From Publishers Weekly

Oct 12, 2009 – The actor behind A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger recounts his early years in theater and Hollywood before hitting it big as the razor-fingered killer. Intent on pursuing a stage career, California native Englund went to Cal State and Michigan's Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he studied classical theater. After being inspired by Martin Scorsese's debut film, Boxcar Bertha, Englund headed to Hollywood and soon landed small roles alongside stars like Henry Fonda, Burt Reynolds and Sally Field. But it wasn't until Wes Craven offered the role of Freddy Krueger, a sadistic murderer who haunted victims' dreams, that Englund broke into cult stardom. He recalls in vivid detail the hundreds of hours spent in the makeup chair for the film and its six sequels, most recently 2004's hit Freddy vs. Jason, where Krueger is resurrected from hell and battles Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th franchise. Englund also appeared in the acclaimed 1984 miniseries V and 1995's The Mangler, from Tobe Hooper, director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. While readers who didn't grow up with the Elm Street films may be a bit lost, Englund's memoir will appeal to those who still can't shake Freddy from their nightmares.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding!

This is an excellent book for not only Freddy Krueger fans, or Robert Englund fans, but for anyone that loves good stories of Hollywood. Robert does a great job with keeping the flow going from one great tale to the next keeping the reader interested and curious to what comes next. I loved it! I highly recommend it.

Must read if you're a Krueger fan!

I was very inspired by Robert by how much passion he put into his work. Robert was and is much more than Freddy Krueger. If you read this book you will understand what I am saying!!

Great for Freddy fans!!

I thought it was a fantastic book for Freddy fans or Robert Englund fans in general. He did a great job of telling stories, was very quick to the point and was funny as hell. I'd recommend this book to anyone. Great book, great man.
