Robert Englund is Freddy Krueger and no one can do a better job. Jackie Earle Haley played the iconic horror movie villain but it was not the same. Freddy Krueger has become one of the top horror movie villains because he is demented, twisted and gruesome. Death is fun to Freddy Krueger and to him, being something of a dream demon, your nightmares belong to him.

7). A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)Our Score: 5/10 IMDB Score: 5.3/10
This Freddy Krueger movie puts you in an inner battle with a male teenager whom freddy possesses from time to time to wreak havoc on the kids of Elm Street. I didn't like this one to much. I thought A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) was totally different from what I liked about the first Freddy Krueger movie. There were many undertones that made this horror movie seem more weird than enjoyable. Writer David Chaskin and director Jack Sholder made a complete mess in my opinion. Freddy Krueger coming out to possess a young boy was a good…
6). A Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy's Dead (1991)Our Score: 7/10 IMDB Score: 4.9/10
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) is an American comedy thriller horror movie that is also known as A Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy's Dead The Final Nightmare (1991). This movie was intended to be the last in its series, but it did so well Wes Craven's New Nightmare was made and became New Line Cinema's first 3D movie release. Director and writer Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl (1995), Wildfire (2005), What About Brian (2006)) did a fantastic job with this horror slasher classic. My review might be biased because I am a huge fan of the Nightmare on Elm…
5). A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)Our Score: 7/10 IMDB Score: 5.1/10
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989) is an American thriller horror movie that is 89 minutes long and was filmed in Los Angeles, California, USA. Director Stephen Hopkins (Lost in Space (1998), Predator 2 (1990), The Ghost and the Darkness (1996), Under Suspicion (2000)) did a fantastic job executing this terrifying movie that I enjoyed immensely. I am a huge Freddy fan and have seen all the movies in its franchise. This movie was made right after the success of its predecessor and did really well. The director displays his skills by using different camera angles…
4). A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)Our Score: 8/10 IMDB Score: 5.6/10
Another compelling story where the last "survivor" from part three passes her "power" to her wimpy friend. This friend, Alice, is able to bring those around her into her dreams so that Freddy feasts on their souls while she gets their special abilities to fight Freddy. Witness this showdown.
3). A Nightmare on Elm Street 7: New Nightmare (1994)Our Score: 8/10 IMDB Score: 6.4/10
The true final installment to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. This has the lead star (Heather Langenkamp) from the first movie as a regular person living her life as a movie star when things start to go wrong and Freddy Krueger brings himself to life. Wes Craven took the directors seat in this horror movie to revitalize Freddy Krueger as an evil entity and bring the fear back. Not a bad try but what is Freddy without the comedy, one bad dream demon. As movies go, this installment was a try at revamping scary Freddy from the first movie…
2). A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)Our Score: 9/10 IMDB Score: 6.6/10
A great movie that takes us back to the first cast. The star from the first movie is back to help the kids of a asylum complaining that they don't want to sleep because "He" will get them. A great story that will terrify you.
1). A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)Our Score: 8/10 IMDB Score: 7.5/10
The first in the Freddy Krueger line of Nightmare on Elm Street movies. This one has a teenager who discovers that people can be murdered in their dreams by this boogie man, Freddy Krueger. You must see this so that you can know why Freddy got so popular and spawned so many horror movies. The classic long armed Freddy (Robert Englund) running down the street and the iconic rotating room splashed in blood make this horror movie a true classic. I remember watching the school scene with the dead girl thinking that is so scary, I was little at that…
