Freddy Krueger Snake Head

Here is a behind-the-scenes look at a perfectly disgusting scene from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, featuring Heather Langenkamp, Patricia Arquette, and Robert Englund.

Freddy Krueger (Englund) turns into this snake-thing, and tries to swallow Kristen (Patricia Arquette)whole. Can’t find a clip from the real movie to show you, but trust me, its pretty horrific. I can show you a diorama of the gackworthy scene. The snake head also apparently does a lot of slimy mouth-frothing which I don’t remember, but the behind-the-scenes footage brings it to full goop-pumping life.

According to IMDb, the original “Freddy Snake” unintentionally came out looking too phallic. WAY too phallic.The crew only had one hour to film the scene, and they didn’t have enough time to paint it. So, it was covered in a green slime to overcome the “pinkish hue.”

I wonder how Robert Englund felt about having distorted versions of his Freddy Face appear in such…awkward ways?

EDIT: More behind the scenes footage that actually gives you a pretty good idea of how the snake head looked before it was covered in green goo(toward the end of the clip), and how the “swallowing”scene was set up:

EDIT 2: Found it!
