The Robert Englund Blogathon

Veteran actor Robert Englund strikes a Krueger pose for the camera.He is the man behind the fire burns and the iron glove. I am referring to actor Robert Englund who is known for his role as Freddy Krueger in the film franchise A Nightmare on Elm Street. A couple of months ago I thought it would be interesting to sift through the entire collection of Nightmare films again and post a review for each one of them in a marathon style. I also sent out an invitation to a crowd of fellow movie bloggers to send in their articles that are connected with Englund’s career so that I may include a link here for your reading pleasure. For the reviews that I have written will be posted here on this site every thirty minutes starting at 2:58 PM in California time. If you happen to be reading this introductory message at the exact moment that it was published online at 2:28 PM then you have thirty minutes and counting until the next post will arrive on the site. For those who are observant fans of horror films from the 1980s may discover the hidden meaning of the odd publishing time if they were to translate it into military time. Moving on to the guts of the introduction for the marathon I would like to present to you the links to all the articles that are connected to Robert Englund’s films.
