Sequelcast 2: Freddy’s Nightmares: “Sister’s Keeper”
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss “Sister’s Keeper,” the sequel to the pilot episode of the short-lived horror anthology TV series Freddy’s Nightmares – A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series. Last time around, the cop who killed Freddy Krueger ended up dying in a nightmare haunted by Freddy himself. A decade later, his twin daughters are now high school students; one is mousy (Gry Park), the other popular (Hili Park). Can they survive the same horrific dreams that plagued their late father?
Mat tried to watch with the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe films with Doctor Strange, but found it too boring to finish. Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) was too much of a dick, and the main story took forever to get started. Despite the heady mix of martial arts and surrealism, Mat bailed out of watching the whole movie, but might finish it at a later date.
Thrasher introduced a friend to Dr. Who and the Daleks, the first of two theatrical Doctor Who flicks from the 1960s. The Doctor (Peter Cushing) battles the ruthless Daleks, the classic “Exterminate!”-spouting robot baddies from the long-running TV series. Thrasher finds this movie to be a bit of good fun, although Peter Cushing does not hold a candle some of the better Doctors from the TV series.
