Robert Englund Reveals His ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Sequel Idea

One of the great things about Robert Englund is that he NEVER seems to get sick of talking about Freddy Krueger or the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Ever since he first brought the iconic dream demon to the screen back in 1984, we’re pretty sure that Englund hasn’t done a single interview where he wasn’t asked about the series, and yet, he’s still as genuinely excited about all things Elm Street all these years later. A true horror icon, if there ever was one.

Speaking with Florida Today prior to this past weekend’s Spooky Empire (which was cancelled due to the impending threat of Hurricane Matthew), Englund dug back through his Elm Street memories to talk about set experiences and his favorite one-liners, but what really caught our eye was his pitch for a new installment in the series. The interviewer asked Englund what he would’ve changed about the franchise had he been in charge, and he excitedly revealed his concept.

If I was in control of my own Nightmare on Elm Street movie I have an idea I would have liked to see,” said Englund. “I thought it would be great if the children of previous victims, or just kids who grew up hearing stories about Freddy Krueger, were each haunted by their own version of Freddy Krueger. Kids who grew up hearing stories about this Freddy Krueger guy and the awful things he did envisioned him in their own way, and that is the version that begins to haunt them.”

Some people may picture him as stout, another might envision him as tall and thin, another with a different hat, or a different sweater,” he continued. “He could have different gloves, or even a glove with small razor blades as referred to in the first movie. It would be neat to see very different interpretations of Freddy Krueger based on the child’s vision of who or what Freddy was to them. After all, each person’s subconscious would picture him in a totally different way.

An interesting idea, to say the least, and one that would actually be perfect for a Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. The biggest problem the franchise faces, going forward, is that it’s pretty much impossible for any actor on the planet to fill Robert Englund’s massive shoes, so the idea of different actors playing very different interpretations of Freddy Krueger is nothing if not intriguing. Without Englund in the role, there’s no sense even trying to bring Freddy back, so why not go in a completely new direction and do something wildly different?

What do you think? Is Englund onto something here?

    I dig it.

  • Jesuswept669

    actuall, thats a really good idea

  • ALearnedDoctor

    This is actually a great idea and also works well with the mythology fleshed out in Dream Warriors and Freddy vs Jason.
    If people don’t fear Freddy he has no power so the more he is thought of and feared within each different person he becomes more powerful. So that could look like and be something different for everyone.
    It’s also why I think if they were to go with a complete reboot it could be interesting to see it set way way back in the past like the 1800’s. Even earlier if they want to explore the story and set it in a time when folklore, legends and myths really could set in in communities.

    • Rudy Alapag

      I believe that can go that way. Definitely. Another destination. Why not.

  • Love this idea. Perhaps the victims need to figure out the true story behind Freddy to uncover and conront his true form (Robert Englund) in the final act. I’d watch that!

  • Trippy Leatherface

    Robert Englund is replaceable…

    • Matt

      Not really.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      That’s what they thought while making Nightmare 2 and also what they thought while making the remake.. Was he in fact replacable? NO

      • Trippy Leatherface

        He’s replaceable get over yourself

        • darklordofgorgoroth

          Uhm, no he’s not. Stop deluding yourself

          • Justin Miller

            He is replaceable, you just need a good vision from a great director with a cast and crew who actually care about making a good Nightmare on Elm Street movie, not just making money. How about James Wan as director, I’m sure he would make something NOES fans would love.

          • darklordofgorgoroth

            James Wan is a hack

          • Trippy Leatherface

            Yes he is

  • KingLeo

    What if we didn’t see Freddy in the dreams at all. Freddy could be a force like death who sends dreams to the teens instead of an physical entity.

  • David Rawlings

    How about this:

    “Freddy Krueger has become a forgotten legend. No-one’s thought of him in years. A group of college kids discover the legend and create a “community” of “fans”. They all want to meet Freddy, to challenge him in their dreams. None of them are scared, they’ve become too desensitized over the years. So they take sleeping pills in mass groups, and all go into dreams together to fight and kick Freddy’s arse. He’s become a joke.

    Until one night, when one college kid get’s too cocky and Freddy get’s the upper hand.”

    THIS IS MY IDEA!! YOU CAN’T HAVE IT!!!!

