Robert Englund in Freddy Make up one last time.. again?


Robert Englund attended August’s Flashback Weekend convention where he appeared in character as Freddy Krueger for the first time in over a decade. The appearance was marketed to be the final time he’d don the famous make up for a photo session with fans, which naturally made worldwide news.

Well its NOT the last time..

It seems this was a bit of a white lie as Englund is donning the makeup and glove one more time at London Film and Comic Con the weekend of July 17th 2015 with a special ‘Diamond Pass’ purchase.

The makeup will be applied by FX legend Robert Kurtzman (Dream ChildNew Nightmare), and only on Sunday will the special photo-op be offered.

The cost of this ‘last ever’ opportunity? Around $210, which is over $100 less than the Flashback ticket price.

Should Flashback fans be annoyed that meeting Robert in makeup wasn’t really the last ever time, is it all a Marketing ploy with plenty more appearances to come. Who knows, but one thing we do know is that Freddy is coming to town!
