In Episode 65 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. spends his All Hallow’s Eve on a Halloween-timed retrospective of A Nightmare on Elm Street (and its sequels). Wes Craven (RIP) created such an indelible pop cultural icon in Freddy Krueger, and bolstered by Robert Englund and Heather Langenkamp’s performances and a killer (pun intended) premise, his 1984 classic lives on as one of the most beloved horror films of all time. But does its reputation still hold true 33 years after audiences first met the Springwood Slasher? And which of his several follow-up appearances reigns supreme. Let’s don our razor gloves for a trip backward in time. Down to Elm Street, where a certain infamous horror (anti-)hero awaits. Be sure to stay awake.
We’re excited to hear your feedback as the Crooked Table Podcast continues to evolve. As usual, the show does feature explicit language and, as such, is best considered NSFW.
