It’s October and that means lots of horror movies. Howie Weingarten returns with Jen O’Brien to discuss the most 80’s of 80’s slashers, Freddy Kreuger. They talk the genius of Wes Craven’s original “Nightmare on Elm Street”, how Robert Englund’s personality differentiated the character from Jason and Michael Myers, and how overexposure watered the horror icon down faster than you remember. Plus, the wild, cheap landscape of 80’s syndicated series for everything that wasn’t “Star Trek: the Next Generation”. [EP300]
