Iconic boogeyman Freddy Krueger returns to scare everybody senseless for Halloween! Many years ago, child-killer Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) was burned alive by vigilantes. But now Freddy's back to take revenge upon his killers' own children! Innocent young teenager Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) soon finds herself terrorised by this hideous figure while she's asleep. Back in 1984, Wes Craven came up with one of the scariest concepts in horror film history: the boogeyman who stalks and kills you in your dreams. Only by remaining awake can you stay alive! Vengeful Freddy is a suitably horrifying figure. Clad in a trademark dirty striped jumper and fedora, he wears a razor-sharp clawed glove. This scarred and merciless murderer quickly took his place alongside Jason and Leatherface as a slasher movie icon. Watch out for the young Johnny Depp in his very first film role as one of Freddy's earliest victims.
