Obligatory note about having made an effort to find a better place to put this. Following Wes Craven's death last Wednesday, I decided to review A Nightmare on Elm Street for my weekly Crux column. It was more interesting to write about than I expected. (On a side note, I did find it amusing to be reviewing a bloody horror film — a genre for which I have no affinity — one week after finishing my first year at Crux with a more personal piece on limiting one's exposure to movie violence!

http://www.bfi.org.uk/news-opinion/news-bfi/lists/10-great-horror-films-21st-century The only two of these that I've seen are Session 9 and The Descent, but both of these are legit greats in my book, so I'm curious about the rest.

Vegetables have never been so gruesome! Anyway, here's a rave review from the Guardian: http://www.guardian....d-studio-review and one from the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph...dio-review.html And here's a trailer: Anyone interested?
