In the works for many years now, the newly-titled doc Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story has now wrapped filming, Deadline reports this morning.

Deadline details, “Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story features a center piece interview with American actor Robert Englund, as well as interviews with Lance Henriksen, Eli Roth, Tony Todd, Bill Moseley, Lin Shaye, Heather Langenkamp, Nancy Booth (Englund’s wife of many years) and others.”

“Since first donning a tattered fedora and a glove of eviscerating blades in 1984, Robert Englund has become one our generation’s most beloved horror icons. Englund has risen to stand shoulder to shoulder in the pantheon of movie legends alongside such greats as Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee. His portrayal of Freddy Krueger is without doubt a moment as visceral to the horror genre as Chaney’s werewolf or Karloff’s ground-breaking realization of Frankenstein’s monster. Yet few realize the depths of England’s true power as a character actor away from the latex mask and iconic red and green jumper. A classically trained actor and talented director, Englund has starred in many well-received movies in the years since Freddy’s cinematic birth as well as directing his own feature film.

“This documentary will explore who the man behind the mask truly is, charting his early days in TV and Film to his current stratospheric status in the horror universe.”

Director Gary Smart (Pennywise: The Story of IT) said in a statement, “This unique and intimate portrait captures the man behind the glove and gives us a wonderful insight into the world of a classic Hollywood Icon. We are both honored and privileged to have the full support and participation of Robert (Englund) in the making of this documentary. He is absolutely delighted with our tribute to his long and varied career.”

Smart wrote the documentary with Neil Morris. Producers include Smart, Christopher Griffiths (RoboDoc: The Story of Robocop), John Campopiano (Pennywise: The Story of IT), Adam Evans (Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser), Michael Perez (Never Sleep Again! The Elm Street Legacy) and Hank Starrs (Hollywood Bulldogs: The Rise and Falls of the Great British Stuntman).

From Cult Screenings UK Ltd and Unannounced Films, The Robert Englund Story is expected to hit the festival circuit later this year, with no release plan at this time. Stay tuned.
