About Freddy Krueger and Nightmare on Elm Street

Everyone has their favourite boogeyman from the 80s. Although, most are from the slasher genre, few were as terrifying as the one who exists in every nightmare you’ve ever had. Freddy Krueger, who was burned alive by the townsfolk in Springwood, OH, returned in every Nightmare on Elm Street to exact his revenge on whichever teens starred in each film.

What separated Freddy Krueger from Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers was the fact that Freddy is mostly a supernatural boogeyman who inhabits the dreams of his victims. Most importantly, though, he does so with hilarious gusto and maniacal intent. Often citing catchphrases like “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you” or “Welcome to Prime Time, Bitch.” It’s because of these catchphrases and his iconic glove, which bares a blade on each finger, that he continues to be a boogeyman that horror fans are forever scared of.

We’ve prepared all our favourite Freddy Krueger quotes from every Nightmare on Elm Street movie.
We hope they scare the hell out of you.
