Let’s Talk: Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Freddys Revenge

Image result for Nightmare on Elm street 2

I have been going through all the old horror movies and checking them out again, because well…I have not seen most of them since I was a kid.  So while I remember loving them and almost being terrified of them, I didn’t exactly remember them.

So here I am watching all these horror movies and I have seen quite a few at this point. Pumpkinhead, Hellraiser 1, 2, and 3, The Shinning…and A nightmare on Elm Street.

I have enjoyed watching these great classics and it’s almost like watching them for the first time.

But!!

And this is a huge but!

Freddy’s revenge was…..

AWFUL!

Does anyone remember this movie? I think it should be wiped from our minds and thrown in the delete folder and the delete folder deleted. There were so many things wrong with this movie. Honestly, was it even a Freddy movie? It wouldn’t have been good if it had been a stand-alone movie and not part of a franchise.

Let’s look at this. Freddy could attack people in their dreams. But he is weak from the first movie where he basically had his a$$ handed to him. So…he attacks one guy who moves into Nancy’s old house. It could totally make sense that Freddy can only attack the people in the house where he was last defeated. I can go along with that.

Then it goes all wonky. Suddenly Freddy can possess Jesse and kill people in the real world instead of attacking them in his dreams. I have read the things that the idea is that Freddy is weak and this is how he gets stronger. But it doesn’t make sense. He is a dream demon basically. How can he be so weak he can’t attack people in their dreams, but he can possess someone, look like himself to them, and kill?

Also, the whole point of the first movie is that Freddy was attacking the kids of the adults who had a part in killing him. Jesse’s parents had nothing to do with it!

This movie was an embarrassment to the whole franchise. It completely throws out the whole concept of Freddy. The scary guy who attacks you in your dreams. It was ridiculous but I could still appreciate some of the special effects. People were really creative with special effects in the 80’s and I kind of miss it.

I need to get back to watching horror movies, but I have been a little distracted with things lately. There are some great shows going on at the moment too and I hope to touch on those soon this month.

So tell me, what is your favorite horror film? Old or new I want to know so I can watch them!

What did you think of Freddy’s Revenge?

Well…Hello

Hello Friends,

It has been a long time since I have been here. I will open WordPress and start to type something and then decided that I just wasn’t ready to come back. I tried to come back a few times and I wasn’t healed enough. It has now been a year and a month since my dad passed away. Things are getting back to normal for real this time. I am working a new job. We have caught up on our bills and we won’t lose the house. My dad is still a big hole missing in my life, but I am getting better. I am living again.

I got up one morning and I realized that I needed to get back to my life. I needed to get back to the dreams I once had and the things I used to do. It was time to get back to reading and writing. I haven’t completely stopped doing all the things, but I slowed down to the point where I would have been better to just not do the things. But I want to get back to it.

I thought there was no better time to come back then my favorite month of the year. Spooky month! I seriously enjoy the month of October. All my favorite things are around and it makes me happy. So, I start back my blogging journey this month!

Spooky month.png

Here are some things I have planned.

1. Watch at least 1 horror movie a day.
2. Read all the Goosebumps and fear street books I have. I have 16 of them.
3. Write 1 spooky short story a week.
4. Write everyday!

I am going to get back on this road, this journey to being something more than just a girl who lives in the south and works in retail. My ultimate goal in life is to make my way to book con. Become a published author. And inspire others to follow their own dreams. I have had enough time to sit in the dark and feel sorry for me. My dad wouldn’t be happy with me if I didn’t keep going after my dreams.

What are your plans for this month??

The Must Watch Halloween Movies

halloween

Hello Nerds!

I realize today is Wednesday and I should be posting a short story. But…I have been lazy and my story isn’t ready yet. So, I thought I would do a fun little list because it is the month of Halloween (seriously they should change it from October to Halloween) and it’s my favorite time of the year!

I thought I would share with you a list of must watch movies for the month of Halloween!

Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. Duh! How could you not watch this movie?? It’s amazing and spooky, but not too spooky for younger kids. Let’s have a family movie night and watch this!

