Robert Englund Hosting All-Weekend ‘Elm Street’ Marathon On El Rey

Wes Craven

Curl up and relax on the couch… BUT DON’T FALL ASLEEP!

It’s become an annual tradition for Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Nightmare On Elm Street marathon, and this year they’re going even bigger and better: they’re celebrating all weekend long! The annual “Rip Your Heart Out” marathon kicked off earlier this morning, and it will continue straight into the wee hours of Monday morning.

The first five installments in the original franchise will play several times over throughout the course of the weekend, and what’s especially cool about the marathon is that many episodes of the spinoff series “Freddy’s Nightmares” are also part of the fun. The show is STILL not officially available on home video, and it’s incredibly rare that you’ll ever find it playing on TV.

Oh and the whole thing is hosted by Robert Englund!!

Check out the full schedule below.

    Freddy’s nightmares needs a shoutfactory blu-ray like ASAP.

    I wish El Rey didn’t censor stuff.

    • bastardjackyll

      I don’t think they censored all of the movies because they showed the full scene of Tina’s death and I definitely heard Kincaid fire off a “faggot” and “motherfucker”, and oh yeah, Joey saw boobs.

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah why watch the elm st if they’re going to be censored on this channel? If your a horror fan like me just pull out your blue rays

    • Erick Lorinc

      Aside from the first movie, the blu-rays have worse quality than the dvds. They’re darker and cropped weirdly.

      • Chris Genth

        Really, I don’t seem to have that problem, I’ve got the box set

  • Joe Smith

    Don’t forget, past 7pm central in uncensored till morning!
