Are you from the 1980s or 1990s – is this when you grew up? If so you must know who Freddy Krueger is. The horror movies with him at front and center were something almost all horror lovers of the time and since have seen. He was one of the most influential characters at the time – as he was one of the big three – Freddy, Jason, and Michael. No last names are needed to strike feat in movie goer’s hearts or at least oi be ready for the popcorn!

Freddy Krueger might have been the worst of the three as everyone has to sleep. These movies combine shock horror with psychological horror as no one is safe. The original catchy line creepily chanted by little girls jump-roping in a horrible basement. This was the perfect to remind us of our lack of security:

One, two, Freddy’s coming for you.

Three, four, better lock your door.

Five, six, grab your crucifix.

Seven, eight, gonna stay up late.

Nine, ten, never sleep again.

Keep on reading if you dare to reacquaint yourself with the master of horror and the original slasher we were all afraid of!

Summary

Although Freddy Krueger is NOT someone you want to run into while sleeping you must admit he has a certain amount of style and boldness that makes him one of the scariest and most well-known horror characters of all time.

Freddy is the ultimate villain, you are only safe while awake and you can not stay up forever. Everyone needs sleep. The simplicity of his character is what makes it genius, sometimes the scariest things are those we were afraid of as children – the dark, the bogeyman, or being alone and defenseless. Sweet Dreams.
