Freddy comes to Monster-Mania Con!

ONE, TWO FREDDY’S COMING FOR YOU!

We are VERY excited to announce that our favorite guest, ROBERT ENGLUND will be returning to MONSTER-MANIA, headlining not one but TWO of our shows! ROBERT will be attending both MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 the weekend of AUGUST 17-19th in CHERRY HILL, NJ and also MONSTER-MANIA CON 41 the weekend of SEPT 28-30th in HUNT VALLEY, MD!

ROBERT ENGLUND has long been a friend of our show, first appearing at MONSTER-MANIA CON 2, fourteen years ago. This year he’ll be appearing at both our New Jersey and Maryland shows to meet the fans in both of those areas.
ROBERT certainly needs no introduction to any MONSTER-MANIA CON fan. ROBERT played the iconic role of FREDDY KREUGER in the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET film series. ROBERT first donned the now famous sweater and glove for Wes Craven’s 1984 film A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and took the horror world by storm. The original NOES franchise has now spanned 8 films, culminating in 2003’s long anticipated horror icon battle, FREDDY VS JASON.

In 1988 ROBERT once again played the role of FREDDY KREUGER as he hosted the television series FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES which ran for two seasons.

ROBERT has starred in a seemingly endless list of other projects including the lead role in the 1989 remake of the classic horror film THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. More recently ROBERT has starred in such projects as WISHMASTER, V, THE MANGLER, URBAN LEGEND, STRANGELAND, 2001 MANIACS, HATCHET, FEAR CLINIC, BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON, MASTERS OF HORROR, NIGHT TERRORS, C.H.U.D. II, DEAD & BURIED and many, many, many more.

Please join us in welcoming horror film icon ROBERT ENGLUND back to BOTH MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 AND 41, the weekend of AUGUST 17-19 in Cherry Hill, NJ and SEPTEMBER 28-30th in HUNT VALLEY, MD!
