Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP34 - Freddy’s Nightmares “Freddy’s Tricks and Treats”

October 30, 2018

Are you ready for Freddy?? That’s right, unlike Friday the 13th, Freddy actually shows up for his TV show! There’s plenty of striped sweaters, terrible puns and razor gloves in Freddy’s Nightmares! And just in time for the holiday, it’s a Halloween episode featuring Mariska Margitay! Fellow Elm Street fan, Brent from Home Video Hustle, joins us to talk about Kruger’s small screen slashings! It’s the last episode of the Halloween season and we wanted to go out with a scream!!! Plus Morgan gets us to reveal our recurring nightmares, Brent tells us about his brother’s Freddy phobia, and Mike insists that candy knives are a thing. Our words of advice: Don’t be a Mark.
