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.


Freddy Krueger might be invincible, but Robert Englund is not
May 18th, 2017 under Robert Englund, Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

You know how they tell actors to break a leg? Well Robert Englund accidentally took them literally because somehow he broke his foot. He didn’t say how he did it, so we are left to assume how. I will say he did it by tripping over all the bodies of the teenagers he killed because Freddy Krueger and him are the same person. Right?

I know his pain. Back when I was 20, I broke my foot in a car accident. Like him, I had an open cast. Unlike him I had kitten in heat with long claws showing by broken wing some love instead of dog kissing the booboo trying to make it feel better. His is cute and mine left me crying in pain.

Back to the dog licking his foot, how cute is to see one of the cinema’s scariest actors get some arforable care? It doesn’t make him seem so terrifying.

Here’s little tip to him, he will need those metal claws to get to those inevitable itches you can’t scratch. I wish I had them, instead I used one the sticks from those huge lollipops because those plastic knives on the A Nightmare on Elm Street glove do not do it. I tried it.
