    Anybody remember this show? It's a twilight zone-style horror anthology that played back in the late 80s, and now they show it once in a while on satellite tv. Hosted by Freddy Krueger.

    I downloaded the whole series and just started watching it. When I was in college, I used to get stoned to watch it every weekend. :rofl:

    I was never into that show for some reason.

    Twilight Zone, Tales from the Dark Side, Monsters, and Freddy's Nightmares were the ones for me.

    I think Nightmare (the movies and the tv series) was a great horror concept. Bad dreams are always freaky, because it's like your own mind turning against you, and the idea of somebody who can use it and manipulate it intentionally is scary shit. As cheesy as it was, Dreamscape really freaked me out when I saw it. A monster you can't fight because he isn't real (physically) makes it even worse. And then to top it all off, using the way a dream can seem real (ever dream that you woke up, only to realize you were still dreaming? :noes:) to blend dreams and reality was awesome.

    The Nightmare on Elm Street stuff really grabs a hold of your base fears.

    Yeah like never being able to wake up when you want/need to? Fuck, I see some dude with claws after me in my dreams...I'm waking the fuck up right there!

    Then again, you can only go so long without sleeping :( We're doomed! :run:
