In 1988, DJ Jazzy Jeff (AKA Jeff Townes) and The Fresh Prince (aka Will Smith) released the single “A Nightmare on My Street” – a song clearly meant to exist within the world of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. There was only one problem: the song wasn’t officially licensed by New Line Cinema, who own the Elm Street rights. As a result, a music video for the song had to be destroyed before being released. The general public has never seen a single frame from this long lost video…until now.

Before the summer break, the ABC comedy series The Goldbergs got a visit from a certain big-headed parody of Darth Vader in an episode that paid homage to Spaceballs, complete with a voice cameo from Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet himself. Now the show that waxes nostalgic about the 1980s will be paid a visit by an icon from the horror genre just in time for Halloween.
Robert Englund, who has portrayed the sharp-gloved, severely burned dream stalker Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, will reprise the famous role in the Halloween-themed episode coming this October. Read More »

Well, those retro designs for action figures are being brought back for a new line of figures from Funko called Savage World.
