Robert Englund Playing Freddy Krueger One Last Time at this Summer's Flashback WeekendWe never thought we’d see the day where we’d get to report on Robert Englund slapping on the burnt makeup and reprising the role of Freddy Krueger, and though this exciting announcement unfortunately has nothing to do with a movie…

… it’s nevertheless one of the downright coolest pieces of news we’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing.

In celebration of A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s 30th anniversary, Chicago’s Flashback Weekend convention has just announced that Englund will be appearing at this coming August’s event in full Freddy Krueger makeup and outfit, for one night only. Best of all, a special ticket package will nab you a picture with Englund, as Freddy, which is something that has NEVER before been offered up to us fans.

The event takes place from August 8th-10th at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, with Englund appearing as Freddy on Friday, August 8th, ONLY. In addition to the meet and greet session, he’ll also take to the stage in full costume as part of a live talk show event.

Utilizing the same extensive process used on the Elm Street film sets, the makeup will be applied by FX legend Robert Kurtzman, who worked on both Dream Child and New Nightmare. This will mark the first time Englund has ever appeared as Freddy on the convention circuit, and it’s likely the last time he will ever don the iconic makeup.

Head over to the Flashback Weekend website to learn more and purchase tickets. It’s going to cost you $365 to meet Englund and attend the live stage show, which is quite frankly a small price to pay for such an incredible experience.

Do you agree, or do you think the convention is charging a bit too much? Sound off below!
