Killers come and killers go, but there’s never been a horror movie villain like Freddy Krueger, and there’s never been a horror movie star like Robert Englund.
The original incarnation of the wildly popular Nightmare on Elm Street series ran for eight movies over three decades, from 1984 to 2003. It was a cultural phenomenon born from a partnership between two men: writer-director Wes Craven, who passed away Sunday at the age of 76, and his fiery star Robert Englund, who played the knife-gloved tormenter of teens, Freddy Krueger. In 2014, Yahoo Movies sat down with Englund for a lengthy chat about his work on the Nightmare films, which you can watch in two parts above and below.
Over the course of his four-decade career, horror maestro Wes Craven dreamed up some of the defining scary movies of the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. Starting with the 1981 Craven-produced TV movie, Kent State — based on a slice of U.S. history that’s almost as terrifying as one of his cinematic nightmares — the writer, director, and producer built a lengthy television résumé, culminating in MTV’s current series, Scream, based on the seminal horror franchise Craven unleashed upon the world in 1996. After directing the 1985 TV movie, Chiller, for CBS, the network invited Craven back to launch this rebooted version of Rod Serling’s classic sci-fi anthology series.