    • Justin Miller

      That seems like a mixture of Freddy vs Jason(The forgetting about aspect) and Rings(A community of kids wanting to see him)

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        The forgetting about aspect.. That’s always bugged me about the shaky continuity of the Nightmare franchise, which I still love.. How was freddy able to ener the dreams of the kids in part 1 6 2 without the kids having any prior knowledge of him? 😉

        • I think it’s safe to say that 2 plays way outside the canon. They don’t really follow any of the rules set by the first film. I think New Line was still figuring out what they had on their hands with that one.

          • darklordofgorgoroth

            Yup. They actually casted a stuntman in a rubber mask and was halfway through production when Bob Shaye ordered them to bring Englund back, despite Englund asking for a higher salary. And then they reshot all of the Freddy scenes..
            If they hadn’t done that, part 2 would most certainly have been the last movie in the series

          • Saturn

            Although much maligned, I actually consider Freddy’s Revenge as one of my favourite of the franchise. Much better than anything that followed Dream Master, including New Nightmare.
            Although I do have a soft spot for FvJ.

        • Amy

          They do have at least a little knowledge of him, Nancy tells Tina that her dream is very “1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you”. They may not have realized who they were singing about when they jumped rope as kids, but he was part of their subconscious before the film began.

    • Saturn

      I do remember reading somewhere that someone (it may have been Del Toro, iirc) actually pitched an idea of an Elm St movie where the kids did go after Freddy in the dreamworld, with the plan of just kicking his arse.

      • Yeah it was Peter Jackson’s pitch for Freddy’s Dead.

        • Saturn

          You’re correct.

    • Halloween_Vic

      I really like this idea actually!!!

    • Cool idea but that was the exact pitch Peter Jackson had for Freddy’s Dead. :/ I think it would make a cool movie though.

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        Nightmare is not an action movie..

        • That is true, but Jackson made plenty of films before LOTR (which I’m not a huge fan of) that weren’t action/fantasy. His idea would have been a bit more fantastical but I think it could’ve been creepy to see Freddy start out as weak only to regain his strength and start picking the kids off one by one. It’s no more “out there” than some of the dream powers adopted by the kids in Dream Warriors…in my opinion anyway.

          • darklordofgorgoroth

            I’m a huge fan of Jackson’s splatter-comedy movies. Could he have been able to pull of Nightmare? We’ll never know for sure by now. Pity, it would probably have been better than “Freddy’s Dead”

          • Saturn

            It would have been interesting to see his take on the franchise while he was still in his “Bad Taste/Braindead/Meet The Feebles” mode.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      This is absolutely NOT your idea. This is exactly the scenario Peter Jackson wrote in his rejected script for Nightmare 6. Liar!

      • David Rawlings

        Well, excuuuuse me, Princess. I wasn’t aware of PJ’s script.

        • darklordofgorgoroth

          No need for rudeness 😉 But what you wrote was word for word what Peter Jackson presented….

  • Grimphantom

    I like the idea also would be fun if the show different atmospheres of the dream world, showing different twisted scenarios that you can only see in dreams and what the Remake failed to handle

  • fannypack aficionado

    Englund or gtfo

    • Matt

      I totally agree that Robert should return. But if he doesn’t, maybe this could be the scenario for a film starring Kevin Bacon.

      • fannypack aficionado

        Oh yeah, I completely forgot he showed interest. I’d be up for that!

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    I guess it’s better than the remake premise, though I did enjoy the inclusion of the micro-naps concept. Would be cool to see them keep that and do some intriguing stuff with it.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      The micro-naps concept comes from the original part 1. It’s freaking HIGHLIGHTED in the script, even. Platinum Dunes simply stole the idea and presented it as their own.
      No micro-naps are never mentioned by name in the original series, but that doesn’t mean they’re not present. Try rewatching the original series again, the micro-naps certainly aren’t difficult to spot! 😉

      • Saturn

        Indeed.
        Nancy in the classroom for one.

  • Matt

    Come on Robert, pitch this idea. Pull a few strings. You could still play Freddy. If they use great CGI, you wouldn’t have to worry about the stunt work. Come on, Robert, make this happen!

