Character of the Week: Freddy Krueger
"1..2..Freddy's comin' for you, 3...4...better lock your door." One of the most well-known boogiemen in horror is Mr. Freddy Krueger. A child molester and murderer who was burned to death by a mob of angry parents. Then, he went on to haunt teenagers in their dreams. I never really had nightmares as a kid, but when I was younger I used to have to sleep with the door open and the hallway light on because I would see his face outside of my window. The remake of the original Nightmare on Elm Street showed that noone should be allowed to play Freddy except for Robert Englund. I like Jackie Earle Haley, but it just was not the same!!!
