Before A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984 we were all laughing at scary movies, they had become comedies. It was not until Freddy Krueger came around and changed the meaning of scary movies! These were in fact horror movies! Freddy Krueger was not just a ghost who slaughtered you not in the basement or some godforsaken cabin but in your dreams, he certainly did have plenty in common with Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees, the two superstars of slasherdom. He is commonly identified by his burned, disfigured face, red and dark green striped sweater, brown fedora hat, and trademark metal-clawed brown leather glove. In his first big scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street, he holds his arms out wide, like a wall-shadow parody of a boogeyman, and then mockingly slices off two of his own fingers. A new kind of killer has arrived. He’s not just here to scare you he’s here to have a good time doing it. People love the suspense of Freddy movies. In 2003, Freddy even resurfaced to battle his other horror film maniac rival Jason Voorhees in a battle of the franchise icons. Maybe it’s the glove, a unique weapon for certain, or the way in which Robert Englund has kept the character full of fun. Whatever it is this horror icon is still alive today.
