But at heart, Englund is committed to horror and differs from other "actors who go on talk shows apologizing for being in a horror movie. And then it comes out and it's dreadful because they didn't really embrace the genre.''
Englund is currently working in pre-production on 2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys (2009) and 2001 Maniacs: The Hillbillys Have Eyes (2010) both remakes/sequels of goremeister Herschell Gordon Lewis’s original Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964).
