I recently had the pleasure of watching the 1973 Danish exploitation movie, The Sinful Dwarf for the special monthly Cultcore episode of the Cinema File Podcast hosted by my good friend Andrew. This movie was awesome and filled with disturbing, unique, glorious sleaze–it centers around a little person named Olaf who lives with his mother and helps her run their sex slave ring that is hidden away in the apartment building they rent out to tenants. I have a bigger essay planned for this movie that will take me some time to complete, so in the mean time I felt that a Haiku would be the perfect way to share my affection for The Sinful Dwarf.

The Muppets are really great, I have been spending time watching all of the major Muppet movies that I missed when I was a kid–I only saw Muppets From Space and Muppet Treasure Island during childhood. As I have been spending more time with the Muppets, I have loved them even more than I already did, they are all about fun, happiness, friendship, creativity and remind us that all of these great things can happen regardless of how different we may be or may think we may be from someone else. The Muppets are such great friends and do so many wonderful things together regardless of the fact that they are so different and would be expected to be so dissimilar from one another. I love them and decided to write a Haiku about The Muppet Movie and what I got from it during my very first viewing a week ago. Enjoy!
Just a little haiku about A Nightmare on Elm Street (Craven 1984)! I wrote this haiku with the intention of focusing on the overview of just the first of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies; however, after completing it I realized that it also works as a basic overview of all six movies of the series…Freddy kills you in your dream, he kills you in real life. I hope to make a unique haiku for each movie of the six part series as well as New Nightmare…hopefully that’s a dream that will soon become a reality! Enjoy!
