The Rise Of Cinematic Universes

I'm sure it is only a matter of time...

Recently, it was announced that a new Scooby Doo movie would launch a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe.  We also know that the Men in Black/21 Jump Street movie is supposed to actually happen.

Basically, that means that anything can be a cinematic universe these days.  While sitting around the Gabbing Geek Editorial Office, I came up with a few of my own.  See them after the cut.  Hollywood, feel free to use these for a small piece of the gross.  Not the net.  I won’t be screwed over that way.

PrettyWreck Cosplay may haunt your dreams with her version of Freddy Krueger. I don’t know if it’s the classic ripped sweater or the devilish metal claws, but she is definitely killing it. Hear what she has to say:

“Nightmare on Elm St has been my favorite horror movie since I was a kid and started watching them, it was always ironic because the elementary school I went to as a kid was on “Elm St” so it was always a little joke to my self that school was a nightmare haha.”

See more haunting photos after the break:

Gabbing Geek Remembers Wes Craven: The Scariest Watercooler Yet

Watercooler ChatIt is only appropriate that news of horror master Wes Craven’s death broke last night while the second episode of Fear the Walking Dead was being aired.  Those of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s, the sweet spot of Craven films, all have fond memories of seeing his movies.  I remember seeing so many in the theater but I also remember groups of high school friends getting together to rent Shocker and having a great time seeing such a cheesy horror film played in vivid VHS.

Thinking how far the genre has evolved since Craven came along so many decades ago  inspired us to get together and hold an impromptu, geek web-site wake for the beloved director of so many horror classics.  Jump after the break to read about our favorite Craven films and more!

RIP feels inappropriate--instead just know you will be remembered.

In Honor Of St. Patrick’s Day, Let’s Talk About Friday The 13th

He just loves his mom, is that so wrong?
He just loves his mom, is that so wrong?

Remember last week when we looked at Friday The 13th: The Series and how it had zero to do with all things Friday?  Well it seems a legitimate Friday series is in the works and some details broke over the weekend.

In Honor Of Friday The 13th, Let’s Talk About Nightmare On Elm Street

Johnny Depp is not the only one owes his career to Freddy.
Johnny Depp is not the only one owes his career to Freddy.

Actually, we’ll also look at Friday, but I had to lead with that Brad Pitt picture.  As for it’s caption, I assume most of us know that before he decided to purposely derail his own career (according to Watson), Johnny Depp was a big bloody stain in the first, and by far best, Nightmare on Elm Street movie.

But back on point (editor’s note: Jimmy, you have a point?  This just seems like filler so you don’t have to wash Watson’s car), do you remember that there was a Nightmare TV series called Freddy’s Nightmare’s that ran from 1988 to 1990?  Probably not, and for good reason, it was horrible.  The biggest issue with such a series was that it really had nothing to do with the movies, and usually only featured Robert Englund as Freddy Kruger in a Tales From The Crypt-esque hosting capacity.
