Robert Englund Says He's Too Old to Play Freddy Krueger Again

19 October 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to horror movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of the genre, featuring one of the biggest horror villains ever. Freddy Krueger is a legend and he has been portrayed by Robert Englund in nearly every movie. But sadly, it looks like the actor has given up on the thought of ever revisiting the horror classic. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Englund confirmed that he will never play Freddy Krueger on the big screen again.

It's hard to believe, but Robert Englund is 70-years old and just doesn't think that he can pull off playing Freddy anymore. Freddy Krueger is a physically demanding character and Englund doesn't think that his body, specifically his back and spine, can handle it at his age. He had this to say.

Robert Englund says he is too old to play Freddy Krueger again

19 October 2017 7:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 2010 A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot was panned critically, and put any potential for a rebooted franchise soundly to sleep. Cut to 2017 with New Line preparing to try, once again, to bring Freddy Krueger back from the dead with The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson working on the script. The obvious questions is: just who will don the fedora this time around?

It’s tough to say, though Freddy himself has pegged Kevin Bacon for his successor. One thing is for sure: Robert Englund will not be returning to play Freddy again. Speaking to EW, the horror icon put any hopes fans may have had for his return into the furnace:

“I’m too old to do another Freddy now. If I do a fight scene now it’s got to be real minimal because I can’t snap my head for eight different takes and different angles. »

Robert Englund Puts Final Nail in Freddy Krueger’s Coffin

18 October 2017 5:34 PM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Robert Englund‘s portrayal as the A Nightmare On Elm Street boogeyman Freddy Krueger is among the greatest horror performances in history. It’s so iconic that it breathed new life into the slasher subgenre years after Friday the 13th and Halloween had already staked claim as horror champions. It’s because of Englund’s personal touch that it will be impossible to […] »

Robert Englund Reveals Whether He’d Ever Play Freddy Krueger Again

18 October 2017 3:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We all know the story of Wes Craven’s 1984 horror classic A Nightmare On Elm Street. Terrifying dream demon Freddy Krueger stalks the teenagers of Springwood through their slumber – torturing them to death in gory and disturbing ways before they wake. Without a doubt, Freddy (originally played by Robert Englund) is one of the most legendary villains of modern cinema – with his red and green striped jumper, knifed glove, and burned visage – and he also finds himself on the ever-growing list of horror icons poised for a return.

With Michael Myers and John Kramer (Aka the Jigsaw Killer) bound for the silver screen once more – Halloween in 2018; Jigsaw later this month – Warner Bros. and New Line are plotting a new incarnation of Elm Street, with David Leslie Johnson (The Conjuring 2) on script duties.

Aside from some surprising story trinkets that emerged not too long ago, though, both studios have »

Dead By Daylight Slasher Video Game to Add Freddy Krueger?

16 October 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The slasher video game Dead by Daylight has already given gamers the gory goods by adding Michael Myers and Leatherface as killers in their lethal lineup, but now it looks like the dream stalker of Springwood could join the video game's blood-spattered ranks...

In a new video released today, Dead by Daylight warned gamers not to fall asleep as screeching slash marks were etched into metal in a pattern similar to Freddy Krueger's bladed glove.

For those unfamiliar with Dead by Daylight, the video game (available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One) allows you to play as a killer who stalks survivors and tries to kill them one by one, or as a survivor fighting to live to see another day. When Dead by Daylight released their Haddonfield map, it allowed gamers to play as both Michael Myers and Laurie Strode, so it's possible that if Freddy Krueger were added to the game, »

Bruce Campbell Explains Why Ash Vs. Jason Vs. Freddy Wouldn’t Work

13 October 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Vorhees is cool. Freddy Krueger is cool. Ash Williams is extremely cool. So tossing all three of them into the same film and letting them bloodily duke it out sounds like the badass monster mash of the century. With that in mind, we have to ask, why did it never happen?

After all, 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason tore up the box office upon its release and neither character is any stranger to chronic sequelitis. Indeed, for the longest time, it was rumored the Ash vs. Jason vs. Freddy was on the brink of being greenlit, only for it to disappear back into development hell.

