HEATHER LAGENKAMP & AMANDA WYSS
As an impressionable young boy watching “A Nightmare On Elm Street” for the first time, you latch on to the first images that came your way. They were of blonde teen Amanda Wyss as Tina Gray in her nightdress being stalked by the razor-fingers dream master Freddy Krueger. That ignited my fascination with blondes ever since! Then the focus shifts to cutie Heather Lagenkamp as Nancy Thompson and the memorable bath tub scene that sees Freddy’s sharpened gloves ominously head towards her. That’s when the desire in me to save adorable girls started…hehe. So it’s sensational to see a reunion of this inspirational duo at Days Of The Dead 2011. I won’t be the first nor the last in exalting the influence Heather and Amanda has given the horror world and they remain such endearingly awe-inspiring figures.
