Ah yes. October, which is one of my favorite months of the year, has finally arrived, as well as another October where everyone’s favorite comic book nerd reads some more Nightmare on Elm Street comics. I’ve already marathoned the entire ANoES series on the October before the 2010 remake was released. So, no spoilers for me, thank you very much. 8:07- I’m calling it. Supreme Leader Snoke is really Freddy Krueger! …Nah, just kidding. I still love the PowerGlove scene from Freddy’s Dead. 11:50- “THIS. IS. SPARTA!” 14:34- I know, right? With the way he kept dressing in the same… Read more »

Well I guess that vagina thing might be a form of being reborn in hell. I do love H.R. Giger designs

Another possibility for a vagina design in Alien by Giger is the entrance of the derelict ship, not as gooey, but more fitting for a portal than a facehugger like seen herecomment image

Along with that one cop’s ‘pretty little girls’.

A note on the chronology: the original movie was in 1984, and Nancy was a teenager. Her mother describes ‘us parents’ killing Freddy – implying she was a parent when she did so. So, setting it in the 60s does make sense, since Nancy would’ve been born then. Shouldn’t there be kids with siblings who died years ago? This has never been addressed. The soul-tree, or the sultry? Hah! I kill me! Or is that Freddy killing me? “You’re not acknowledging that two different families have lived in that house since Freddy’s death?” Andy Mangels had a theory that Freddy’s… Read more »
