Kentucky Horror Movie Fan Receives Gift from Hollywood’s Freddy Krueger
About a month ago, Joey Newton, a client at the Opportunity Center of Owensboro got a really exciting gift in the mail. He got an autographed postcard from Adam Sandler!
See, Joey's in the Opportunity Center's Day Training Program and he decided, as part of that program, to write letters to some of Hollywood's biggest stars. Joey has always wanted to be an actor and he looks up to a variety of people in the industry.
Adam Sandler was near the top of the list of people that he wanted to reach out to and correspond with. Within weeks, Adam reached back and sent Joey the autographed postcard you see above.
Needless to say, Joey absolutely lost it. I was sent video of his reaction and it was priceless. Over the weekend, he got to have that reaction again.
Joey LOVES horror films and has long looked up to Robert Englund, who originated the role of one of the scariest scary movie villains ever- Freddy Krueger.
So, Joey wrote to Robert as well. According to E.B. Ramsey, Joey's family home provider, "All Joey did was write a letter to him telling him he was a big fan of him in the Freddy Krueger movies."
Wouldn't you know? Somehow, "Freddy" put down that glove with the knives on it, picked up a pen and wrote back.
Check this out!
Yes! Robert Englund- Freddy Krueger himself- sent Joey an authorized autographed post card too and he sent along some upcoming Horror Con dates.
Needless to say, Joey had a very similar reaction to receiving Robert's postcard that he did when he received Adam's.
I suppose, given the news, that it's now appropriate to steal a line or two from the Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise.
Joey! One, two Freddy's coming for you . . .
