Freddy Krueger is the evil child murderer and dream demon from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and was the creation of Wes Craven.

After going on trial for multiple murders, Fred Krueger was released on a technicality (the police bungled his arrest) and the horrified townspeople of Springwood took the law into their own hands and killed Freddy by covering him with petrol/gas and setting light to him. Instead of putting an end to his killing, Freddy's evil is so great that he was endowed with power to control the dream world and from there he is able to kill as he wishes whilst his victims sleep and if he kills them whilst they sleep they die in the material world.

Freddy's weapon of choice is a self made gauntlet that he made himself from an old glove and four razor sharp blades that he attached to the glove with interlocking metal sections and rivets that he crafted before his death. Freddy appears in his victims dreams wearing the glove, a tattered old red and green striped jumper and a brown fedora which he was wearing at the time of his death. Despite numerous unsuccesful attempts to end his astral existence virtually all of the children of Springwood were slain and plenty of the grown ups too. No matter how many times they try to kill the bastard son of a hundred maniacs he manages to continue his onslaught, is there truly no end to Krueger's evil and can all we hope for is a mere reprieve from inevitable death.
