Freddy Krueger is one of the most iconic horror movie ghouls of all time. From the brilliant mind of Wes Craven, Freddy scared countless children of all ages throughout the 80's and 90's on the big screen and the small one.
Freddy joins the list for 2 reasons.
1) In honor of Wes Craven's passing. RIP. Thank you Wes for the gift of Freddy Krueger. Thank you.
2) The fact that New Line Cinema has announced recently that they are rebooting A Nightmare on Elm street again, just a few short years after the Jackie Earle Haley reboot. That movie didn't do so well but New Line is banking on the fact that because you love Freddy, you will CONSUME it again and again.
The fact is, Freddy isn't Freddy unless he's played by Robert Englund and continuously trying to duplicate his success with the same story every few years is a sad state for our one liner dropping dream monster. Let Freddy dream in peace.
