Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994)
When Robert was done for the day, as soon as they yelled cut, he would just start ripping at the pieces and throw them behind him as he would walk to the makeup room (…) by the time he’d get there, half his makeup was off already. And there’d be people walking behind him with plastic bags picking up the pieces.
David: The final design for Freddy was based on a pepperoni pizza. I was at a restaurant one night, and I was having pizza and I was just kind of deep in thought. I started playing around with the cheese, putting it around the pepperoni, and actually made Freddy’s face on the pizza.
