Last year about the same time as the Nightmare on Elm Street Remake came out I came across the trailer below. A long time NOES fan took it upon himself to make a new vision of Freddy Krueger that was familiar yet different enough to feel like a new take on the character. Chris Johnson basically came up with the concept that a bunch of Hollywood writers and producers couldn't and provided us with a glimpse of how you can breath new life into Freddy.

In fact I haven't found it in quite a few years, though I haven't looked that hard for it. But, this years "Pumpkin Patch" candle I'm happy to report is the good ol' Spiced pumpkin scent! Definitely my favorite of the bunch! I wasn't sure about the Witch's Brew candle, so I only ordered a small one to try out. The scent is that of patchouli and it has a little bit of that earthy moss scent as well. I'm not a huge fan of it...
