As most of our awesome readers know Brandon is the Horror guy between us. I wouldn’t say I’m not a fan, because I am, I just can be a little jumpy at night lol.
My introduction to horror films came to be thanks to my Mom. My mom loved all things scary from movies to books. So when we got our first VCR I would get cartoons and wrestling tapes, while Mom got slasher flicks.
While at school a buddy of mine mentioned Freddy Kruger and how cool the movie was. So I asked my Mom about it and that weekend I encountered Nightmare on Elm Street. I’ll be honest it was a little scary to me, but I found Freddy kinda funny. Maybe I was missing the point of the movie, but I liked it and over time and releases I watched the rest of the movies, With Dream Warriors being my favorite.
Over the years I have watched my share of the slashers and some I like some I don’t, but I’ll always remember popping that VHS into the player and Mom asking was I sure.
