Robert Englund will officially say goodbye to Freddy Krueger at this July’s Flashback Weekend here in Chicago.
The official website announced that Englund, who will be appearing at the convention to sign autographs, will be donning the iconic Freddy makeup that made him famous.
The kicker is that there are photo packages with Englund while in character; for fans of the series, this is seriously a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Robert Englund’s “Freddy Krueger” makeup will be designed and applied by FX master artist Robert Kurtzman in the same extensive process used in the A Nightmare On Elm Street films.
This one time only event is happening August 8, 2014. Get your tickets here!
Flashback Weekend is a horror convention with a deeper initiative. Our philanthropic efforts are dedicated to the preservation of the American Drive-In.
