The latest reboot to hit movie theaters, A Nightmare on Elm Street, comes out this week. Freddy Krueger is one of the biggest icons of horror thanks to Robert Englund’s creepy portrayal of him over the years, and now Jackie Earle Haley takes over the role to continue the legacy. Here are ten fans’ tributes to the disfigured dream invader.
