The Best Of Freddy Krueger

It’s no secret, that my favourite horror franchise, is Nightmare On Elm Street.
The man in the dirty red and green sweater, is the villain that keeps on tickin…

Throughout the Elm Street films, Freddy has had so many brilliant moments… classic moments… and dare I say it… Epic moments (I hate that word).
Whether it be something he’s said, or a really inventive, imaginative kill… which of these are his best?
I have taken on the mammoth task, of going through video, after video of Freddy’s banter, and the slaughter of the teenagers on Elm Street… and picked my favourite Freddy moments.

1. Nightmare On Elm Street 5 : Dream Child
…Freddy’s Re-Birth…

…”It’s A Boy”…

2. Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
…Jennifer’s Big Break In TV…

“…Cut The Prime Time Bitch…”

3. Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors…

Freddy Krueger: The Puppet Master

4. Wes Craven’s New Nightmare
…Julie’s Death… 

…”Ever Played Skin The Cat?”…

The glove worn in this film, was the only glove to feature a 5 blades, instead of the normal 4, with the extra blade being on the thumb. ‘Robert Englund’, the actor who plays the role of Freddy Krueger, hated the re-designed glove, and found it very ‘clunky’ and difficult to use and operate.

5. Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge
…Jesse’s Transformation…

…Bye Bye Grady…

6. Nightmare On Elm Street
…Tina’s Death…

…”This Is God”…

7. Nightmare On Elm Street 4: …Dream Master
…Roach Motel…

…”You Can Check In, But You Can’t Check Out”…

8. Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
…Wizard Master Death…

…”Its Back In The Saddle Again”…

9. Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge
…”You’ve Got The Body”…

…”And I’ve Got The Brain”…

10. Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)
…Jesse’s Death…

…”We’ve Still Got 6 More Minutes To Play”…

Honorable Mention
…Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)…
…Alternate Ending…

This gets an honorable mention, because this is a gem, that should have been used in the original, but for some odd reason was left out. The reboot, for all its misgivings, would have, in my opinion, been elevated with this ending. The whole “Welcome To My World” speech in the theatrical ending, just feels like such a cop out, and a total let down. I hope you enjoy the alternate ending as much as me.
