Abstract:

Robert Englund, the award-winning actor best known for his role as Freddy Krueger, tells his story in this captivating new memoir, published on the 25th anniversary of the first A Nightmare on Elm Street film. Englund is no monster, but a funny, charming Hollywood veteran. Packed with Robert's hilarious stories, playful self-deprecation, and a generous helping of Nightmare trivia, Hollywood Monster offers an unparalleled look at the beloved film icon. Of course, fame and fortune came years after the young actor shared a trailer with Henry Fonda, was punched in the face by Richard Gere, took down Burt Reynolds, and muscled his way between Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sally Field, and Jeff Bridges. With insider savvy and gallows humor, Robert recounts his audition for Wes Craven, the inspiration for Freddy's character, the grueling makeup sessions, his soon-to-be-famous costars, the on-set blunders, and the wave of popularity that propelled this California surfer kid all the way to the top.--From publisher description.
