One of the most iconic names in horror, Robert Englund, is the subject of this wonderful celebratory documentary exploring his enormous legacy and career. While he will always be best known for his performances as malevolent nightmare spirit Freddy Krueger, this expansive doc shows he is so much more than the striped jumper and bladed glove.
From the makers of ‘Pennywise: The Story of IT’ and the upcoming widely-anticipated movie ‘RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop’ comes an all-new special collector’s edition Blu-Ray packed full of exciting bonus material, celebrating the legacy and career of one our generation’s most beloved horror icons, the legendary Robert Englund.
Shooting to super-stardom with his revolutionary portrayal of Freddy Krueger in the ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ franchise – a moment without doubt as visceral to the horror genre as Chaney’s werewolf or Karloff’s ground-breaking realisation of Frankenstein’s monster – Englund has firmly earned his place in the pantheon of horror movie legends. This unique and captivating portrait, featuring exclusive interviews with Englund himself, plus Lin Shaye, Eli Roth, Tony Todd and many of the star’s co-workers from projects including ‘Urban Legend’, ‘2001 Maniacs’, ‘976-EVIL’, ‘Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon’, ‘Wishmaster’, ‘V’, ‘Dead and Buried’,’ Phantom of the Opera’, and, of course, the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ movies, captures the full story of the man behind the glove, exploring not only his most iconic role but the depths of Englund’s true power as a character actor in the years since Freddy’s cinematic birth.
