Isiah Thomas: Basketball's Horror Movie Villain

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent IAugust 7, 2010

When it comes to horror cinema, the films of the 'Friday the 13th', 'Halloween' and 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series are among the most iconic in Hollywood history.

And the theme that is common to these masterpieces of cinematic art is the omnipresence of an unstoppable killing machine who can’t be put down with bullets, fire or any form of stabbing weapon.

This simple formula has resulted in a total of twelve Friday the 13th, ten Halloween, and nine Nightmare on Elm Street films over the past thirty years.

Although this movie genre has gradually lost its luster in recent years, it appears the basketball world has a burning desire to see a revival as they’re responsible for creating and sustaining the life force of an unstoppable killing machine of their own.
