Camp Blood: Fantastic Franchises
The horror genre had a thing for franchises. They really love to see that unstopable killer who just keeps coming back and coming back. So this week for your viewing suggestions we are going to have a look at three franchises that just will not stay dead. Where my ghouls at?
As a child, Kevin was kidnapped by Freddy Krueger before Freddy was killed by a mob of angry parents. Although he was rescued by the detective that arrested Krueger, he was left scarred emotionally and psychologically. 13 years have passed, and Kevin's family has moved back to Elm Street, stirring up Kevin's darkest memories. A weakened, desperate Freddy, trapped in the dream world by his mother, a nun named Sister Mary Helena, following the events of Nightmare 5 has caught Kevin's scent, the one that got away.
Clive Barker's feature directing debut graphically depicts the tale of a man and wife who move into an old house and discover a hideous creature - the man's half-brother, who is also the woman's former lover - hiding upstairs. Having lost his earthly body to a trio of S&M demons, the Cenobites, he is brought back into existence by a drop of blood on the floor. He soon forces his former mistress to bring him his necessary human sacrifices to complete his body... but the Cenobites won't be happy about this.
Picking up 20 years later this film has Michael Myers returning once again to try to find his sister so that he can murder her. Features a lot of up-and-coming young actors of the time and also includes a return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. The only thing this franchise reboot missed out on was having a scene that involved a lot of water.