Hocus Pocus. Another no brainer. Another classic that you can not go the entire month of Halloween without seeing at least once. Of course, if you are like me you will see it at least 5 times…

I love this movie so much! It warms my heart and Devon Sawa (Casper) was probably my first movie star crush. I still love the moment at the end when Casper gets to dance with Kat. Another favorite part of mine is when Casper asks Kat “Can I keep you?” Ugh! my heart! Seriously going to get that tattooed on me at some point in my life.

Yeah, I went there. I love all of the Halloweentown movies. They are so adorable and full of all the things I love about Halloween.

Yes…I love Tim Burton and all of his movie feed my love for the strange and dark. Corpse Bride is one of my favorites…actually all of them are my favorites. In all honesty, I will use any excuse to watch this movie.

I watched this one just yesterday and what a cute little movie. I loved it. And I think it is the perfect Halloween movie.

Come on….like you didn’t know this one was going to be here. It’s the greatest family ever!

Okay, okay. This is not a Halloween must. It is a LIFE MUST! What better time to watch a strange movie about a goblin king stealing babies than Halloween.

Now, I know you are wondering why I don’t have the classics on this list. Like Halloween, Trick ‘r Treat, Ginger Snaps, I Know What you Did Last Summer, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Donnie Darko. Maybe my list is a little kid friendly…or maybe I am just a child at heart. Maybe, all those other movies just bore the crap out of me! Except Ginger Snaps, that is actually a pretty good (although cheesy) movie. And there are other movies that I could have named. But these are the movies that I watch all month long…honestly it’s an all year long thing, but I usually watch them all more than once in October.

Tell me, what are your must watch movies for Halloween?

Ending the Experiment

Okay, it’s over.  I tried and I realized, writing is in my blood!!

I tried to not write anything for over a week now and, well, I am about to go crazy.  I have not written blogs, stories, poems, or even notes.  The only thing I did write were status updates on Facebook, which can some times be a short story.  I like to tell people things.

I have been down, angry, antsy, and everything else that happens to a junky when you take away their drugs.  Oh yeah, I’m saying it, writing is my drug. It’s the one thing that calms my stress and helps me find a happier me.  Well, that and reading.

I just wanted to see what would happen if I took all writing out of my life for a week.  I am always questioning if I am really a writer.  I wonder sometimes if I do it because I love it and need it, or if I just do it to make people think I am creative.  I now have my answer.  I love it and need it in my life.

Now, should I be an author?  That question still hangs in the balance of things.  If anything, I will at least tell my kids awesome bedtime stories one day. But I do want to be an author.  I want to share my crazy mind with the world.  I will make it one day, right along with my dream to open my own bakery.  I have a pretty awesome life ahead of me.

And now for a confession.  I didn’t give up all writing.  I evidently can’t give it up completely.  I wrote in my journal one night.  I was depressed and I needed that outlet, I had to write the things down that were stuck in my head.  I don’t always feel comfortable telling people about the things going on in my head.  I scare myself sometimes with the thoughts that cross my mind.

I also don’t like to tell people when I have fallen into that dark hole that makes me question my own life.  I don’t have suicidal thoughts anymore, but I do have moments where I want to give up and just hide under a rock, or I wonder what life would be like without me.  I always end up really upset for the people around me.  I am pretty awesome and their life would be boring without me.

I also wrote a short story with my mom and brother.  My brother drew a picture and I wrote the story.  My mom latter added to it.  It was down on the white board that we keep on the fridge.  Take a look.

Family Story

The character my brother drew didn’t have ears.  He went in after I wrote the story and added ears.  Then my mom went in about new technology.  I love it.  My family inspires me.

Also, Happy Halloween month!! I seriously love Halloween and I can’t wait to show you all the wonderful things I plan on doing.  Hopefully a new job is coming my way, a job with more money.  Meaning I can buy more stuff to make cakes.

Last year I was going to carve pumpkins but I never got around to it.  This year I am going to do that and hopefully try making pumpkin pie.  I have seen so many awesome cake stuff for Halloween.  I just love this time of year!!  I have already made one cake for Halloween.  I will share it with you sometime soon.

