Greetings and warm welcomes to the letter K in our AtoZChallenge. Today I have two fictional phantoms who return for vengeance, only one of them is righteous and the other is very definitely not.
Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street)Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street, the local teenage population is targeted and stalked by Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) in their dreams.
He kills them one by one as they sleep, seemingly completely invulnerable.
Freddy was once a child killer, who escaped from the law because of a technicality, only to be hunted down by a mod of angry parents. They then burnt him alive in the building where he used to take his victims; hence his pretty face. Now he takes his revenge on their children.
Don't sleep or Freddy will get you.
Jake Kesey (The Wraith)
Jake Kesey (Charlie Sheen) arrives in the small town of Brooks, Arizona on the back of a motor cycle at the same time that a mysterious figure in Dodge Interceptor shows up to teach the local gang a lesson.
The gang, used to extorting people out of their cars by illegally racing with them, cannot beat the Interceptor as it kills them one by one.
Jake is really Jamie, a boy killed by the gang when he fell in love with a girl that Packard (Nick Cassavetes), the leader of the gang wanted.
Now he has returned to save Keri (Sherilyn Fenn), the girl he loves, and the town where he live from the gang who ended his life, accompanied by plenty of rock music.
I love this film, and its heroic phantom, even though it is corny.
So do you prefer your phantoms to be righteously vengeful or hideously evil and just out for blood?
