Frederick "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the 2010 remake of the 1984 horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street.

He is a sadistic pedophile who enjoyed luring children to his secret cave where he would molest, torture and take pictures of them. After learning of this, the parents of the children burned him alive. Somehow, he returned as a vengeful spirit that had the ability to enter and manipulate dreams.

He was portrayed by Jackie Earle Haley.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Unlike his original counterpart, he is taken 100% seriously.
  • He's a pedophile (in addition, the original version only has some slight hints of being this).
  • Unlike his original counterpart, he lacks any sort of Freudian Excuse for his actions, although it's mainly due to his backstory never being mentioned.
  • He faked kindness to gain the trust of parents and children so he could molest them.
  • Besides molesting the kids, he would also torture them by cutting their backs with his clawed glove as part of a sadistic fetish.
  • He not only molested and tortured kids, but he also took pictures.
  • He kills twelve people in his revenge plan in gruesome ways.
  • While he was technically unjustly lynched and killed by the parents instead of being given a fair trial, he subverts any possible small modicum of sympathy this could give him by not only going after the children of the parents instead of the parents themselves but being incredibly sadistic about it and taking joy in his killings.
  • Kills Dean in the real world by forcing his sleeping body to slit his own throat and stage Dean's murder as a suicide.
  • He punctures Jesse's heart and taunts him that his brain will stay alive for seven more minutes, allowing Freddy to continue to torture him some more.
  • He plans to cause Nancy to fall into a permanent coma so he can keep her as his sex toy for the rest of her life and sexually abuse her all he wants.
  • By the end of the film he kills Nancy's mother in front of her and gets away with all of his crimes.
