Freddy Krueger or Cheese Pizza?

Georgia was awesome. I slept in a room where a dude killed himself, I spent an hour of the vacation as a blind man, I saw lots of dead penis, and I valiantly white water rafted down treacherous white waters - but i'm not gonna bore you with the details of my unrelated to the world of horror journey. Instead, being that i've been absent from this blog for almost two weeks now, I figured you'd prefer it if I jumped straight back into the shit you come here for. The downside of this is that you may never know just what kinds of paranormal shit I experienced in that haunted room.....*


Can you believe that we're mere days away from the return of Freddy Krueger, albeit a new version of Freddy Krueger, to the big screen? For horror bloggers the world over, this means that the next few days are gonna be chock full of Elm Street related content and while I don't plan on overdoing it, I do have a couple little Freddy related treats up my own sleeve for the week. Rather than bore you with reviews of all the films in the franchise (Dream Warriors > all), i've decided to instead kick this celebration off with a fun little game I like to call Freddy Krueger or Cheese Pizza? - the basis of the game of course being that my beloved dream demon totally looks like a slice of cheese pizza - it's a fact that was even exploited in Dream Master, when Freddy serves up his own brand of 'soul food' to one of his victims. So here's the challenge....

Take a gander at the eight images below and leave a comment telling me which you think are magnified images of a cheese pizza and which you've deemed are magnified images of the burnt face of everyone's favorite wise cracking finger fucker. Have at it!

*Do you really think i'd hold out if I experienced even the remotest of paranormal occurences? Despite spending over a week in a room where an old man blew his own brains out with a shotgun years prior, I did not even get the faintest sense of his presence. A bit of a bummer in retrospect, as it would've made for great blogging material, but I gotta say, at the time, I was kinda glad Harry let me sleep in peace. Now leave a comment with your guesses, will ya?

7. is definitely Freddy!!

And also, did you know Monster Mania in Hunt Valley's doing a Dream Warriors reunion? (Yes Dream Warriors > all). And I'd totally love an overload of Freddy stuff, given that the land of tv is going to give us nothing in the way of marathons.

Johnny said...

Ya, I wasn't initially sure if I was gonna make it to the Hunt Valley one, being that i'm going to the Cherry Hill one just a few weeks before, but I don't know that I can miss a Dream Warriors reunion!

Hey I was in Georgia ealier this month and got bitten by a huge German Shepherd. Good times.

Great contest idea, I am gonna say that Freddy is numbers 1,3,4,6 and the rest is pizza.

Cat said...

I'm bummed that Tim Curry cancelled, but I haven't met Robert Englund so that'll totally make up for it.

You should go! My dad and I are very jazzed (my dad's a big horror buff, which is funny given that he also happens to be Santa)

Bridgett said...

1,3,4 and 7 are Freddy I think.

inSain9876 said...

I'm gonna go with 1,4, and 7 being Freddy.

Speaking of Freddy, did you get in on the Fright Rags Freddy exclusive shirt pack??? The announced it while you were gone and I didn't know if you had any internet or not.

Johnny said...

insain9876 - Yep, i'm all signed up =)

Strange Kid said...

Yeah, so far the entire Fright Rags package looks sooo freakin wicked! I am really holding out hope that Friday well worth the price of admission.

Here's my guess:

Freddy 1,4,6,7
Pizza 2,3,5,8

Johnny said...

Q) Does Fright Rags ever dissapoint?

A) No, they do not.


Geof said...

Glad you had a good time and that you didn't leave me hanging with your (not-so much) paranormal experiences. But I am glad you left out the details of dead penis though.

2,3,5,8 pizza. Others Freddy.

And the Dream Warriors is too much to resist, even if I can only go down for the one day.

Bryce Wilson said...

Good to have you back Johnny.

I've been doing a marathon of The Nightmare series on my blog in preparation:

Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve.

And look I don't know if we get a vote, but I for one definitely want to hear further about your haunted adventures in Georgia.

Johnny said...

Bryce - In terms of the haunted room, there's really not all that much more to tell than what I typed up there, but I may go ahead and tell the full story at some point in the future.

kaiyn said...

I'm going to say 2,3,5 and 8 are pizza, and the rest of them are Freddy.

Johnny said...



Congrats to Strange Kid, Geof, and Kaiyn for getting them all correct! Thanks to all who played!
