The Goldbergs Freddy Krueger Episode

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 »

Nightmare on Elm Street reboot

Freddy Krueger hasn’t haunted audience’s nightmares in a while. The last time the character graced the screen was in the abysmal 2010 remake. And it’s been even longer since we saw the true Freddy, as played by Robert Englund. It’s doubtful Englund will ever return to the role at this point, but the actor recently revealed a pretty great Nightmare on Elm Street reboot idea of his own.

Robert Englund

Today in slightly depressing but inevitable news: Robert Englund, the actor who made dream murderer Freddy Krueger immortal, says he’s too old to ever play the character again. Time marches on for all of us, and it seems age has caught up with Mr. Englund to the point where slipping on his razor glove and tattered Christmas sweater is no longer a possibility.

Cult of Chucky Blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

It’s time for another physical media round-up! Look, I get it – you’re trying to declutter, you don’t want a bunch of Blu-ray discs all over your place. “Why buy a physical copy when I can just stream everything?” you might ask. Maybe I’m crazy, but I still think there’s something sacred about physical media. To be able to have the film you want when you want it, no hassle – unless you consider getting up and popping a disc into a player to be a hassle, in which case you’re just being lazy. It’s worth remembering that not every movie is available to stream. And even things that currently are streaming always stand the risk of expiring. That’ll never happen with your physical media.

This week on Blu-ray, there’s a sequel to the longest running horror franchise, a sequel to the lamest running Disney franchise, an existential haunted house movie and the directorial debut of Freddy Krueger. These are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Nightmares in the Makeup Chair

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.

Inception on Elm Street

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 »
