The website BLOODY DISGUSTING today reminded me of something I completely forgot about from my youth.. the Freddy Kreuger 1-900 number..
Like Brad Miska, I never called when I was a kid. I remember my cousins and I watching these commercials late at night and thinking about doing it.. but that was the 20th century. The time of TOLL calls and no internet.. such a strange and different time compared to now.
Nonetheless, check out the article from B-D that also includes plenty of Youtube nostalgia of people actually calling the number.
So .. did anyone ever win that ‘contest’ to appear in a movie??
