How Well Do You Know The Nightmare On Elm Street Movies?
Freddy Krueger first appeared onscreen in 1984’s A Nightmare On Elm Street to literally haunt the dreams of an entire generation of movie fans. The combination of his burnt face, sick sense of humor, and razor sharp claws made him an instant horror icon, and he’s appeared in various sequels, television shows, comics, and even as a playable character in the latest Mortal Kombat; they even made Freddy pajamas and toys.
With each passing sequel, the setpieces got more elaborate and the mythology more convoluted, with Freddy himself becoming the lead character instead of the teens he was chasing. He evolved from shadowy stalker to full-blown movie star, and he’s never been afraid of a bad pun or two. Despite retiring a couple of times along the way, he remains beloved by fans, and while the 2010 remake might have disappointed many, Freddy himself remains eternal.
With over nine movies and various other spin-offs to choose from, let’s take a nightmarish walk through the entire series. This quiz is friendly to casual fans of the series, though there are a few curveballs along the way to keep things fresh. So grab your crucifix and down some coffee, and let’s get ready for Freddy.
