Of course we wanted to meet Robert Englund, the man behind one of the most iconic horror characters in the history of movie: Freddy Krueger. So at Comic Con in Amsterdam in 2016, Carola and Liv both had a photo op with this horror legend and we also attended his panel. At Weekend of Hell in Dortmund we attended the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" panel. At Comic Con Brussels, the panel was extremely crowded, so we only took a few pictures from afar.
