It’s the end of an era. The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is the namesake of our website, and it’s most prized possession–Robert Englund–has decided to retire his Freddy face.
At Flashback Weekend in Rosemont, IL. drew huge crowds to see Freddy in the flesh, for one last time. Many lucky fans were even fortunate enough to score a picture with him.
Englund was insistent on not wearing the entire Freddy costume, saying that the hat would affect the lighting, and that he didn’t want to look like just another Freddy impersonator.
Famous makeup artist Robert Kurtzman (Army of Darkness, Spawn, Thir13en Ghosts) applied the makeup, saying he based the makeup on NOES 2,3, and 4, mostly regarded by many of us as the best years of Freddy’s famous scars.
