Tail from the Crypt: Robert Rusler from “NOES2″, “Vamp” and more


Back in the mid-to-late ’80s you would be hard-pressed to find a hotter horror himbo than Robert Rusler. Possibly best known for his portrayal of best friend/object of repressed gay lust Grady in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Wiener-Popping Hot Tub Party (full review over here), Rusler appeared in a handful of hot teen genre flicks (Vamp, Weird Science) before moving on to mostly television, where he still works today:

robertruslernowStill got it!

Rusler’s “hairless, tan, and cocky” routine was emblematic of the era (and Falcon Studios gay porn) and his death scene in NOES2 actually brought me to tears once as a young’un. (To quote Heathers: “Jesus God in heaven, why’d to have to kill such hot snatch?”)

Hot snatch Case in point:


By all accounts Rusler has matured into quite a hot daddy-type, but we’ll always remember him as the cold-cream material that got pinned to his own bedroom door by his somewhat gayish best friend.

Plenty more snaps of Rusler from NOES2, Vamp, and more, after the jump!
