Everyone’s favorite Freddy Krueger, Mr. Robert Englund is wearing the famed glove once again for a new documentary titled ‘Nightmares in the Makeup Chair’.
Robert Englund takes fans on an exciting, funny, and emotional journey through his years as Freddy Krueger
with stories and anecdotes, all while paying tribute to the legacy of Wes Craven. Join Robert Englund as he meets fans as Freddy, while he is interviewed in full Freddy Makeup by Horror Host Svengoolie (Rich Koz), and as he shares his memories and insights on Freddy Krueger and the Nightmare on Elm Street series.
Robert Englund says “’NIGHTMARES IN THE MAKEUP CHAIR’ is my love letter to the Nightmare on Elm Street series and to practical makeup. I’ ve always been in awe of the multi- talented makeup effects artists. From sketching to sculpting, they realize the design. Then to the fine precision of the molding and the manufacturing of the makeup appliances which are nearly paper thin. And then, the application process where I sit in the makeup chair and I become their living canvas as they glue me in and paint the appliances. This documentary not only captures their talent, but I think it might inspire a new generation of practical effects artists. I was happy to become Freddy once again to share the makeup process with the fans”.
You’ll enter the makeup room and see the entire process as special makeup effects artist Robert Kurtzman transforms Robert Englund into Freddy Krueger once again! Coming in 2017. Visit www.FreddyDoc.com for details. Check out the new trailer below!
