      Erik Piepenburg New York Times It’s really more of an annotated oral history of Englund’s entire, extensive IMDb page — almost film by film, in chronological order, for more than two hours. It’s exhausting. Jun 7, 2023 Full Review Luke Y. Thompson AV Club ...this is not an especially cinematic documentary–it feels framed and paced for your TV screen, made for cable, streaming, or a really nice DVD bonus feature. Jun 6, 2023 Full Review Ian Bunting Daily Record (UK) Robert Englund comes across as humble, kind, appreciative and warmly reflective in Christopher Griffiths and Gary Smart’s documentary Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares. Nov 16, 2023 Full Review Alistair Harkness Scotsman A lovingly made, excusably indulgent documentary... Rated: 3/5 Oct 3, 2023 Full Review Matt Glasby Radio Times Mostly it's just Englund telling tall stories in his trademark baritone. Rated: 2/5 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Erik Childress Movie Madness Podcast A thorough encapsulation of a career that is more than the sum of a single franchise. Very entertaining and a reminder that being an ally to your fellow artists reaps as many benefits to oneself as to the community. Rated: 3/4 Jun 14, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