Day Gone Sour

October, my favorite month.  The smell of fall, the crunching of bright leaves, and awesome horror movies all over TV all month long.  It should have started with a bang.  I should have woke up excited and ready to get this month going.

As soon as I woke up this morning I wanted to call out of work.  I wanted to turn my light back out and drift back into a dream world where everyday is as awesome as Halloween.  Instead, I drug myself out of bed, hopped in the shower and got ready for work.  I decided I would eat breakfast at work, so I rushed out of the house and to my car.  I watched as all the cats came running out from under my car and onto the back porch.

I have so many black cats I could start and adoption agency for witches.  I love all my black cats though.  Especially Ash, he has brilliant green eyes and a bushy tail.  We have a ton of kittens, which are the ones that sleep under my car.

Something kept telling me to look under my car, but I didn’t think I really needed too.  The youngest kittens, the ones that didn’t know any better were already on the back porch.  I started the car and waited. I tapped the breaks a few times to shake the car, the last warning to any cats left under my car.

Satisfied that no cats or kittens were left, I backed the car up.

That’s when it happened, the slight “pop” of my tire rolling over what I brushed off as a rock.  Rocks sound like that sometimes, but something in me knew it wasn’t a rock.  I kept backing up, and my headlights hit it.  The last remaining kitten, that for some reason didn’t get the warnings.  The poor kitten that didn’t even try to run, and had it’s poor head crushed by my car tire.

I watched it flail around, like it was trying to get up, but I am sure it was just the last of it’s nerves dying.  Please, God, let it have been the last of its nerves dying.  I keep trying to tell myself that it died instantly and felt no pain, but I just can’t bring myself to believe it.

I gave it all the usual warnings!  All the other cats got it.  It usually ran with the other kittens, not that you can tell them apart since they are mostly black.  Yet, there it was, crushed.  One of my black kittens is now gone, because I didn’t listen to my intuition and check under the car before I backed out.

I feel like such a horrible person.  I love all my cats, even the ones that hiss and run from me.  I am a cat lover.  I take care of them.  Why did it have to be my tire that crushed it?  I can’t help but to feel sick, and I can’t get the image out of my head.

The worst part!  The mother cat of this kitten went rushing to the flailing kitten.  She actually ran to the dying baby…I just hope cats don’t hold grudges…I killed her baby!

So far, October is not off to a good start.  Fingers crossed that it gets better.  Maybe I can stop feeling so sick about the kitten, I mean, I have plenty more and I was getting to where buying food was super expensive.  😦

Cat lovers of the world, please forgive me.

It’s Finally Here!

I am horrible at blogging.  I get it going for a while, then come back randomly for updates.  I have all these great ideas that I want to blog about, but by time I get around to doing it I just don’t want to write them anymore.

I just read two books (actually three, but one was a re-read) and I would love to do reviews on them because they were both really good books.  Hopefully I can get around to that.  I also went to the movies this weekend and saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and I want to do a review on that too (spoiler: It was awesome!).  Since it is a new season (yes!!) all these wonderful shows are starting back up, or premiering.  I honestly want to set aside a day to review All those shows, my expectations on them, my thoughts on what will happen, and my overall opinion on this/that weeks episodes.  Simply because I love talking about the shows that I watch.  I am going to keep a notebook by my side so I can take notes for each show.

But none of that is really important.  What is important is that today is the last day of September.  You know what that means?  My favorite month of the year!! I seriously love October!  I love everything about it.  I love the smells, the cool weather, Halloween, the awesome shows and movies.  There is nothing bad about October!

This year I want to finally carve a pumpkin because I have never done that before.  I want to make pumpkin pie.  I want to finally get around to making my aprons.  I want to make a costume, or at least parts of it.  I want to do all kinds of stuff in the spirit of Halloween.  Seriously, they should change October to Halloween, because the whole month of October is all about Halloween.

Any other ideas of awesome crafts or baking things I can do for Halloween?  I want to do it all!

So, keep an eye out for things.  I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but things are about to get fun around here!

