What is the first movie trilogy?

User Avatar
The real first movie trilogy is "The Golem trilogy". The Golem (1915) Lost film The Golem and the Dancing Girl (1917) Lost film The Golem: How he came into the World (1920) a prequel, maybe the first prequel ever made. All three films films feature Paul Wegener as the Golem. Frankenstein (1931) Bride of Frankenstein (1935) Son of Frankenstein (1939) All three films feature Boris Karloff as the monster along with other overlapping actors reprising their characters. The trilogy tells a story arc and comes to a clear ending at the final movie.

How did Mary Shaw die?

User Avatar
When Mary Shaw was alive she was a ventrilliquist. Meaning that she could make it look like a doll could talk with out her help. At the biginning of one of her shows she opened up a case that she kept her doll Billy in and he wasn't there so she asked the audence "Where is Billy?" and she pointed to a boy in the audence and told him to look under his seat and Billy was there. And then she thanked the boy and went on with the show. During the show another boy shouted that she talked for Billy and a few days later that boy went missing and Mary Shaw was accused of murdering the boy and so the townspeople found her and killed her by ripping out her tongue and now she tracks down the realitives of the townspeople who killed her and kills them by ripping out their tounges. That's all right except when the other boy went missing . . . they never found him , he was gone w/o a trace . They never knew who took him or if he lived , ect . But they never really suspected Mary shaw . Mary shaw was murdered , but nobody knos who did it . The townspeople didnt do it . They never found the person that murdered her . & ever since that little boy accused Mary of making billy talk , people started going missing in that town & being misteriously murdered .

What is a poltergeist?

User Avatar
The poltergeist phenomena seem to have their origins in psychokinesis (PK) which is the apparent ability to affect the environment with the mind. It is unclear how this manifests. Over forty years of parapsychological research into poltergeists suggests that they are predominantly produced by the living, not the dead. Poltergeist phenomena is quite real and affects physical objects. In this sense it is different from an apparitional experience, which usually simply involves seeing, hearing or otherwise sensing someone or something unexpected in an unusual manner. Apparitional experiences can be accompanied by the impression that movement has occurred, such as a door opening. But on subsequent investigation no factual evidence can be found that the movement actually happened. In contrast, the poltergeist phenomena usually leaves clear evidence behind. Poltergeist agents are living people who seem to be able to function locally or at a distance either spontaneously or intentionally. Spontaneous agents are unaware they are producing PK effects, while intentional agents are aware of what they are doing. It is possible that a person can be a poltergeist (PK) agent and target themselves. Studies on poltergeist agents suggest they often live in turmoil. They often have psychological and physical problems and it is not uncommon to find they live in toxic family environments. The objects targeted by the poltergeist agent often make sense if their psychoses are understood. The phenomena can be limited or removed if the agent's belief systems can be altered. This is the likely reason that procedrues like prayer, banishements and exorcisms work on occasion. If the poltergeist agent is unaware of these activities though, it is likely they will fail. Generally an improvement in the conditions which bring on the phenomena are the best way to reduce or eliminate them. Each must be taken on a case by case basis. Alternative Answer: Many people believe the poltergeist is an invisible, mischievous ghost, but really its YOU. A poltergeist is the vibration of a stressed human ( mostly teenagers ). If their dealing with some problem, or just depressed and stressed, the emotion can become so powerful, that it becomes a vibration, and that vibration moves things on its own. At first I thought my house was haunted, but when I learned this, I laughed, I was the haunt of my own home!

How did Freddy Krueger die?

User Avatar
Freddy Krueger was killed by the parents of the children of Springwood because he was truthfully the murderer and kidnapper of the missing children of Springwood.He died again in "Freddy's Dead: The final nightmare" this time killed by maggie. But he's not really dead (again). He had killed billions of kids in elm street already after he kidnapped them and the parents got mad and they stormed his house and threw a whole bunch of things on fire through the windows and caught his house on fire at night when he was sleeping. which he then ran out to his hiding place, got chased and was thrown into the furnace there and burned alive. the next morning he was dead in the furnace and none of the parents got put in jail so he came back but this time even stronger then he discovered his burns on his skin and he got up and sewed a glove to his hand and sewed five knives with extremely sharp blades to his gloves and grabbed a top hat and left to dream world where He could kill kids without any problems and he did and became master of the dream world

Is the popular opera 'Aida' based on a true story?

User Avatar
No, it is fictional. It is claimed that the Egyptologist Auguste Mariette wrote a brief plot for an opera in 1869 at the request of the Khedive. Although there are scholars who argue that the scenario was really written by Temistocle Solera. In 1870 this concept, worked into a scenario by Camille du Locle, was proposed to Giuseppe Verdi. He accepted it as a subject for Aida. The links below gives more details.

The movie "Without a Trace" is loosely based on the Etan Patz kidnapping story. The ending in the movie is "Hollywood happy". The real kidnapping case is still unsolved and Etan was declared dead in 2001.

How did Freddy Krueger become Freddy Krueger?

User Avatar
Freddy Kruger was a child killer, known as The SpringWood Slasher. He was sent to trial for the murders but got off on a technicality (Because of lack of a warrant). Rather than let him go free, the parents hunted him down to the boiler room/basement of the local elementary school where he used to take his victims. They burned him in the boiler room but kept his glove as a reminder. In the original films, Freddy was just a child killer, not a molester/pedophile. At first, writer/director Wes Craven planned on making him a pedophile, but after awhile he changed his mind and decided against it. This idea was resurrected -- against Craven's wishes -- in the new 2010 remake. The new remakes portray Freddy as both a molester and killer, and the school has been renamed to Bedham Preschool, where he was a groundskeeper who lived in the basement. To give you a little history on Freddy's early life... His mother was a nun (Sister Mary Helena, but later called Amanda), and worked at Our Lady Of Sorrows mental Asylum ran by the church. AFter going in to give food to the worst of the inmates, she was accidently locked in the asylum by a guard and was repeatedly rapped by 100s of crazies (Freddy is taunted as The Son Of 100 Maniacs as a young boy). Like all serial killers he was abused, neglected and enjoyed killing animals and worked his way up to killing people