Now, in an interview at Nycc, Bruce Campbell finally explained why the project never got off the ground:

“We had a five minute conversation with New Line Cinema about Ash vs. Jason vs. Freddy. They approached us. So they go, ‘What do you think about that? »

A Look Back at A Nightmare On Elm Street – Screening This Weekend at Marcus Wehrenberg Theatres

12 October 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jake Billingsley

Wes​ ​Craven’s​ ​A​ ​Nightmare​ ​on​ ​Elm​ ​Street​ ​is​ ​the​ ​second​ ​film​ ​in​ ​Marcus​ ​Wehrenberg Theatre’s​ ​friday​ ​night​ ​series.​ ​The​ ​film​ ​will​ ​be​ ​shown​ ​October​ ​12-14,​ ​and​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​one screening​ ​each​ ​night​ ​at​ ​10​ ​Pm.​ ​Admission​ ​is​ ​only​ ​$5.​ ​For​ ​more​ ​details​ ​and​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of participating​ ​theaters,​ ​go​ ​Here

Wes Craven’s hit slasher film A Nightmare on Elm Street was a fresh take on horror through a fearsome, distinct character. The comics will address him commonly as the “Springwood Killer,” but in the films we see him as a striped sweater wearing serial killer. Freddy Krueger is a burnt, psychopathic, unrelenting, child killer that hungers for revenge; in total, he stays hungry for 9 films. Craven’s genius is evident with the concept he explores throughout the original film. If you fall asleep, you are going to die. How are you going to die? »

New Stranger Things teaser counts up to Friday the 13th final trailer debut

I've got to say, the marketing campaign for the second season of Matt and Ross Duffer's Stranger Things has been one stellar '80s throwback after the next. Between the cool, vintage character posters and art designed to emulate notable '80s properties like Firestarter, Alien, Jaws, The Evil Dead, Stand By Me, A Nightmare On Elm Street and more, I think the program's PR...

The Slayer – The Blu Review

11 October 2017 7:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Roger Carpenter

My guess is that all true movie lovers have a list of films which remain unavailable on a decent DVD or Blu-Ray release and for which they are waiting for some company to pick up and give it a nice release.  This was true for me regarding The Slayer.  I first saw the film in the early-to-mid-eighties on a VHS double-bill with Fred Olen Ray’s Scalps.  Both films were pretty terrible quality but both were fun in their own way and I duped both and kept them for a long time.  Scalps has long since been on DVD (and recently Blu-Ray), and I have long owned a copy of that film which I still pull out from time to time and watch again.  But my dupe of The Slayer died decades ago and I hadn’t viewed the film in a long time… »

Title for the abandoned sequel to the Friday the 13th remake revealed

11 October 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zack Snyder’s 2004 Dawn of the Dead seemed to open the floodgates to many more horror remakes over the next several years. And why not? The film was quite successful, and popularized the concept of “re-imagining” horror classics for modern audiences instead of just shot-for-shot remakes. However, as more horror remakes came out, things began to feel a bit stale. Some were fairly good, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, while others — such as A Nightmare on Elm Street — were very poorly received. In 2009, Platinum Dunes took a gamble on remaking Friday the 13th, hoping to revive the franchise. The film had its fans, but not enough to warrant a sequel.

The sequel, it turns out, was actually pretty fleshed out, and writing team Damian Shannon and Mark Swift — who wrote the 2009 remake as well as Freddy vs. Jason — just shared the title of the unused script on their joint Twitter page. »

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies

10 October 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We all have to start somewhere, right? Despite its history of cinema classics and major box office success, the horror genre is often maligned as somehow less worthy of respect than other types of films. For whatever reason, it's not as easy to get an A-list actor to headline a horror movie as it should be. But beggars can't be choosers. Plenty of Oscar-nomintaed thespians had no problem making horror flicks on the way up. Today, we're looking at 10 future A-List actors who made horror movies before they became big time celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger

There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood. In 1994, relative unknowns Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger had already been in Dazed and Confused »

The Hidden

Blu-ray

Warner Archive Collection

1987 / Color /1.78:1 / Street Date October 4, 2017

Starring Kyle MacLachlan and Michael Nouri

Cinematography by Jacques Haitkin

Written by Jim Kouf

Produced by Stephen Diener, Dennis Harris, Jeffrey Klein

Directed by Jack Sholder

After a demanding evening spent bumping and grinding at The Harem Room, a weary young dancer packs up her gear and exits the club to a chorus of catcalls. She responds by whipping out a state-of-the-art shotgun and laying waste to not only to the would-be lotharios but a good section of Hollywood Boulevard. Is this the continuing story of Abel Ferrara’s Ms. 45? No, it’s Jack Sholder’s The Hidden, one of the wittiest B movies of the eighties.

That stripper’s gun-happy rampage is just the latest in a series of increasingly bizarre crimes catapulting the baffled police into a futile game of whack-a-mole; as soon as the cops eliminate one gunman, »
