Nancy, Kris, Quentin, Jesse and Dean all live on Elm Street. At night, they’re all having the same dream – of the same man, wearing a tattered red and green striped sweater, a beaten fedora half-concealing a disfigured face and a gardener’s glove with knives for fingers. And they’re all hearing the same frightening voice…

One by one, he terrorizes them within the curved walls of their dreams, where the rules are his, and the only way out is to wake up.

But when one of their number dies a violent death, they soon realize that what happens in their dreams happens for real, and the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. Turning to each other, the four surviving friends try to uncover how they became part of this dark fairytale, hunted by this dark man. Functioning on little to no sleep, they struggle to understand why them, why now, and what their parents aren’t telling them.

Buried in their past is a debt that has just come due, and to save themselves, they will have to plunge themselves into the mind of the most twisted nightmare of all… Freddy Krueger.

The 10 Most Tragic Deaths from the Nightmare on Elm Street Legacy
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street and its antagonist, Freddy Krueger. A child-killing psychopath who was burned alive by vengeful parents only to return to take his revenge through the dreams of their now teenaged children. Many of the deaths were fantastical of course, but some were crueler than others. Those are the ones that stick in my mind because they didn’t make you cheer, they actually horrified you.

8 Times Freddy Krueger Wasn’t Played by Robert Englund in the Nightmare on Elm Street Films
When you hear the name Freddy Krueger, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely another name: Robert Englund. One of the things that makes Freddy unique in the world of horror villains is that he was always played by Englund, in each and every film of the original Nightmare on Elm Street franchise – and even in Freddy’s long awaited cinematic battle with Jason Voorhees. Well, for the most part, at least…

30th Anniversary: My Terrifying First Encounter With A Nightmare On Elm Street
“Time to go to sleep.” Those ominous words preceded my introduction to A Nightmare on Elm Street nearly 30 years ago. My father, having borrowed a VCR, rented Wes Craven’s seminal 1984 horror film on the day it was released on VHS. He was a savvy horror fan and had obviously read about the film – why he missed it in theaters is unknown to me. I’ll just chalk it up to being the father of two youngsters and he was unable to escape the house for an evening when the movie opened wide in theaters on November 16, 1984. Alright, I’ll take the blame. Regardless, he was finally catching up to it. My mother was turning in for the night, my little sister was passed out in her bed and it was my turn to head to my bedroom while my father looked forward to indulging in some horror movies.

[Editorial] To Those Complaining About the Robert Englund Flashback Weekend Ticket Price…
As we previously told you here on Shock, the announcement was made earlier this week by Chicago’s Flashback Weekend Convention that Robert Englund will be appearing at this August’s event in full Freddy Krueger makeup and costume, Friday only. Not only will he be appearing on stage, as Freddy, for a special live talk show, but he’ll also be signing autographs and taking photos with fans, also as Freddy. The event will mark the very first time Englund has ever hit the convention circuit in character, and in fact it’s the first time he’ll be slapping on the makeup and iconic Christmas sweater since Freddy vs. Jason, over ten years ago.

Rank ‘Em! The Many Faces of Freddy Krueger from Best to Worst!
When Ryan asked me to participate in crafting a list of the “ultimate” version of some of our favorite horror icons, I jumped at the chance to tackle Freddy Krueger. Since I was young, I always loved Freddy. Not only was he this supernatural half-Wolverine, but he was so jovial about it all. The levity of it allowed to me to enjoy the movies more, not only to myself, but with a wider audience.
