Saw this on USA Network (I think) in the late 80s/early 90s. It was either an anthology series or a miniseries reviewing horror movies. It may or may not have been hosted by Robert Englund. What I remember most is that the intro said something like, "There is nothing to be afraid of except your heart, which can stop beating at any moment". Know what it is?

  • Did you go through the IMDB for Englund?

  • I did and I didn't find it. It might not be Englund doing the narration I remember. It might be that a clip of Freddy was being shown during the narration. My memory is really vague, but I know that line is pretty close.

Freddy’s Nightmares has Robert Englund and is an anthology horror tv show from the correct time frame.

  • Neither of those is it. Thanks!

"Nightmare Cafe" is my best guess. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103502/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_94

The timing is right and it was an anthology series. "Freddie's Nightmares" is also a possible but that was earlier.
