Shooting to super-stardom with his revolutionary portrayal of Freddy Krueger in the ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ franchise - a moment without doubt as visceral to the horror genre as Chaney's werewolf or Karloff's ground-breaking realisation of Frankenstein's monster – Englund has firmly earned his place in the pantheon of horror movie legends.

The documentary features a host of horror icons including Robert Englund himself, as well as Heather Langenkamp, Eli Roth, Lance Henriksen, Lin Shaye, Tony Todd, and Miko Hughes. With further exclusive interviews with many of the star's co-workers from projects including Urban Legend, 2001 Maniacs, 976-EVIL, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Wishmaster, V, Dead and Buried, Phantom of the Opera, and, of course, the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, this unique and captivating portrait captures the full story of the man behind the glove, exploring not only his most iconic role but the depths of England's true power as a character actor in the years since Freddy's cinematic birth.
