Happy Birthday, Freddy Krueger!
Actually, it’s Robert Englund, the guy who played Freddy Krueger in 8 Nightmare on Elm Street movies, who turns 65 today. So we’re giving Freddy some dap.
By ModernMan Editors
Robert Englund, best known for playing unapologetic serial killer and fedora wearer Freddy Krueger in Nightmare on Elm Street movies, turns 65 years old today. Englund played Krueger, whose signatures were a glove made of razor blades and a complexion made for industrial-strength moisturizer, in eight films. He was replaced by the equally odd looking Jackie Earle Haley in the 2010 franchise reboot, but we’re not going to focus on a bummer like that on Englund’s birthday. Instead, we’re honoring his legacy with clips that remind us of some of Freddy’s overlooked good qualities.
