One of the biggest horror icons to ever haunt your nightmares is Robert Englund, who has long played the role of Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise. Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment has now announced the home release of the documentary Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story.



From the makers of Pennywise: The Story of IT and the movie RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop comes an all-new documentary celebrating the legacy and career of one of 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 realization of Frankenstein’s monster – Englund has firmly earned his place in the pantheon of horror movie legends.



The documentary features a host of horror icons including Robert Englund himself (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Freddy vs. Jason), as well as Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Inglorious Bastards, Hostel), Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Alien vs. Predator), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Tony Todd (Candyman, The Crow), and Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary). With further exclusive interviews with 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.



This unique and captivating portrait captures the full story of the man behind the glove, exploring his most iconic role and the depths of England’s true power as a character actor in the years since Freddy’s cinematic birth.
