Retro Slashers is celebrating the return of Freddy Krueger to the big screen with a week dedicated to the slasher icon. We’ll showcase some of the Freddy merchandise that popped up during the height of Freddy Mania, offer a mini review of the New Nightmare hitting theaters April 30th, and keep you updated on the box-office returns as the results come in.
We also want your thoughts on the Nightmare remake. Are you excited? Worried? Pissed off? Let us know. My biggest question is can Freddy Krueger survive without Robert Englund? Is the character strong enough to keep going even after the man famous for the role has been replaced? Some popular characters can continue on no matter who is playing the part. Just look at all the different actors who’ve played Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster, Michael Myers, and Jason. Norman Bates and the Psycho franchise, on the other hand, died with Anthony Perkins. Next weekend’s box-office might tell us which category Freddy falls into.
