To celebrate the journey toward Halloween 2014 I’m going to do something I’ve wanted to attempt since I first started writing here on Halloween Love … put together a definitive list of my personal favorite horror movie moments and scenes.
I hope you will agree with some, maybe raise an eyebrow at others and fingers crossed a few will be pleasant surprises.
48 : A Nightmare On Elm Street 1984 : The Bathtub.
We’ve all been there … After a long hard day you slip into a warm and welcoming bath, surrounded by bubbles and steam and water it’s very easy to close your eyes and drift off for a few moments. Wes Craven takes this familiar setting and uses it to perfectly demonstrate how vulnerable the Elm Street kids are every time they begin to enter the dream realm. Freddy’s glove slowly rising from the water becomes a visual indication that Nancy has succumbed to her fatigue, and when she is suddenly awoken due to a knock on the bathroom door the glove disappears beneath the surface in an instant.
Memorable, provocative, and perfectly staged. Just one of many great moments from this horror classic.
