Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, the highest grossing film in the series. Blade wielding child killer Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) bumps off the heroes from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors, but not before Kristen (Tuesday Knight) transfers her powers to Alice (Lisa Wilcox). Alice tries to warn her friends about Freddy, but he's growing stronger by the minute. Can she wield the title of The Dream Master?

Directed by Renny Harlin (Exorcist: The Beginning), this flick amps up the humor and tones down the horror. Its dream sequences and shot compositions are some of the best in the series even though the main story is rote at best. The middle entry in the "Dream Warrior Trilogy", this is the motion picture most people are thinking of when you ask them about A Nightmare on Elm Street.   

Mat caught the acclaimed horror social thriller Get Out on HBO. Living up to the hype, Get Out is a slow burn of a satire, allowing viewers to get to know the characters before crazy shit starts to go down. Writer-director Jordan Peele (Little Fockers) pays more than a little homage to the original The Stepford Wives movie, but he does it so well it's no wonder this became a smash hit. 

Thrasher turned on a well-known turkey by watching both versions of the regrettable Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny. An odd mixture of a fairy tale adaptation and a Christmas film, this one's only for the quite curious.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss "Sister's Keeper", the sequel to the pilot episode to the short-lived horror anthology TV series Freddy's Nightmares - A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series. Last time around, the cop who killed Freddy Krueger ended up dying in a nightmare haunted by Freddy himself. A decade later, his twin daughters are now high school students; one is mousy (Gry Park), the other popular (Hili Park). Can they survive the same horrorific dreams that plagued their late father?

Mat tried to watch with the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe films with Doctor Strange, but found it too boring to finish. Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) was too much of a dick, and the main story took forever to get started. Despite the heady mix of martial arts and surrealism, Mat bailed out of watching the whole movie, but might finish it at a later date.

Thrasher introduced a friend to Dr. Who and the Daleks, the first of two theatrical Doctor Who flicks from the 1960s. Doctor Who (Peter Cushing) battles the ruthless Daleks, the classic "Exterminate!" spouting robot baddies from the long-running TV series. Thrasher finds this movie to be a bit of good fun, although Peter Cushing does not hold a candle some of the better Doctor Whos from the TV series.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss "No More Mr. Nice Guy", the pilot episode to the short-lived anthology TV series Freddy's Nightmares - A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series. Focusing on the origin of Freddy Krueger, this tale starts when Krueger gets off all charges of child murdering on a technicality and features the famous scene of the parents murdering Freddy Krueger in the boiler room. Featuring plenty of moody lighting, this episode is directed by Tobe Hooper of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame. Scares are to be had despite limits on blood due to this being a syndicated TV show at the time.

Mat was bored with the new TV special Michael Jackson's Halloween. Looking like a CG TV show out of the late 1990s, Michael Jackson's Halloween has Michael Jackson's chimp Bubbles (Brad Garrett) delivering two kids to an impromptu haunted house. After entering, they are whisked into an alternate dimension where they must strike down the evil witch Conformity (Lucy Liu). While there are a number of musical numbers from Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5, they are cut down to a minute apiece with very abbreviated dance sequences. This is not as fun as it sounds.

Thrasher caught up with a rare Ed Wood feature The Revenge of Dr. X. He found it worth the hunt.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and special guest Russell Dyball (Production Associate for Shout! Factory) talk about A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. Wes Craven's original screenplay was rejected, but the final film features a script featuring work by wunderkind Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist). A gang of teens are attempting suicide thanks to nightmares from Freddy Krueger, but new intern Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) is able to connect with them. Can they finish off the child killer once and for all? This flick is a fine balance between the dark horror of the original and the pun-filled camp of the later sequels.  

Mat enjoyed some of Movie Bob's YouTube videos on the Transformers and DC Cinematic Universe films. Thrasher had fun with Thor: Ragnarok. Both of them chat at length about what may lay in store after Marvel is finished with Phase Three of their Marvel Cinematic Universe (i.e. post The Avengers 3).

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, the first of many sequels about the teen dream murdering child killer Freddy Krueger. A new family has moved into the former Thompson household from the original. This time around, Freddy toys with shrill teen Jesse (Mark Patton). Often broad and rarely creepy, this quirky entry gets better with repeated viewings. Among other things, we see a pet bird burst into flames and the tamest leather bar this side of Cruising

Mat caught up with The Invisible Man, a classic Univeral horror film that's about a murdering invisible asshole. Thrasher enjoyed "The Creeping Terror", a film featured on Season 6 of the original run of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk the original A Nightmare on Elm Street from 1984. A group of high school students start getting picked off one by one by a ghoulish man in their nightmares named Fred Krueger (Robert Englund). As they put together pieces of the puzzle, they discover Krueger's twisted relationship to their parents and try to defeat him. Featuring a darker tone and less puns than other films in the series, A Nightmare on Elm Street can be a bit of an odd duck if you only know the character from one of the many sequels.

Thrasher thought the characters in the recent live-action Beauty and the Beast film from Disney were overdone. Mat enjoys The Little Hours, an odd medieval comedy starring Aubrey Plaza, Dave Franco, and Kate Micucci.

34 - Spider-Man 3 (2007)

00:0000:00

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about Spider-Man 3 from 2007, the final film in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) has turned into a fame loving asshole. His smugness only increases in power when he's taken over by an alien symbiote which amplifies his worst qualities. Zaniness ensues, and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), Venom (Topher Grace), and New Goblin (James Franco) are hot on Spidey's trail. A big secret is revealed, and Peter learns about the power of forgiveness.

Thrasher was let down by My Scientlogy Movie, a documentary that's more about the documentarian than the titular subject. Mat enjoys the Season 6 finale of Will & Grace which features guest star appearances by British actors John Cleese and Tim Curry playing brothers (!!!).

33 - Spider-Man 2 (2004)

00:0000:00

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about Spider-Man 2 from 2004, the second film in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is failing his college science class, but has to do one last paper to pass the grade. As part of the paper, he interviews Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina). A nuclear fusion demo for the press goes awry and his mechanical tentacle device turn Otto into the dangerous Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man 2 is a better film than the original with Alfred Molina in particular turning in a performance that's equal parts friendly and frightening. Raimi injects some tricks from his horror ouevre for the fight scenes.

Mat finds American Reunion to be a pleasant end to the American Pie series with some fun character moments. Thrasher had fun at the ScareFest Horror Convention in Lexington, Kentucky. Among the goodies he grabbed were Shout Factory's 12-movie set of Cinematic Titanic: The Complete Collection and Dreams With Sharp Teeth, the documentary on legendary sci-fi author Harlan Ellison.

32 - Spider-Man (2002)

00:0000:00

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about Spider-Man from 2002, the first film in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is a nerd who gets bit by a DNA-enhanced super spider. Parker struggles with his super powers while trying to flirt with Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). After discovering that his best friend's father (Willem Dafoe) is responsible for causing crime as the Green Goblin, Spider-Man has to make some tough choices to save New York City. Raimi goes for candy-colored angst, recalling the original Steve Ditko run of the Spider-Man books. In a ballsy move, it takes almost an hour before Spider-Man puts on his iconic suit. This is a sweet, gentle super-hero movie that feels a bit rushed towards the end. 

Thrasher enjoys The Tick on Amazon Prime, a new take on the latest of several adaptations of Ben Edlund's 1980s indie comic book character of the same name. Mat finally watches The Craft, a 1990s piece of pagan puffery that has a great third act and a gonzo performance by Fairuza Balk.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talks about The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. This is the one that won a zillion Oscars. Covering a third of The Two Towers and all of Return of the King, this movie has a lot of heavy lifting to do. We get another seige with the Battle of Minis Tirith to go along with the boatload of endings. There's something for everyone here, whether's it's a giant spider fight, drunken dwarf jokes, or struggles nearby lava. 

Thrasher loves a recent episode of Justice League Action where Jon Lovitz was a feature guest as annoying reporter Sid Sharp. Mat delves into Doomed! The Untold Story of the Fantastic Four, a recent documentary on the 1990s Fantastic Four movie executive produced by Roger Corman that only exists on the bootleg circuit.
