You can see our other Nightmare on Elm Street lists here. Their bastard son of a hundred maniacs was hotter than ever after Dream Warriors set franchise highs at the box office, even setting a record for biggest opening weekend for an independent movie. So, naturally, hey rushed into production on Part 4.
Reviewed by: Brian C. Are YOU part of the problem? Those who saw this film in the s cannot forget this character masterfully played by Robert Englund —his sarcasm, his wicked laugh that sent shivers down the spine, and his comedic spark—all of which made Freddy all the more scary.

Set in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohiothe plot revolves around several teenagers who are stalked and killed in their dreams by dead child murderer Freddy Krueger. The teenagers don't know why Krueger is trying to kill them, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago. Tina screams in the Boiler Room before her nightgown is shredded at the front by the mutilated figure.
Freddy represented the boogeyman that terrified us all at one time or another; this one fully come to life and ready to take ours. At his best he haunted his victims with terrifying creations that mined their deepest fears and insecurities, while at his worst he slung awkward pop culture references while still crafting nightmarish scenarios. The son of a hundred maniacs and one poor nun, he became far more evil and powerful after death, developing the ability to warp and manipulate dreams, wreaking havoc in the real world while tormenting his victims in the dreamscape.
Several young men and young women discover that they are all having the same terrifying dreams, which include a horribly disfigured man wearing knives on his hands. They soon begin to die, one by one. Directed by Sam Bayer.
Improbable pop icon, craggy-faced demon, the Mick Jagger of slasher-flicks: Freddy Krueger, the most beloved horror villain since Dracula, first slashed his way across silver screens three decades ago this year in A Nightmare on Elm Street. Krueger was a supernaturally evil burn victim whose wit was as sharp as the glove he'd modded out with razors. The character stalked mostly innocent teens in their dreams, toyed with their fears in darkly comic ways and then slaughtered them horrifically.
It has had plenty of women half naked, in bikinis and so forth. In the infamous bathtub scene Heather is attacked by Freddy who pulls her into and ultimately under the tub. The underwater view of her bare breasts are a body double, but the nip slip at the end is all her.
