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 Child, New 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!