    • THGrimm

      Seriously, I don’t get it. He could easily write this up himself or certainly knows a great person to do it. I’ll do it for him 😉 Seriously, though, why does he come off as powerless to take the series into his own hands!

      • Amy

        probably contracts and creative rights, studios tend to own all rights (or the majority) of everything pertaining to the films they produce, if he doesn’t get along with an exec, if someone offers more money for the right to work with the story, etc. the company can not allow him to produce a film that is related to the series. I think it would be a foolish choice, the fan response alone would likely be overwhelming. There is also that he is known for his acting, not his writing, directing or producing efforts (if he has done any of those things).

  • Sir Sigh-A-Lot

    So pretty much do what was done from 3 onwards? I have 2 concepts; one set around the mental institution he was conceived in and the other follows a junior journalist that uncovers the elm street murders after a 30 year cover up. So much could still be done with this franchise with a little imagination and love for it. I disagree with the comment that nobody but Robert could play him.

    • Saturn

      Indeed, it could start off with the journalist being a copycat killer whose deaths work as some kind of “food” for the return of the real Freddy.
      It could also be hinted that the journalist had been dreaming of Freddy his/herself, after discovering the cover up, and was being used in such a manner to bring about the resurrection.

  • The Drucifer

    I always wanted a prequel to 3 about a girl in a coma. We would watch a weakend Freddy slowly regain his powers. Nancy’s house is a beacon of hope,a safe house, for the littlest on elm street and in the process of the film we would see it corrupted and turned into Freddy’s house. The dreamscape would almost be a carnival funhouse during the day but as night falls and more dreamers enter Freddy is taking control again and it becomes what we know it to be.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      A little bit off topic, but.. Why didn’t they do anything with the coma patients in Freddy vs Jason? The ones that was obviously still dreaming about Freddy?? That’s a plothole the size of Texas, which also contradicts the entire premise of the movie. Also, it’s an utterly wasted opportunity

      • The Drucifer

        I fixated on the coma idea way early as a fan. How scary is it when you can’t wake up?

        • darklordofgorgoroth

          It would be incredible!

        • Matt

          Wouldn’t they be easy pickings, fish in a barrel?

          • The Drucifer

            Thus placing it at a time when Freddy is weakend, like after the first film when Nancy stripped him of his power,could make for an interesting premise. We watch him grow ,we watch them fight. Make it a battle of power; his world, their dreams. At the very least make it different and interesting.

          • darklordofgorgoroth

            Yes, they would. Also, it utterly invalidates the plot of the movie about Freddy “being forgotten, since no-one dreams about him anymore”. Uhm…

  • Halloween_Vic

    Robert englund and Kevin Bacon are the only ones I can see as Freddy pulling this off. Let’s make it happen!!!!

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      Even though the remake was bad, Jackie was actually kinda good. When he was shrouded in darkness. The rest of the movie? Not so much. There’s no need to replace him, just retcon the stupid “re-imagined” plot.

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        And of course, re-design his make-up

  • Brilliant, have Robert Englund direct the next Nightmare movie. That way, Freddy will still be there in spirit and he can guide the next actor(Jackie Earle Haley or someone else).

  • Tigernan Quinn

    The Dr. Strange trailers make me think that an Elm Street movie that takes place entirely in the Dreaming would be incredible.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      Like part 1?

  • darklordofgorgoroth

    Here’s an idea; What about “Nightmare – 30 years later”? Retcon everything after part 1 and continue with Heather’s Nancy all grown up, being a parent herself and Freddy (Robert) coming back.
    You know, what “Halloween H20” did?

    • jsmoltz29

      Not opposed to this idea

    • Matt

      You know, what “Halloween H20” did – that’s the reason I don’t like H2O (or Resurrection). I mean no offense to you, but for good or for bad, the sequels DID happen.

      • Saturn

        Indeed, with a decent script and explanation of why Laurie faked her death, but left Jamie behind (perhaps she’d been taken off of her while Laurie was institutionalised at some stage) the whole cult of Thorn angle can be reintroduced, and tied into the events of H3. Except of course that pesky scene of Halloween that is being shown on the tv during that one scene….
        But again, modern tech could just change what is being show on the screen anyway to tie it all up.

        • Matt

          Interesting…

        • oh_riginal

          I don’t know, I see Halloween as a franchise that has several of its own alternate timelines.

