Over the Halloween 2012 week, I decided to watch this film. It was my first time watching it.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is a horror movie from 1987. Starring Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger. The movie also has Patricia Arquette, Laurence Fishburne, John Saxon. Give a new group of teens “super” abilities in their dreams and face off against Freddy. I enjoyed the film but which one should I watch next?
The Fog (2005)
Director: Rupert Wainwright
A horror film remake that stars Tom Welling, Maggie Grace and Selma Blair trying to survive a death-dealing fog that covers a small town. I have not seen the original 1980 film.
I found myself more amused than terrified while watching this. More modern technology doesn’t always mean a more enjoyable horror film.
Parasite Eve (1997)
Director: Masayuki Ochiai
The film is based off of a book by Hideaki Sena. It was originally published in Japan 2 years before this film.
The film revolves around a A scientist who is studying Mitochondria and all seems well. His wife ends up in a car accident and then that’s where the film starts getting strange. The scientist starts acting obsessive over his work which eventually leads to the formation of a being named Eve. She can set people on fire and eventually float to move around instead of walking. If that wasn’t strange enough, Eve takes the form of the scientist’s wife and they “make love” in order to create an offspring. The last part of the film is all about trying to contain Eve.
I haven’t read the book yet but it has been translated into english by Vertical. I may pick it up at some point to see if the book ends differently from the film.
