This past Friday Robert Englund once again attended the Flashback Weekend in Chicago, only this time it was a nightmare of a visit.
Englund, best known for his role in A Nightmare On Elm Street, donned the famous Freddy Krueger make-up “one final time.” Effects legend Robert Kurtzman created the final look, which gave super fans the chance to take a personal photo with Englund (see my embarrassing shot above), with proceeds going to charity (to save a local drive-in theater).
Fox 32 Chicago was granted exclusive video coverage of the event, and turned in the following report from the massive annual horror convention that leads into the Wizard World convention in two weeks.
Englund chats about how he feels now that he’s officially saying goodbye, only he does so while rocking the infamous Krueger make-up. This was a once in a lifetime event that won’t soon be forgotten.
