We all have fond memories of the fun ways Freddy picked off his victims in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, but can you remember some of the really bizarre ones? If not don’t worry. Your horror buddy Dan has taken the time to compile a list of the best ones. Feel free to thank me in the comments.
Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare- You forgot the power glove
This one generally isn’t one of people’s favourites but I love it! Maybe it’s because I was massively into video games at the time, or maybe I liked seeing Spencer’s smug stoner face get what was coming to him. Anyway all I know is I want that power glove so if someone wanted to make a working one for me, message me and I’ll tell you where to send it. Thanks
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child – Comic book style
Yeah its cheesy, but that’s what makes it so good, and you can’t argue that it’s not far out there with the most creative kills. The writer must have been higher then President Trump’s makeup budget. Also if it not for this crazy scene we might never have gotten the Comic book Freddy.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child – Stuffed
Freddy in a Chefs hat and stuffing Greta’s mouth with so much food at one of her parents high class dinner parties that she ends up looking like that exploding Chinese guy in Big Trouble in Little China (1986). What’s not to like?!
Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare – Wile E Coyote Style
This is literally like something out of a road runner or bugs bunny sketch. John Doe falls several thousand feet and lands on a small bed on spikes that Freddy just wheeled in place, tiring himself out. He then breaks the fourth wall in true cartoon fashion. Still pretty fun though.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master – Come With Me if you Want to Lift
Maybe it was all the muscle man movies around at the time that made the film makers feel there needed to be a gym scene, but it takes a fucked up turn into crazy town. Debbie ends up having Freddy spotting her on the weights and by the looks of things he isn’t very good at it, he snaps her arms at both elbows. Now for the crazy part…her arms fall off leaving insect like tentacles and she ends up running away while turning into a bug.
Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare – Exploding head syndrome
Playing on poor Carlos’ disability, this is a long and torturous death. Starting with some PTSD memories of his abusive mother making him deaf with a massive cotton swab. Follow it up by then giving him super hearing strength so much so that every little noise is painful. Anyway his head explodes when Freddy scratches his glove on a blackboard. Classic.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child – A Need for Speed
One of my personal favourites, wires and the like plunging under the skin and working their way around the victim’s body until the skin peels off like a boiled ham. When there is no flesh remaining he is left resembling a cyborg on a motor bike. Cool… or maybe it’s because his name is Dan.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors – Welcome to Prime Time Bitch
Any actor’s worst nightmare has to be dying on TV, sure, but what about dying IN TV. Freddy turns into a television set and smashes Jennifer’s head into the tube. What more can I say other than it probably wouldn’t work with today’s flat screens.
Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors – The Puppet Master
Using Philips veins as puppet strings to walk him up to an open window on the fifth floor and then forcing him to jump out has to be in the best death scenes of the whole lot and not just the most creative.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors – Let’s get high
Definitely one of the best death scenes from the whole series, Taryn getting an overdose from hell. Throw in some holes in her arms from the old needles that look like little mouths sucking for the drugs, and not only do you have a horrible way to die but also a cringe fest for any viewers that have trypophobia. Freddy’s finger syringes are amazing. She ended up higher then Trumps hair on a windy day.
A Nightmare on Elm Street – Bed Barf Blood Bath
Number one on our list is from the first movie and has stayed in people’s memories as the bloodiest death in any movie not just this franchise. It’s our guy Glenn getting sucked into a hole in his bed and getting sprayed all over the ceiling of his bed room. “You’re gonna need a mop and bucket not a body bag”. To make this scene they had to turn the room up-side-down and pour the blood through the bed to give the effect it was shooting up to the ceiling. Amazing work by the late great Wes Craven.
I hope you enjoyed reading and watching this article of nostalgic memories as much as I did making it. See you all soon Bitches!
