So what happens when you mix Waititi with Flight of the Choncords

The only downside with watching Wes Craven’s horror masterpiece so many times is that it doesn’t scare me nearly as close as it did when I first viewed it. Although, any scene with Tina in a bodybag is pretty fucking terrifying. 

    A Nightmare on Elm Street  is so simple and yet has so much…

    I firmly believe they could task Denis Villeneuve with a Howard the Duck remake and he’d somehow turn that into a masterpiece. 

    He’s what Christopher Nolan wishes he could be.
