Englund Pitching Freddy

"If I had an Eli Roth budget I would have cast different actors to play Freddy for every potential victim,” Englund said. “Because Freddy is only alive in the imagination of his future victim. They would talk about it at a slumber party or in a locker room at school, or on the bus going home. All we know about this Fred Krueger is he wears a hat, wears a red and green striped sweater and has a clawed hand. That’s the specifics. So it could be a red and green cardigan for one Freddy. It could be an old tattered baseball cap for another Freddy. Freddy could be tall, he could be short, he could be overweight, he could be muscular. Every one of the victims could have a different Freddy they imagined. And you could haunt them with that Freddy.”

“And then at the end, it would be the ultimate victim and we see Freddy peel [his face] open and maybe it’s yours truly revealed. And it’s the essence of Freddy.”

I think I love Robert Englund.
And I definitely LOVE this concept for bringing Freddy back.

There’s something about the nightmare series that screams to be remade, and remade, and remade. The sequels don’t tire the franchise, in my opinion. This was a fantastic idea on Englund’s part! Hope it catches on. I’d be sad knowing Wes Craven won’t be a part of it, but Englund’s blessing is close enough.

Did you watch the clip at the end of the article with him being interviewed in the 80’s? I thought it was cute. He totally charmed that news journalist. Hah!

Ommmggg...Yes. i totally wanna see Freddy pullin up in a green/red stripey Tardis wearing a long (Tom Baker lonnnnng) green/red stripey scarf. HAHAHHA. not sure..but, i don't think Freddy as strangled anyone yet. idk.

Eli & Robert were just on the History of Horror panel together. i'm sure Eli would LOVE to help a Master of Horror make his dreams come true.<3

Robert Englund. is such a FUN person to meet. He's soooooo charismatic & SMART. you can talk to that dude about anything. he's got an opinion on Everything!!! he's sassy & still sweet/affectionate at the same time. LOVE him.
