It looks like Robert Englund is not quite done haunting our dreams. Entertainment Weekly reports that Mr. Englund will don the burnt-flesh makeup once again to portray the iconic Freddy Krueger horror role. Englund had portrayed the nightmare slasher in the original classic film A Nightmare on Elm Street as well as the seven sequels that are part of the original franchise’s timeline. He also portrayed the character for the “Freddy’s Nightmares” television show, which ran for three seasons in the late 1980s. Despite hinting over the years that his time as Freddy was done, the actor will be the focus of a new documentary entitled Nightmares in the Makeup Chair, directed by Mike Kerz.
As we celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the revolutionary horror-film franchise, “Scream,” we remember that, sadly, the iconic Wes Craven is no longer with us to usher in our new favorite movies. Entertainment Tonight recently interviewed Neve Campbell and Kevin Williamson to reflect on the franchise’s success. Naturally, the potential for another sequel was discussed.
In the interview, Williamson said “Wes and I, when we were starting Scream 4, we had plans for Scream 5 and 6….. Now without Wes, I feel like you have to sort of answer the questions of how and why, and I don’t know how to do it without Wes and I don’t know why to do it.” read more
The MTV Scream television series’ days are numbered. While the second season was arguably more watchable than the first season, it still wasn’t great (for every clever concept, like the “school lockdown” episode, there was something nearly unwatchable like the psychedelic never ending house party). The dip in ratings along with the radio silence about upcoming content led to rampant speculation about the fate of the series. When the Halloween Special was announced, some news sources mistakenly reported that the series would be finished after the special aired. Now that we know that Season Three will consist of just six final episodes, the revolving door of showrunners have been tasked with quickly wrapping up a series that never quite got off the ground. read more
