Residents of Illinois - and the rest of the globe - listen up! At the beginning of August, Robert Englund will be attending Flashback Weekend in Chicago wearing his full Freddy Krueger makeup "one final time!" That's an opportunity you just can't resist.

Per the convention's official site: "Flashback to Elm Street and have your photo taken with the man of your dreams, iconic horror actor Robert Englund in the make-up of his famous character, Freddy Krueger, one final time. Robert Englund’s “Freddy Krueger” make up will be designed and applied by FX master artist Robert Kurtzman in the same extensive process used in the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films."

Of course, to get your pic taken with Freddy will cost you an arm and a leg (he wouldn't have it any other way), but it's worth it if this is indeed the last time he'll be donning the legendary makeup. Head over HERE for further details. Flashback Weekend runs from August 8-10 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel.

This is terrific news, and hats off to Robert for doing this!
My only concern is that he will overdo the goofiness, and that a talk show element will be cheesy. I think a smarter idea, which will give the fans more bang for the price they're paying, would be for Robert to do a scene with some actors, where he pretends to kill them on stage. A small set could be built, a dream clinic maybe, with everything running smoothly until Freddy emerges, surprising everyone and making them realize that

A small set could be built, a dream clinic maybe, with everything running smoothly until Freddy emerges, surprising everyone and making them realize that they are in a dream. He takes out everyone there on the set! The joke is that the Flashback audience is told that they too are sleeping, and then the photo ops happen. That would be very clever, and would act as sort of a final scene, which we could watch, similar to a moment in a play. Seeing Robert act campy while chatting to some host, will only bring back his cheesy moments when he did the same thing while promoting FVSJ. Robert is a horror legend, and a hell of a nice man in real life, but I hope he'll bring a darker Freddy to the Flashback weekend event this time, to end on an old school note! Hope everything goes well, and that there is plenty of air conditioning inside of the hotel lol, as wearing the makeup could get rather hot. Robert is the coolest!!!
