Robert Englund on a shot that was left on the cutting room floor...


“The last week of shooting, we did a scene in which I drag Amanda Wyss, the sexy, blond actress who played Tina, across the ceiling of her bedroom, a sequence that ultimately became one of the most visceral from the entire Nightmare franchise. Tina’s bedroom was constructed as a revolving set, and before Tina and Freddy did their dance of death, Wes did a few POV shots of Nick Corri (aka Rod) staring at the ceiling in disbelief, then we flipped the room, and the floor became the ceiling and the ceiling became the floor and Amanda and I went to work.

As was almost always the case when Freddy was chasing after a nubile young girl possessed by her nightmare, Amanda was clad only in her baby-doll nightie. Wes had a creative camera angle planned that he wanted to try, a POV shot from between Amanda’s legs. Amanda, however, wasn’t in the cameramen’s union and wouldn’t legally be allowed to operate the cemera for the shot. Fortunately, Amy Haitkin, our director of photography’s wife, was our film’s focus puller and a gifted camera operator in her own right. Being a good sport, she peeled off her jeans and volunteered to stand in for Amanda. The makeup crew dapped some fake blood onto her thighs, she lay down on the ground, Jacques handed her the camera, I grabbed her ankles, and Wes called, “Action.”

After I dragged Amy across the floor/ceiling, I spontaneously blew her a kiss with my blood-covered claw; the fake blood on my blades was viscous, so that when I blew her my kiss of death, the blood webbed between my blades formed a bubble, a happy cinematic accident. The image of her pale, slender, blood-covered legs, Freddy looming over her, straddling the supine adolescent girl, knife fingers dripping, was surreal, erotic, and made for one of the most sexually charged shots of the movie. Unfortunately it got left on the cutting-room floor. If Wes had left it in, the MPAA - who always seemed to have it out for Mr. Craven - would definitely have tagged us with an X rating. You win some, you lose some.” -Robert Englund

I've actually seen Zombie Strippers too. How funny is that?

Happy Birthday Robert!

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

Woo Hoo - he is great! I actually watched Zombie Strippers just because he was in it. It was kind of worth a laugh!

On this day in Horror History, Robert Barton Englund was born in Glendale California. A cult icon that has invaded the nightmares of horror fans for the nearly half a century, he has starred in such films as Eaten Alive (1977), Galaxy of Terror (1981), Strangeland (1998), 2001 Maniacs (2005), Zombie Strippers! (2008), and countless more iconic movies. His most memorable role would not only prove his brilliance in character acting, but the soul and love that he has for the industry and the legions of fans that are its life blood. As Freddy Krueger he would epitomize what is arguably the most charismatic horror villain of all time, and would reprise the role for all subsequent sequels. An inspiration to generation, he will forever be one of the most pivotal and terrifyingly genius actors in horror history.

“I get a lot of teenagers going, 'Yo, Krueger,' and honking their horn and giving me the claw. Yeah, I'm recognized.” – Robert Englund
Horror Central

I love Robert Englund... I'll watch unknown movies just cause he's in them. :)
