One of the things I’ve always loved about Robert Englund is that he seems to genuinely love being Freddy Krueger. Some actors grow jaded when they find themselves associated with a single character and their bitterness radiates in every interview (and sometimes in the performances themselves). But Englund? Englund seems seems happy to be there, happy to endure the prosthetics, and happy to have created a character that has resonated with so many people all over the world.
While Englund will most likely never headline a Nightmare on Elm Street movie ever again (and the remake may have killed the series forever), he’s becoming the iconic horror movie killer at least one more time for the new documentary Nightmares in the Makeup Chair, which will pay tribute to the practical effects artists who have brought the character to life over the years.

Back in the fall of 2007 a comic book miniseries debuted which pitted Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees and Ash Williams against each other. After that, there were rumblings of possibly seeing a film adaptation of Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, but as the years went on, nothing ever came of those talks. So what happened?
With the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead currently running on Starz, and a third season already ordered, Bruce Campbell recently participated in a Reddit AMA where he was asked about the potential for a Freddy vs Jason vs Ash movie. Find out what the actor had to say about the matter after the jump. Read More »

Most of the time, the deleted scenes that end up on the cutting room floor of any given movie don’t bring anything substantial to the movie, hence why the scene was cut to begin with. However, in the case of a sparsely seen deleted scene from the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, some new information is revealed that changes the game a little bit.
In an extended version of the scene where Nancy Thompson learns how her mother Marge and some of the other parents took matters into their own hands by killing Freddy Krueger, even more information would have been revealed that makes the nightmare stalker’s recent killing streak more personal than random.

Today begins another round of Texas Frightmare Weekend, the annual horror convention that has been going for 11 years now. This year is a special one for horror fans, because it marks the 20th anniversary of Wes Craven‘s genre redefining Scream, which will be getting a special screening at the event. And with it comes a special new Mondo print paying tribute to the slasher.
But those aren’t the only Mondo goodies that Texas Frightmare attendees will be able to get their hands on. There will also be new prints for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Jaws, The Conjuring and White Zombie. Check out all of the Mondo Texas Frightmare prints below. Read More »
We don’t typically write about movie swag on /Film, although I’ll often tweet about some of the cooler things that get sent to the /Film offices to promote upcoming films and television shows. Today I received a package from Warner Bros. Pictures with swag promoting their upcoming film Keanu, a comedy film movie from Key and Peele. If you haven’t yet watched the trailer for this film, go do so now.
When I opened the box I knew I had to feature it on the site. The box contained a plush of the cat at the center of the film, Keanu, complete with his do-rag and gold chain. But thats not all, Warner Bros. produced a full-size calendar featuring Keanu reenacting scenes from popular movies. That’s the part I really wanted to show you as it’s ridiculous, cute and awesome. Before the Oscars they released a set of movie posters spoofing this year’s Academy Award nominees. This takes it further because they’ve gone to the lengths of elaborate photo shoots, rather than fast and dirty Photoshops. Hit the jump to take a look at some of the Keanu movie parodies featured in this Keanu calendar.

Thanks to the twisted mind of the recently passed horror icon Wes Craven, we’ll forever have Freddy Krueger to haunt our nightmares. And while one of the Nightmare on Elm Street films finally decided to have Freddy’s victims go out of their way to fight back in their dreams, only one dream expert has the power to stop him once and for all: Leonardo DiCaprio.
More specifically, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb, the character from Christopher Nolan’s dreamscape action thriller Inception. A trailer mash-up entitled Inception on Elm Street makes Cobb the dream gatekeeper that Freddy Krueger has to get by first before he came leap from our dreams into the real world. It makes for a rather intriguing concept. Read More »
