Hollywood Dreams and Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story

The highly-anticipated documentary celebrating the legacy and career of one our generation’s most beloved horror icons, the legendary Robert Englund.


From the makers of ‘Pennywise: The Story of IT’ and ‘RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop’ comes an all-new special collector’s edition Blu-Ray packed full of exciting bonus material, celebrating the career of 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 England’s true power as a character actor in the years since Freddy’s cinematic birth.