          Timeline 1: Halloween 1 and 2. It ends with Myers and Loomis dead. The end. Simple, good, nothing more to see here.

          Timeline 2: H1, H2, H4, H5, and H6. This is where the Thorn storyline eventually comes into play. Believe it or not, it has its fans, and they are probably still bummed that it didn’t get resolved fully.

          Timeline 3: H1, H2, H20, H: Resurrection. It’s similar to the first timeline, except it… continued. If it were just H20, it might not have been so bad, but Resurrection taints this timeline something awful.

          Timeline 4? This might be a real thing if rumors are true that they will be continuing off the first movie only.

          However it goes, you have to admit that this franchise is somewhat unique in how it gives the viewer choices. It’s like a multi-film version of a choose-your-own-path book. Texas Chainsaw Massacre sorta does this now, and the Superman movie franchise pre-Man of Steel does this as well. The Alien franchise may do this too, if they can get Alien 5 off the ground.

          So Nightmare could do this too. I don’t see why not.

          • Saturn

            TCM has done it from the beginning (excluding the remake/prequel).

            TCM 2 was a direct sequel to the original.
            TCM 3 was a direct sequel to the original, which ignored TCM 2.
            TCM 4 was a direct sequel to the original, which ignored TCM 2 and 3.

            Then we got Texas Chainsaw – which again, was a direct sequel to the original, ignoring 2,3 and 4!

            TCM has an even more complicated multiverse system than the Phantasm movies!

          • THGrimm

            Touche! I totally dig that concept.

          • THGrimm

            I love this! I kind of have been doing this myself for some
            time now. Just because I don’t always like all of the sequels to various
            franchises I just collect the ones I do like and accept it as one thing.

          • darklordofgorgoroth

            What about simply Halloween 1, 2 & H20?

          • Saturn

            TBH I reckon they would have to leave Resurrection in that timeline, as I don’t suppose Jamie Lee will come back again (but who knows – she seems to be having a blast with Scream Queens, so…..) – I wonder if Hartnett would return?
            I remember reading that a sequel was planned where he was to return, to get revenge for his mother’s death.

            He (or another actor playing John) could take on the Dr Loomis style role – having tracked Michael back to Haddonfield, but no-body will listen that Michael has returned yet again.

            We could always have a twist at the end that it’s actually HE who has been doing the killing.
            No wait, Rob Zombie did that already.

            ARRRGH!!!

        • darklordofgorgoroth

          The Thorne cult is retarded and ruined any sense of mystery surrounding Michael Myers. H20 was right in retconning it

    • Jeremy Wade

      nancy died in the 3 film . they show her grave in dream masters along the the 3 that made it in dream warriors yet died in dream masters so that won’t work

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        Again..

        • Jeremy Wade

          i read it carefully this time. and that’s what happen in new nightmare .

    • Jeremy Wade

      if your going to use new nightmare . don’t because that was a film with in a film

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        Did you hear what I said? Retcon everything after part 1. nancy doesn’t die in part 1….

    • SpacemanSpliffz

      that’s pretty much the plot of new nightmare reversed though, isn’t it?

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        No

    • Saturn

      Or, if you want to keep the timeline somewhat in place, how about having a teenage girl start having nightmares about fighting Freddy,and winning. But knowing he’s coming back stronger – with the twist being that it is actually a reincarnation of Nancy who has to finally take out the Dream Master…..

      • Amy

        Nancy has to kill Alice?

        • Saturn

          Actually, good point – I meant Freddy (forgot all about Alice!).
          But yeah, why not have Nancy Vs Alice?

          • Amy

            That would be awesome, my money is on Alice!

          • Saturn

            It could really work – perhaps it’s set many years after the events of the original movies, and Alice has developed some kind of mental health problems, which is being diagnosed as schizophrenia, but in truth Freddy has started pulling strings again…..

          • Amy

            Nancy would have to replace Freddy in order to stay true to the storyline, she did die in Dream Warriors, or Freddy could take on Nancy’s appearance (ironically how he killed Nancy in Dream warriors). I think it would be much better a twist if it actually was Nancy taking up Freddy’s place.

