immitation of "Half in the bag". FRAUDS
Why don’t you start working out with your friend and stop being a anime fanboy with cringe tattoos little bitch
This movie is pure 😬. It's so dated and not scary. You said, "watch it in a basement at 3 AM and try not to be afraid." I did. And I wasn't scared. Honest to god.
Why you covering those sweet tattoos??
I watched a nightmare on elm St for the first Time in 2016 The classic one . I watched the reamke in 2011 I hated the remake
If I remember correctly, wes craven originally envisioned Freddy as a pedophile but it was considered to dark even for an r rating. However there are still hints at it including Tina’s death and the bath tub scene. I’d suggest the documentary Never Sleep Again which dedicates nearly an hour to each NOES film.
Nightmare on elm Street does not hold up anymore
Chris keeps looking like his arms are pulled into his sleeves in this video.
