Robert Englund Recovering After Breaking Foot

Our friend Robert Englund was dealt an unfortunate hand and doesn’t have a leg to stand on after breaking his foot just before he was scheduled to appear at Wizard World in Des Moines this weekend.

The iconic actor who plays Freddy Krueger, said in a Facebook video, he is deeply regretful that he can’t make the convention, but in true Englund form gives fans a comical apology clad in a red and green scarf and signature razor glove, all while his dog plays nursemaid to his injury.

“It’s a nightmare at Robert Englund’s house,” he says in the video below, “I broke my foot.”

We have met Mr. Englund several times at horror conventions and he is always excited to attend, joking with fans and hamming it up Krueger-style for photo-ops and autographs. It pains us to see him have to miss all his fans and horror family.

All of us here at iHorror wish our favorite dream monster a quick and speedy recovery, and hope to see you in your usual fan-loving, killer-good-spirits at the next convention.
