Last year I sat down and watched every single Nightmare on Elm Street film and splurged my thoughts about them on the internet. It was an endeavour that went from the dizzying heights of the first film to the genuine surprise of Dream Masters and New Nightmare to the absolute horror of Freddy’s Dead. It was also great fun. So, this year I decided to do the same and delve into another slasher franchise, Halloween. Now, obviously this would have made a lot more sense around a week ago, but there are ten fucking films so give me a break. (I’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but when discussing an entire franchise there will be the occasional titbit dropped.)
Festival season is up and running and while festivals like Bloodstock have been pulling out exciting line ups involving the returning Emperor and the always loved Megadeth Download have held off on letting the cat out of the bag on their headliners for next summer. That is until today, when Andy Copping and co have decided to let the first of said cats out of said bag and let the world know exactly who they can expect to see when they are set up in that beautiful field down Donnington way.
