Is anyone cooler than Robert Englund? That’s a rhetorical question, as anyone with an IQ higher than a peanut knows the answer is no, Robert Englund is just every kind of awesome there is.
Today, June 6th, he turns 70 years old if you can believe it. Looking at him and hearing him, you’d never guess it. The guy makes that battery bunny look like a slacker. He’s still going, and he’s not slowing down.
We all know and love him as Freddy Krueger, but of course at DreadVision we don’t go for the massive horror hits. Back in 1989 Robert put his own spin on the legendary Gaston Leroux novel The Phantom of the Opera, and it’s that movie, directed by Dwight H. Little (Halloween 4), that we’ll be showing you at June’s DreadVision at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, TX!
As always, I’ll be there to host the show and conduct a challenge of my own maniacal making. The prize is, of course, last month’s Box of Dread to one brave and lucky winner. As it’s TACO Tuesday (“Tickets Are Cheaper On” Tuesday), tix are only $5 and there will be tacos! Tickets are on sale NOW at the Alamo Drafthouse website. We’re back in a smaller auditorium this month so they will go FAST. Can we pull off our first sell-out? Make it happen, fiends!
Can’t make it out to Dallas? Curious about the hijinks we get up to at your average DreadVision screening? Check out last month’s introduction and challenge for The Gate below, and keep your eyes opn my YouTube channel for more DreadVision fun!
