American Humane Disproves ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ Animal Abuse Video

With everyone’s feeds full of horrible news stories these days, you’ve probably already forgotten about the video of alleged animal abuse on the set of A Dog’s Purpose.

Robert Englund Suits Up as Freddy Krueger Once Again for ‘Nightmares in the Makeup Chair’

Over the course of the eight Nightmare on Elm Street films, Robert Englund made dream stalker Freddy Krueger from a slasher-film specter into a major cultural icon.
