Whatever happened to the guy who played Freddy Krueger


Englund has also stepped behind the camera on occasion, like his work in 2015 on an Italian project called The Vij, based on a novel by Nikolai Gogol. Unfortunately, The Vij is unlikely ever to be completed, with Englund lamenting in an interview that funding issues in the middle of production killed the project. 

That said, he still looks at potential projects often, helming the 2008 release of what he calls "a little teen comedy" he shot by the name of Killer Pad. To date, it's the only directorial project he's actually completed following his departure from the Nightmare movies, but it's not his first. Between the filming of Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and 5, Englund got the opportunity to direct a barely-remembered film called 976-EVIL, a bizarre curiosity of the horror genre that, despite its terrible reviews, really couldn't be all that much worse than, say, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.
