FORTRESS OF BAILEYTUDE SHOWCASE PRESENTS…THE ELM STREET FRANCHISE REVISTED

FOBSP: The Elm Street Franchise Revisted

Welcome back to Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents, the very irregular show here at the Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network where I talk about anything I feel like.  Most of the time it is out of the realm of the subjects I normally talk about and it’s always meant to be fun or informative or cathartic.

This time out I want to celebrate Halloween and what better way than to talk about my favorite horror movie franchise of all time with a couple of friends? Joining me to talk about all of the above are Melinda and Aaron from the amazing Dreamland: The Retroblasting Podcast.   Our subject?

Freddy Kruger.

The original A Nightmare on Elm Street came out in 1984 and introduced the world to Freddy Kruger.  Since then we have gotten six films in the original series, a meta-textual sequel, a team-up movie, a remake of the original as well as comic books, a television series, board games, trading cards and so much more.  Freddy was also a major presence on MTV during the late eighties, so it’s fair to say that the Nightmare franchise became a big part of the pop culture landscape.  Melinda, Aaron and I talk about all of it to one extent or another in addition to telling our Nightmare origin stories, our favorite movies in the franchise and a very deep conversation about A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, which is largely considered to be the worst of the original series.
