Once upon a time Mr. Fred Krueger was a vile son-of-a-bitch with a sense of humor about as thick as fishing line. Of course, that all changed when New Line released A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge. Krueger’s character trantioned from a hellish being with menace in his mouth to standup comedian in training, in the short span of one ngle year.
While I prefer my nightmares on the dark de, I’ve never had a legitimate problem with Fred going funny; somehow, it made a nister villain likeable, and hey, who doesn’t enjoy a joke or two in their horror? I like to believe the recent franchise reboot will keep the character on the straight path as more sequels follow, but who really knows what to expect these days?
Pretending for a moment that the comedy routine has been permanently delined, I’m going to revit the original run now, and highlight the comedy that we may never receive from the contemporary vion. So, join me, as I count down Fred’s 15 best quotes!
