Show Notes

Episode Synopsis

This week the Hack or Slash team fulfills a popular request by comparing A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), an iconic 80's slasher, to its 2010 remake. The group compares the artistic differences between Robert Englund and Jackie Earle Haley, lays plans for a Hack or Slash haunted house, debates whether height matters in a villain, and contemplates whether the 2010 remake was successful in its attempt to go dark. This episode contains spoilers.
