“Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!”
Hey kiddies! Happy Friday!
I’m continuing with the horror theme and going with another classic. Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street”
This is one of the first horror movies that I can remember from my childhood and like every other kid from the 80’s, the iconic Freddie Krueger made me want to prop my eyelids open with toothpicks. Anything to stay awake. I wasn’t a latchkey kid so I’m not even sure how I was able to watch this movie in the first place, but where there’s a will there’s a way.
Freddie Krueger is a terrifying monster. Unlike Jason for example, his brand of psychological terror was far more traumatizing than the mindless killing machine. Yes his macabre murders were disgusting and legendary, but they always played on a victim’s worst fears. It was almost impossible to outwit him!
To this day, when I watch the original Nightmare on Elm Street movies I laugh at how cheesy they are but I never laugh at Freddie. He has held up and is just as terrifying as ever. As such he holds a special place of honor on my Halloween edition of this feature.
I know it’s not Halloween yet, (obviously) but this is a Friday feature so I’m sure you wont mind my excitement!
We’ve been getting ready for the big night all week. Putting up scary/ but not too scary decorations, decorating and carving pumpkins, and of course loading up on candy.
You may have noticed that I’ve only been able to post a few times this week, but what I have posted is spooky and I hope my recommendations have been helpful.
The reason I haven’t posted as much as I’d like, is because R&R Book Tours has been flooded with business! I couldn’t be more stoked about it either. This is FANTASTIC! I just now have to adjust my thinking and scheduling to cope with the volume of work.
One blog tour in particular, is TRIPLE BOOKED and I haven’t even sent my official invite out, nor have I advertised it! That would be the tour for Follow the Snowflakes: A Christmas Novella by Angelina Kerner. I’m not kidding guys, there is a cover reveal coming up and I just added a note about the tour and BAM a million participants lol.
R&R Book Tours is booking into the new year and I am so happy! It means the world to me to be able to help indie authors launch or promote their books. 🙂 Sooooo I will need more tour hosts for sure…hint, hint 😉
Anyway, I haven’t had much time for reading but I’ve been watching lots of scary flicks in the evening after everyone has retired. That and catching up on Riverdale and this new show called SEAL Team. It’s pretty good.
Before I get to the posters, I wanted to thank the very popular Angelina Kerner for her lovely “Thank You” post. It was an amazing post about my new little company and it means the world to me. You guys can read it here if you want. Angelina is hosting a trivia event with prizes for her upcoming book so you should go check that out.
This Week: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
A lot of great fan art here… and I love “A” cause that’s the original theater poster, but I think I’m going to go with “L”
It’s creative and has so many key elements like the blanket being red and green striped. Just perfect!
The Winner: “L”
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
