REMINDER! Robert Englund will officially say goodbye to Freddy Krueger at this July’s Flashback Weekend here in Chicago.
The official website announced that Englund, who will be appearing at the convention to sign autographs, will be donning his iconic Freddy makeup that made him famous.
The kicker is that there’s are photo packages with Englund while in character; this is seriously a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Robert Englund’s “Freddy Krueger” makeup will be designed and applied by FX master artist Robert Kurtzman in the same extensive process used in the A Nightmare On Elm Street films.
This one time only event is happening August 8, 2014. Get your tickets here! He will also be signing autographs (without makeup) Saturday and Sunday.
Flashback Weekend is a horror convention with a deeper initiative. Our philanthropic efforts are dedicated to the preservation of the American Drive-In. Flashback Weekend owns and operates the Midway Drive-In located in Dixon, IL to support the film industry and to present classic 35mm horror film festivals. For this reason, all net proceeds from Flashback Weekend and the Robert ENglund Freddy Krueger make-up photo-ops go to the preservation and operation of the Midway Drive-In, located in Dixon, IL.
