The Evolution of Freddy Krueger (Infographic)


Halloween is fast-approaching, and if you haven’t already started a horror movie binge-watch, now is the time. While there are a ton of scary movie options out there, one that should be on anyone’s annual Halloween viewing needs to be A Nightmare on Elm Street. When it comes to slasher films, A Nightmare on Elm Street is up there with the likes of Halloween and Friday the 13th as a pioneer of the genre. What sets it apart from those franchises is that it has a villain in Freddy Krueger that talks to his victims while terrorizing them. Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees may have the size advantage, but Freddy is able to get into his victims’ heads and turn their dreams into nightmares. That can prove to be a lot more effective than towering over someone and slowly walking after them as they run away.

If you’d like to learn more about Freddy Krueger and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, has put together this infographic featuring each film from the 1984 original to the 2010 remake and everything in between. The infographic includes Freddy’s kill count for each movie along with several interesting facts. Did you know that the first Nightmare on Elm Street was Johnny Depp’s first movie? Or that Freddy doesn’t speak a word for almost 40 minutes in the 3rd film? Before going on to produce the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson even wrote a draft for the Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare that ended up going unused.
