Great Moments In Horror Hair History: Johnny Depp In ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ (1984)

Valentine’s Day may be long gone now (even though it was just yesterday), but that’s not going to stop me from giving you ladies (and some men) out there a special treat.  Let me talk about hair for a minute.  More specifically some hair from 80’s horror movies and even more specifically, the hair on none other than Johnny Depp (Glen) from A Nightmare On Elm Street!


Don’t you just want to run your fingers all through that follicle goodness?  I guess you would say it’s a poofy-feathered do that doesn’t require much Aqua Net to give it that bouncy youthful look.  What the hell did I just write there?  Clearing I’m stammering because I’m so taken by Glen’s hypnotic hair.  Let’s just be glad that the pic didn’t show his cut-off football shirt, or else none of us would be able to concentrate!

Tis a sad thing that this pic was pretty much the last we saw of Glen before he became bed food and a glorious spouting pool of blood.  So with that, it gives me great honor to induct Glen aka Johnny Depp into the class of Great Moments In Horror Hair History! Now get back to work and stop staring!

Great Moments In Horror Hair History: Malachai From ‘Children Of The Corn’ (1984)

Sometimes if you are a young kid growing up in a small town, you feel the need to want to kill anyone over the age of 18 to appease a religious entity so you can have a full and healthy corn harvest for the year.  A bit excessive?  Yes.  But think of all of that delicious buttery corn you can eat because of it!  Sometimes, corn isn’t important though and hair is.  A random sentence, sure, but when you’re talking about a hair specimen as glorious as the one on top of Malachai from Children Of The Corn – you’ll let all of that randomness slide.


Issac can’t even concentrate while Malachai is yelling at him because his hair his so hypnotizing and magnificent.  Bonus points for it being red btw.  I’m almost half-waiting for Issac to bring some shampoo up into the shot and “Feel the rain on your skin….” to start playing in the background.  Sure, Malachai was pretty scary in Children Of The Corn – but his hair definitely was not.  So without further adieu, it gives me great honor to induct Malachai aka Courtney Gains into the class of Great Moments In Horror Hair History! Now all of you outlanders get out of this post!
