From A Nightmare on Elm Street to Stranger Things, horror icon Robert Englund will celebrate his birthday on June 6 with the SCREAMBOX Original documentary Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story. Fans are encouraged to use the hashtag #RobertEnglundDay all day.
Robert Englund: The Freddy Krueger Icon
Directed by Gary Smart and Christopher Griffiths (Pennywise: The Story of IT, You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night), the film will also be available on Digital on June 6 via Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting before hitting Blu-ray on July 25.
A classically trained actor and director, Robert Englund has become one of the most revolutionary horror icons of our generation. Throughout his career, Englund starred in many well-known movies but shot to superstardom with his portrayal of supernatural serial killer Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
This intimate portrait captures the man behind the glove and features interviews with Englund, his wife Nancy, and such genre favorites as Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Lance Henriksen, Bill Moseley, Eli Roth, Lin Shaye, Heather Langenkamp, Mick Garris, Andrew Divoff, William Katt, Jeffrey Reddick, Corey Taylor, and more.
Bloody Disgusting and Beyond Fest will present an all-day Robert Englund marathon at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, CA, on May 13. The line-up includes Freddy vs. Jason, The Last Showing, Stay Hungry, and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, culminating with a free Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares screening followed by a Q&A with Englund.
Other Englund films streaming on SCREAMBOX in June alongside Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares include A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Mangler, Night Terrors, Galaxy of Terror, and The Funhouse Massacre.
