HOW WOULD NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’S FREDDY KRUEGER FARE IN THE MIND OF THE JOKER?

Published

on

Freddy vs. The Joker, this I know is completely hypothetical and there are many variables that would make this an easy battle for Krueger. The fact is, Freddy is already dead and wields a power of demon-like sorts. He could basically just end his victims whenever he sees fit. Let us forget all of that for now and focus on the fact that even though Freddy could just kill his victims, he has a knack for wanting to toy with them in their dreams to induce fear. As we find out later in Freddy movies, fear is the source of his power.

Freddy Krueger, a serial killer of children, was captured by authorities but released due to a technicality during trial. Krueger was later hunted down by an angry mob led by his victims’ families. He was cornered in a boiler room where he used to take his victims and then the building was then set on fire with Krueger inside. He was burned to death. His body died, but his spirit returned.

Ahhh!
Ahhh!

Krueger returned from the dead with his burned and disfigured look, wielding a glove with razors on his right hand, to kill his victims. Freddy chooses to attack his victims through their dreams, where he has total power and dominion. Most of Krueger’s victims are teenagers who fall asleep and end up becoming part of Freddy’s funhouse of torture. As he toys with them, he produces as much fear as possible, before finally ending the game.

Game Over

Now we have Christopher Nolan’s Joker. Though we know little about his past in The Dark Knight. We know that he’s a crazy sociopath. (Even though he claims not to be.)

Heath Ledger once told The New York Times he viewed his character as a psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy. The Joker doesn’t even care about himself. We know little about the origins of the Joker throughout the Dark Knight. He often speaks the line Do you wanna know how I got these scars?” during the film, however the story he gives changes every time, offering very little insight into his past, so no one truly knows his beginnings.

The question we are asking here today is: How would the evil master of dreams fare, if he were to have found himself in the mind of the Joker?

I believe Kruger would be in for a world of surprise if he wandered into the mind of this individual, who admittedly states he is an agent of chaos.

Who would win in the game of wits? Both thrive on the same principles, yet Joker seems to have far too many other issues that would take things up a level for Krueger, giving him some serious troubles in seducing fear from the Joker.

In the end, I believe Krueger would have a real problem making The Joker fear him, even using Batman as a scare tactic. This could possibly frustrate, maybe even weaken Freddy which would give the Joker a chance at dragging him into the real world, where Krueger is a vulnerable as a human.

OUCH!

“I BELIEVE WHATEVER DOESN’T KILL YOU, SIMPLY MAKES YOU… STRANGER”

Strange

So tell me, who would win at the most warped dream battle of all-time, The Dark Knight‘s Joker, or Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger?

HORROR

Halloween Kills

Published

on

Michael Myers terrifies the townsfolk of Haddenfield once again. halloween Kills uses elements from the 1978 original and fuses them with tense, gruesome and gore, it’s BLOODY BRUTAL!!!

In 2018 David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman. 

However that Halloween night when Michael Myers returns isn’t over yet as the movie picks up right where we left off from the last one. Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (And Matichak)  have left the masked monster caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie however is rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries and believes that she’s finally killed her lifelong tormentor.

But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddenfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. 

The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.

Evil Dies Tonight. 

And speaking of evil, everything about this depiction of Michael is phenomenal. From his onscreen chilling presence, to his mask and the way he commits these brutal murders. Michael’s rampage through Haddenfield is pure carnage, he absolutely demolishes everyone and everything is his path. He’s let loose and becomes an even bigger dangerous threat, which is to be expected from masked killers. 

His kills are inventive and vicious and he’s gone one step ahead with the performance of killing someone as I felt that Michael has some theatricality aspects and truly admires his work by the way he displays their bodies. However I felt that some kills were forgettable due to the fact that we don’t get to care for some characters as by the time they’re in Michael’s line of sight, you know they’re a gonna.

For fans of horror and violence in movies, there are many spine-chilling moments such as Skull crushing, eye-gouging, gunshots and plenty of bodily horror. 

And if you’re a fan of the original 1978 Halloween film, you’ll be pleased to see many of the actors who were once children, teenagers in the original reprise the same roles in Halloween Kills as adults. It feels so believable and genuine to see the likes of Kyle Richards (Lindsey Wallace ), Nancy Stephens (Marion Chambers) and Charles Cyphers (Sheriff Leigh Brackett) . The film truly pays homage to the original that started it all. many other characters return from the 2018 film and another classic character returning is Tommy Doyle, though recast and now played by Anthony Michael Hall.

With all these characters the film switches the narrative by focusing in on how the town itself responds and reacts to Michael as the Haddonfield townspeople are fed up and exhausted after 40 years of trauma which was brought on by Michael Myers. We follow groups of unlikely heroes throughout the town armed and ready to take out an unstoppable force of nature by any means necessary. Tommy rallies the whole community to band together. They don’t listen to the Police so this film shows what happens when a town is dissatisfied with a failed system and a useless authority. All hell breaks loose and a mob is formed, this becomes a story that isn’t about Laurie vs Michael, instead about Michael vs Haddonfield itself.

The movie’s central location takes place within a hospital, we see bodies being swarmed in as a result of Michael. Fear starts growing within the town which unfortunately morphs into panic and eventually utter complete chaos when misinformation and rumours star to spread. I felt that the residents of Haddenfield’s true enemy was their own idiotic decisions, society and rage has made them the monsters. 

Cinematography is certainly elevated this time with unique camera angels showcasing the murders. John Carpenter’s score is beautiful and certainly adds suspense to certain scenes. I also love the film’s nods and nostalgia throughout flashbacks to 1978. 

Overall Halloween Kills is a solid setup and middle chapter of this trilogy. It’s a fun popcorn flick with the right amount of slasher, horror and humour. It also sets into motion what will eventually become Halloween Ends.