          • Saturn

            It would be interesting if it turned out that Nancy was actually really fathered by Freddy – her mother had been raped by him, which was one of the major reasons she turned into an alcoholic – a secret that her non-biological father wanted to keep, to protect Nancy – so it was him who suggested ridding the town of Krueger…..

            But, because Freddy had (another) a daughter , he had some kind of access to the world, and the children of those who killed him.

          • Amy

            I was thinking about this, and here is another twist…Nancy had an older sibling who Freddy killed and Nancy was the reincarnation of that sibling. After being killed twice by Freddy her spirit turns bitter and takes Freddy’s place. It would put more explanation into why Nancy’s parents were part of the group that killed Freddy to begin with, giving them more motive (though rape is a great one) to be moved to vigilantism.
            The whole vigilante thing never made sense to me as Freddy had died prior to any of the teens being around to even recognize his name (as they would have if he had been caught and killed when they were young). All of the parents who lost children to him killed him and then moved on the best they could having more children to replace the ones they lost.
            Just a random thought I had, hope you like it!

    • Saturn

      I’d be happy with that as long as we got Fred Krueger again, and not Freddy.

  • Marky P

    Here’s an idea…why not we close the final chapter on Freddy and stop kidding ourselves another good Freddy movie will ever happen. It’s time to put this to bed for good.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      That’s not really fair. there are some pretty good fanfics out there that actually are better than the remake:

      Krueger – Taes from Elm Street

      The Confession Of fred Krueger

      Don’t Fall asleep

      A Nightmare On Elm Street – Trial By Fire

    • Horror Kingpin

      i totally feel you my man, but think i am 19 with new generations come the want for the old to be revived. We want freddy but the hell with all the remakes and terrible movie making we need a good one.

  • biohazardextreme

    When the original remake was announced, I pretty much said, “I hope they redesign Freddy completely, different sweater, different look, everything, because nobody can be the red and green striped Freddy that Robert Englund was.

    Of course now, with the better technology, I wouldn’t mind if they got Englund’s permission to use his likeness and made a CGI Freddy, or at least a CGI face that maybe Englund could voice over, or even someone who sounds like him. I wouldn’t be opposed to that, as long as we get that particular, iconic visage.

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      Redesign freddy completely?! Why not make a completely different movie under a different name then?

      • biohazardextreme

        Well yeah, in an ideal world, it wouldn’t have been rebooted in the first place.

  • Christopher Spike Torres

    Roberto Lombardi from the Krueger short films would be perfect to play the character on the big screen

    • THGrimm

      That guy’s awesome!

    • darklordofgorgoroth

      Or maybe Kevin Roach? Roberto Lombardi is perfect for “family man Freddy”, but Kevin Roach (from Confession Of Fred Krueger) is MUCH closer to Wes Craven’s Freddy.
      Fun fact; Freddy’s Dead retcons the entire series

  • FunkyMagurk

    Or maybe Robert Englund should just return for one last hurrah.

    • John Connor

      He did the last hurrah 8 times already.

      • FunkyMagurk

        He never got a proper last hurrah. Freddy’s Dead was garbage, New Nightmare (while good) was not a true Nightmare and Freddy vs Jason, well, you get it. He deserves to go out on a high note. He’s always been great, but he hasn’t had a legitimately good film to be in since Dream Warriors.

        • John Connor

          Well, then The Dream Warriors was the last hurrah for you. It ends there as it really was the end for some time until the 4th entry arrived.

          I thought Freddy Vs. Jason was wonderful and a helluva way to go out for both series.

        • I see New Nightmare as his last hurrah, I struggle to watch any of the films after Dream Warriors, they just got way too slapstick for my liking. I guess it’s all dependant on your own taste though. Like all the main slasher villains Freddy is such a great character but people are so desperate to make money from him they can’t find a decent film to put him in, haha.

    • Saturn

      Thing is, if he came back for one last time (again) we’d all be wanting him to come again for another “one last time”.

      It’s time to recast Freddy (or, give Haley another shot, but with a better script) and reboot the franchise. OUR Freddy is dead.
      The next generation need “their” Freddy.

      • FunkyMagurk

        He never got a proper last hurrah. Freddy’s Dead was garbage, New Nightmare (while good) was not a true Nightmare and Freddy vs Jason, well, you get it. He deserves to go out on a high note.

