There is no denying that the is, and always will be, a huge level of interest in Robert Englund. The Nightmare on Elm Street legend continues to appear in low budget horror and whether the film is good or bad, Enlgund is able in inject his own personality and give the film some added class. The movie is already starring glamour model Lucy Pinder, and now with Englund attached this could well be something worth getting excited about. The following is from the official press release:
Nightmare on Elm Street icon Robert Englund makes his British film debut in Strippers vs. Werewolves! Hollywood legend Robert (Freddy Krueger) Englund is starring in his first British feature film as Tapper, a sinister werewolf pack leader, in indie comedy ‘Strippers vs. Werewolves’, which begins filming on Monday 16 May in locations around London.
Jonathan Sothcott, who is producing the film with Simon Phillips, commented, “Robert is the ultimate horror movie star – and we are honoured to have him on board and proud of ourselves for being the first British producers to secure him for a movie here. Robert has a dignity and gravitas as an actor that lifts any film he’s in. He’s the cherry on our cake.”
The 35-year movie veteran, who played razor-fingered killer Freddy Krueger seven times in the blockbuster ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ series, has also starred in ‘Wishmaster’, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘2001 Maniacs’ and the cult television series ‘V’.
