Director Wes Craven returns to the Freddy dream pool, writing the best entry since the third movie. Incorporating most of the key actors from the genre defining first instalment, we see Heather Langenkamp, playing herself, twigging that bogeyman Freddy is a bit miffed that no more movies are being made of him. Freddy is starting to break into the real world, threatening to take Heather's son after murdering her special effects expert husband. As her life begins to fall apart, she realises that her life also mirrors word for word the script that Wes Craven is writing to bring Freddy back to the screen.
Bypassing a cinema release and heading straight for the rental market, this third instalment was previously known by the unimaginative I Know What You Did Last Summer 3 and The Hook. First announced in 2000 the idea was to have Jennifer Love Hewitt, Brandy and Freddie Prince Jr. return with a script written with them in mind. Time passed and the movie was never made. When a new script was put together rumour had it that Love Hewitt was to appear in a cameo. She doesn't.
Four teens from a small Colorado town end up victimised by someone in an odd fitting fisherman's coat, after a prank they pull one July 4th goes wrong. The plot sounds exactly like the first movie to the point that when I read about it I thought it was actually a remake rather than a sequel. Scripted by Michael Weiss (Crocodile, Octopus (both 2000)) and originally slated to be directed by Damon Santostefano (Severed Ties (1992)) this third instalment sees actor Don Shanks (Halloween 5, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (1989, 2005)) step into the role of The Fisherman.
The tagline for the 1978 version of Dawn of the Dead announced that when there was no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth. The same could be said for the zombie sub-genre the movie's director Romero created with his seminal 1968 pic Night of the Living Dead. If our streets are (fortunately) not awash with the shambling decaying dead, the shelves of the local Blockbuster positively groan under the weight of so much un-dead fare. In recent years alone, we have been 'treated' to the ghoulish delights of Zombie Strippers, The Zombie Diaries, [REC] and its US remake Quarantine, Undead or Alive and more, with only the barest slither breaking out successfully from their crypts upon the local DVD store shelves and providing the paying punter with anything bordering on decent entertainment.
Count Dracula is DEAD, not just un-dead but really really DEAD. He has been killed by his nemesis Professor Van, sorry Von, Helsing (Edward Van Sloan). But fear not, for there is more Transylvania vampire wickedness to be had, for the fanged one apparently had a daughter, the Countess Marya Zaleska (Gloria Holden).
The Countess isn't happy about her future prospects, you know, nights out on the town looking for prey, living forever, that sort of thing – and as setting fire to Dracula's body failed to free her of her affliction she takes to seeing a psychiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Garth (Otto Kruger), who also happens to be treating Van, sorry, Von Helsing, with an eye towards breaking this cursed life that's been afflicted upon her.
Dracula (1931), at that time, was the Universal's biggest box office success. Dracula's Daughter was its first sequel. After Universal hit the box office jackpot with their Frankenstein (1931) sequel, director James Whales' The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), they came up with the idea that if a female variation worked for their lolloping Boris Karloff creation, then the same should work if they gave a female spin on their money-making Transylvanian blood-sucker.