      • Alex

        Haley did a horrible job though .Kevin bacon would make a good Freddy though.he’s already said he was interested in playing fredddy

      • darklordofgorgoroth

        Tell that to my teenage kid and my younger siblings. All of them thought the remake sucked and the original was an instant hit 😉

        • Saturn

          Good job too – they have taste!

    • As amazing as that would be, you know that if Englund returns then Freddy will probably be bouncing off the walls dropping puns and innuendos all over the place

  • Evan3

    If I had an iconic character that will live on long after I’m gone, I’d never tire of talking about it either!

  • SpacemanSpliffz

    if it was done how vhs was done where each dream is an individual segment with an individual freddy, that would be interesting as hell to see.

    then in the end all the versions of freddy voltron together to become some freakazoid giant freddy that godzilla smashes. and also tokyo. because godzilla

    • Saturn

      With different director’s for each segment?
      I’d watch that.
      Especially if we got variations on Freddy (still being Freddy of course) from different cultures.
      I’d think that a decent Japanese version of Freddy would work, alongside perhaps some kind of Arabic Djinn version, a Mexican Day Of The Dead version could be cool too.

      So basically Freddy is terrorising kids globally.

  • Blade4693

    Interesting idea and it makes a lot of sense, kind of like how when you say “boogeyman” just about everybody has a different mental picture of what he would look like.

  • Dagon Cleo Macready

    Great idea – kind of like what they did with The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus after Heath Ledger died (bummer).
    My spin on it would be this – simply, Englund has to be the voice. All different actors, of varying shapes and sizes, but overdubbed with Englund’s vocals.

  • Glitchiee Glitch

    this would be a super great idea…though with the way movies are these days im sure they would find some way to totally FUCK it up.. oh how i would love to see robert play or even voice the character one last time 🙁

    • Saturn

      How about some kind of Anime style movie series.
      Robert wouldn’t have to wear the make up (this is what seems to be the main issue) anymore, and the writers could be really creative.

      Imagine the guys who did Vampire Hunter D doing an Elm St movie.

    I like the idea, but would have to be only relatives to previous victims and they have to either still live or have lived on Elm Street for them to be affected. Freddy’s whole revenge plot was to make all the residents of Elm Street suffer by killing their children and brothers/sisters their children etc, because they went vigilante on him and burnt him up and so on. For me the legend of Freddy would be fairly similar to the original story but as with all legends when they get retold people tend to add things to make them scarier so imagine those possibilities. Imagine Javier Botet as Freddy in some dreams with Englund’s voiceover. Shit, imagine Botet as Freddy dubbed with Englund’s voice in a remake (as I do believe the biggest thing holding him back was getting in/out of the make up everyday) Botet wearing the signature Freddy attire with the glove would add a new level of creepiness with the movements he makes.

      Even in the first one at the pool party, he indiscriminately kills a bunch of kids not all of whom are likely to live on the same street. In Freddy’s dead when Maggie Burroughs returns to Springfield there are no kids in the town at all, and as a logical assumption I don’t think there was one street devoted to families in the town. Also in the third movie at the hospital he effects not only Springfield residents but those they came into contact with. Geography seems not to matter, though he may need to regenerate in Springfield because he died there, but I am not sure about that either.

        Pool Party was in part Two… and It’s Springwood… And the idea is that he goes after the children of Elm Street. if these children happen to drag in their friends to face Freddy then they are targeted as well. It’s less about the actual street and more about the fact that Freddy is one bad dude

        I think you need to rewatch the series…. No offense

          None taken, it’s been at least 15 years since I have seen them.

    Now that is an interesting idea

    I want him to come back from freddy’s dead. If he died in real world, his soul will be in the dream…eternal life.

      He did, in Freddy vs Jason

  • I love ideas like this, that take something and completely reinvent it but without ruining it. New Nightmare was just as brilliant, but the remake was a total disaster. It’s a shame that they’d never go for an idea like this

    I would cast four different actors (Let’s go meta: Freddy’s glove has four razors, right?) for the main course of the movie and keep the glorious return of Englund for the climax.

    Sounds a lot like something they did with Batman. Doing an Elm Street version would be amazing– make it happen!