Heather, where have you been?

I don’t know who reads my blog, or even cares to read, but for some reason I always feel the need to explain my absence.  So, my absence this time was due to laziness.

I have found something about myself that I didn’t know before.  I do this weird thing, where I get super excited to try something new, but then I fear I will mess it up.  When the fear sets in, I shut down.  I wait until the last minute to get it done, just because if I mess it up…I don’t know actually.  It really makes no sense what so ever!  I’m just a strange person.

I haven’t done much since I have gone MIA.  I have been working a lot with a new script that I am writing for the youth groups drama team.  I love those kids so much, and I want nothing more than for them to succeed in life.  I am giving them all I can.  I feel like it has become a battle though.  My ideas against what is “acceptable” in church.  For me, there are issues that need to be addressed, things that teens need to know exist.  Sadly, some church folks don’t agree with me.  Luckily, up to this point, the two leaders that I am working with on the drama team has liked my ideas.  Meaning, it’s not just me fighting to give these ideas a chance to live.

On top of that, I have been trying to finish up the freelance writing class I have been taking, along with baking cakes and getting classes set up for cake decorating.  This week I am working on doing a cake that is for a spa party and it has been requested that I do a fingernail bottle shaped cake.  It’s another one of those things I got excited about, the feared about.  It should have been done already.  I think my small kitchen plays a role in it not being done as well.  I seriously need my own kitchen!  Unfortunately, I can not afford my own place, so I am stuck living with my parents and stealing the kitchen when I can. Which, there is usually only one solid meal cooked at my house, but for some reason, when I go to make a cake or cake pops everyone needs to get into the kitchen.

Let me make this clear.  I live in a double wide trailer.  Ever seen a kitchen in a double wide trailer?  Some are actually nice, but mine is tiny.  It is not a good place to try to be creative, but I make do.  I think if I had a bigger kitchen, or less annoying family I would bake more, who knows.

October is coming!! It is seriously my favorite month ever!  I have so much to do! I need to figure out a costume and what treats I want to make.  I have to carve a pumpkin.  I have to make my aprons before October. So much to do.

What is coming up this week?  Well, I recently made a giant birthday cookie for my brothers birthday, so I will share that with you.  Wednesday is just another fun wacky day!  Thursday I may be sharing my fingernail polish bottle cake with you…it may be a fail, but I might surprise myself!  Friday I will finally show you what I have had in the works for about a month now.  It’s fun with googly eyes!

Anyways, if you have been waiting for a post…HERE IT IS!  If you are reading my blog for the first time WELCOME! I hope you stay!

Manic Monday: Shopping Spree

It’s raining and all I want to do is sleep.  Sadly, I am stuck at work for at least 4 more hours.  I often feel like work is a waste of time, because there are so many things I could be doing at home right now.  Lucky for you, I have access to my blog while at work and can post when I have a free moment.

Yesterday, I decided I needed a break from blogging.  I didn’t have much to blog about and I had ton of other stuff to do! Like shopping. Yes, I went shopping yesterday.  It’s funny, I used to go shopping to buy clothes, sunglasses, shoes…you know, all that fun stuff.  But now, my shopping consist of buying stuff for cake pops, crafts, baking, and anything I can get my hands dirty with.

iphone 003So, I got stuff for cakes and pies and cake pops!  I bought a pastry cutter, for my pies that I made.  A pastry brush, which I forgot to use.  I have new cookie cutters for Halloween cake pops and sprinkles as well.  I’m so excited.

iphone 002I also got a pattern for an apron and cloth to make three aprons.  Two for Halloween and one to suit my love for skulls.  This will be my first sewing project, there is no telling how horrible it will turn out, but I could end up being a natural!

Don’t worry, I will keep you updated on all projects.  Tomorrow I will share with you the pies I made and Thursday will be cake pops…though, they will not be Halloween yet.  Did I mention that I love Halloween??  It’s the best time of the year and I am happy that the craft stores are already stocking for it.

That’s all I got for today.  Have a safe and wonderful Monday folks!

 

BTW: If you have any baking or sewing tips, please share!
