New Line Cinema's Tales Of Horror: Issue #1 (2007)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
07.02.21

New Line Cinema's Tales Of Horror: Issue #1 (2007) This premiere issue features a Texas Chainsaw story and a Nightmare on Elm Street tale. in "The Texas Chainsaw Salesman" a chainsaw salesman in Texas runs across a family who could either be his best-or worst-customers. The two old women invite him in-and he agrees to sample their meat kebabs if they'll hear his pitch. After a while he insists he hears a chainsaw noise coming from within the big old house by they insist it's their cousin practicing the violin. He doesn't believe them. The second story, "Copycat", has Freddy Krueger's biggest fan moving in on his dream territory and it upsets him a bit. Freddy confronts the man, who proposes that he be his agent in the waking world. The scarred villain reluctantly agrees because they man threatens to expose him to the residents of Springwood, so he'd have no more prey. However, Freddy figures out a way around this and it doesn't end well for the wannabee dream slayer. This is a great idea for a comic, presenting short stories that build on the mythos established in the movies. Too bad there was only one issue... Animosity: Volume 1 (2017) creator and writer: Marguerite Bennett art: Rafael De Latorre This is one of those stories in which the animals suddenly become intelligent. The premise sounds like something I read in the old TWILIGHT ZONE magazine, in which humans could suddenly hear what their pets were thinking. But in this graphic novel, the effects are much more profound, not only for mankind but the animals themselves. Things get very action-oriented, with some animals taking revenge on the humans that tortured and killed their kind, to animal predators suddenly having remorse for their eating habits. The main story is about a young girl, Jesse, and her hound, Sandor. When Sandor obtains his intelligence the first thing he tells her is how much he loves her, which provides a big contrast to the majority of what begins to happen in this world. Then, we go to one week later, one month later and one year later so we see how much everything has changed. What I found most interesting about this is that the animals don't just get more intelligent, it's as if they suddenly get human personalities, with human wants and needs, both the good and the bad. Hence, all the different problems that arise. I can definitely see this made into an animated feature. Highly recommended.
