Freddy Krueger is back from the dead to haunt your dreams forevermore in a cool new documentary trailer.
For the first time in many years, A Nightmare on Elm Street star Robert Englund dons the iconic scarred facial mask of his undead serial killer for a look back at the horror franchise.
He's teaming up with horror aficionado Mike Kerz on the upcoming film Nightmares in the Makeup Chair, which - among many other highlights - will take you step-by-step through the process of applying the Freddy Krueger makeup.
Robert Englund told Entertainment Weekly: "Nightmares in the Makeup Chair is my love letter to the Nightmare on Elm Street series and to practical makeup.
"I've always been in awe of the multi-talented makeup effects artists. From sketching to sculpting, they realise the design.
"Then to the fine precision of the moulding and the manufacturing of the makeup appliances which are nearly paper thin. And then, the application process where I sit in the makeup chair and I become their living canvas as they glue me in and paint the appliances.
"This documentary not only captures their talent, but I think it might inspire a new generation of practical effects artists. I was happy to become Freddy once again to share the makeup process with the fans."
The documentary will follow Englund as he pays tribute to the franchise's visionary Wes Craven, meets with fans and is interviewed about the legacy of Freddy Krueger within the horror community.
"Maybe - just maybe - Mr Krueger himself might just drop by and say hi," Englund teases in the trailer.
Nightmares in the Makeup Chair will have a festival run later this year, before coming to cinemas.
Of course, Englund originated the role of Freddy Krueger in 1984's Elm Street - the popularity of which would spin off sequels, video games, comics and a TV series.
Jackie Earle Haley took over the role for a Michael Bay-produced 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which was panned by critics and many fans.
