Freddy Fan Club
Freddy Krueger’s popularity soared in the late ‘80s and New Line Cinema pushed their promotion efforts on all merchandising fronts. Enter: The Freddy Fan Club! This short-lived club began in 1988 and provided fans with a collection of printed materials showcasing Freddy Krueger and promoting the then-upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.
Freddy: “Welcome to the nightmare that never ends. You are now an official member of the Freddy Krueger Fan Club. Free to create havoc and mayhem in your own mind.
