10 Things About Freddy Krueger You Never Knew

10 Things About Freddy Krueger You Never Knew
Make no mistake about it: the Springwood Slasher is one of the greatest horror villains of all time. Nothing gets fans going like A Nightmare on Elm Street. Hardcore fans who have watched every minute of the fantastic documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy will probably be familiar with some of what we're about to tell you. Maybe it's a refresher course if you're a Fred Head. Perhaps you've just discovered the son of 100 maniacs. Either way, entering the boiler room, it's easy to get to know the man of many scary dreams just a little bit better. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Freddy Krueger.

Freddy Barely shows up in his first movie.

Seven minutes in heaven is the teenage party game dating back to the 1950s. Seven minutes in hell, on the other hand, would be an appropriate description of the late Wes Craven's original masterpiece.

Filmmaker/Author Thommy Hutson Talks Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy: The Making of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street

Having written and/or produced some of the horror genre’s best documentaries, including such extensive ones as 2010’s Never Sleep Again, 2011’s More Brains! A Return To The Living Dead and 2013’s epic Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th, it’s easy to say that Thommy Hutson not only loves the horror genre, but wants to give genre fans something different than just your run of the mill special feature Epk. You can tell a lot by watching a documentary and every single one Hutson has been involved with, really showcases an admiration and love for the slice and dice, blood-soaked greatest genre around.

While the Never Sleep Again doc covered the entire A Nightmare On Elm Street series, with a vast amount of knowledge, Hutson decided to serve up an even more personal account of not the entire series but 1984’s A Nightmare On Elm Street alone,

See What Freddy Krueger Almost Looked Like Instead

Horror movies are only as good as the monsters that inhabit them. From Michael Myers to Jason Voorhees, the slasher genre in particular has created some of the most iconic and distinctive looking mass murderers ever to grace the silver screen. Arguably no other slasher has maintained more mainstream exposure or than the nightmare-stalking Freddy Krueger – played to glorious effect by actor Robert Englund. However, the now legendary Freddy once looked quite different. Bloody Disgusting (follow the link to see the images) has some new pictures that show how Freddy’s look for Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street films was almost significantly different. This transformation is chronicled in the crowd-funded documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy. His trademark sweater was always present, but it had no sleeves, and instead of a fedora, the supernatural serial killer adorned his head with ...

Freddy Krueger almost didn't look like this

Freddy Krueger almost didn't look like this
Can you imagine Freddy Krueger without his famed fedora? Now you don't have to. Here's the "Newsies" version Wes Craven and company almost went with, before settling on the iconic look we know today (courtesy Bloody-Disgusting): Doesn't quite have the same feel, does it? It's fascinating to wonder whether the paperboy cap and sleeveless (!) red-and-green sweater would have doomed the franchise before it even began. We'll never know, but it's fun to speculate as a sort of "Sliding Doors"-esque scenario. The photo, in case you were wondering, comes courtesy of Thommy Hutson, who wrote and directed the excellent four-hour documentary "Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy," which covers all films in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series except the much-criticized 2010 remake. Trust: it's a must-see for any hardcore fan of the series. Navigate over to Bloody-Disgusting to see an additional image that features a number of different

ScreamFest La opens with Tales Of Halloween

ScreamFest La opens with Tales Of Halloween
ScreamFest La is now in full swing, and I could not be more ready for a week+ of horror movies from some of the best up-and-coming horror producers/directors in the world! I attended opening night on Tuesday and was treated to Epic Pictures & The October Society’s horror anthology Tales Of Halloween. The film included ten short terrifying—and sometimes hilarious—films from the likes of Adam Gierasch (Fertile Ground, Night Of The Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), Axelle Carolyn (Centurion, Soulmate), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2-4), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), John Skipp (Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child), Lucky Mckee (The Woman), Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers), Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent), Paul Solet (Grace), and Ryan Schifrin (Abominable).

There are quite a few horror movies reaching the silver screen this weekend, but Tales Of Halloween is the perfect film for the season.

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s John Skipp and Andrew Kasch

  • DailyDead
To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions, and more.

The only directing duo contributing to Tales of Halloween, John Skipp (writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street 5) and Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) have a lot to say about making a movie with their friends and the current state of horror. Their segment, “This Means War,” about a pair of neighbors feuding over Halloween decorations, deals with this very subject.

One of the things I love about Tales of Halloween is that so many of the segments deal with different aspects of the holiday. Yours tackles Halloween decorations... sort of. Where did the inspiration for your short, "This Means War", come from?

Andrew Kasch: Halloween haunts are my jam! Each year, I hit
