Robert Englund gets into the coffee business
January 5th, 2021 under Robert Englund. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know about you, but after I saw Nightmare on Elm Street 3, I started chasing tablespoons of instant coffee with Coca Cola to stay awake in school. It really worked. That was then, now Robert Englund has his own brand of coffee to help us stay awake and away from him.

The legendary Horror movie icon teamed up with Dead Sled Coffee for Robert Englund’s Stay Awake Blend of java. The beans are described as the “perfect blend of a high-quality single-origin Robusta Vietnamese coffee and a blend of Arabica beans from South America. All of which are ground down to a Turkish-style grind. Hence the name ‘Turkish Blend.'”

It sounds like it is strong enough to keep Freddy Krueger away from our dreams. At least, I hope it is.

Englund is not the only celebrity to team up with Dead Sled Coffee. KISS wants to make sure we Rock & Roll All Nite with them, so they also have a blend with the company.

BTWF: Breckin Meyer in Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy’s Dead
November 3rd, 2020 under Before They Were Famous, Robert Englund. [ Comments: none ]


Before Breckin Meyer starred in Caffeine, he should have drunk some in Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy’s Dead. The 16-year-old had such a baby face back in that 1991 movie.

Meyer had this to say about working on the film, “Freddy’s Dead directed by Rachel Talalay. Before I made the movie, I was a horror kid. I already had @RobertBEnglund’s autograph. Got it at the airport when I was around 12. He wrote ‘see you in your dreams, ya little bastard”. And this was MY FIRST MOVIE! Total dream come true.'” Dream, or nightmare?

BTWF: Robert Englund in Buster & Billie
March 19th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Robert Englund. [ Comments: none ]


Before Robert Englund was killing high school kids in Nightmare on Elm Street, he was a kid in high school in Buster & Billie. How cute was the 26-year-old in that 1974 movie?

Englund posted this on Instagram about his late co-star, “Beautiful boy… RIP Jan-Michael Vincent. My first movie star co-star back in 1973. Remember him by watching Richard Brooks’s BITE THE BULLET with his “sister” Candice Bergen and Gene Hackman. Or John Milius’s BIG WEDNESDAY or with me in BUSTER & BILLIE.”

Imagine Freddy Kruger without his Fedora?
October 22nd, 2018 under Movies, Robert Englund. [ Comments: none ]


Freddy Kruger’s Fedora hat is as synonymous with him as his glove with knives and green and red striped sweater but almost did not happen.

Robert Englund told Yahoo Entertainment that Wes Craven wanted the Fedora but they wanted to try out some other types. They tried paperboy hats, baseball caps and they were not working for the actor. Therefore, he went to the director and showed him why his first choice was the right choice.

As we know he won out. Which is a good thing because a baseball cap would have struck out.

The Goldbergs book a killer guest for the Halloween episode
September 21st, 2018 under Robert Englund, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]


When The Goldbergs ended last season, they got Rick Moranis to reprise his role of Dark Helmut from Spaceballs. This season, they have another 1980somthing legend reprising his role in disguise for Halloween. One that has been haunting our nightmares since 1984. Of course, it is Robert Englund, but you probably know him as Freddy Krueger.

The ABC sitcom broke the news today, and I am so excited because I love the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. But I am surprised that the real Adam F. Goldberg went there because yesterday he tweeted this about Englund retiring from the role, “NO! There’s only one Freddy! Robert Englund can’t retire! Elm Street 3 scared the CRAP out of me when I was a kid. I was so terrified I slept in the hallway for a week, but then became a superfan. Someone has to do something to keep the nightmares alive!” To me, 3 was the best one and so not scary. I laughed at some of the kills like the girl who got her chance to be in TV and the roach motel girl. So funny.

It is not about me, it about another great get for The Goldbergs. Although, why is it whenever these actors reprise their characters on the show, they declare they will never do them again? Things that make you go hmmmm? Oh, wait that is a song from the ’90somthing.

Anyways, The Goldbergs pays homage to Sixteen Candles for Adam’s 16th birthday next Wednesday on ABC.
