The Last Horror Gentleman (Happy Birthday Robert Englund)



In 1984, the classically trained actor Robert Englund starred in horror maven Wes Craven's "A Nightmare On Elm Street," turning him into a horror icon, arguably the first horror star since the magnificent Hammer Studios duo of Lee and Cushing. He shares a distinction with other icons like "Hellraiser"s Doug Bradley, and the classic era's Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee in appearing multiple times as his iconic character...Freddy Krueger. And much like those Hammer Studio icons, he is also a gentleman of horror. And that's something not often seen in the modern era of horror. And as a fan of the Universal Monsters and Hammer Studios eras, I very much appreciate that.
Along with that original film, my favorite of the series oddly enough is the self aware sequel "New Nightmare." You got to see both the monster AND the man. And it foreshadowed a future Wes Craven franchise..."Scream."
So happy birthday Robert Englund, a modern day horror icon and gentleman!
