Freddy Krueger ’80s ‘Nightmare’ Promo Video
BloodyDisgusting posted a cool retro video from an ’80s NOES promo video that was to be used in rental stores for VHS videos (remember that? “Be Kind, Rewind”).

I believe this may have been hiding on the original A Nightmare on Elm Street DVD box set as an extra feature (the bonus disc was a maze and it took hours to find everything), but Mr. Barkan brought it to my attention that it was now online. What we’ve posted below is Media Home Entertainment’s video rental promo that features Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger telling retailers why they must score some A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors units. It’s super hokey and cheesy, but it’s really cool to see what it was like back in the 80′s when distributors were trying to convince the almighty Blockbusters of the world to take their product.
