Freddy Krueger is one of the most iconic horror villains of all-time. With Halloween right around the corner, it’s the perfect time of year for a scary movie marathon. And if your marathon doesn’t include at least one Nightmare on Elm Street film, you’re doing it alllllllll wrong.

The first Nightmare movie was released a whopping 32 years ago, back in 1984. Since then, there have been four proper Nightmare on Elm Street numbered sequels, plus Freddy’s Dead (1991) and Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994). Krueger also appeared in 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason and the franchise reboot in 2010, simply titled A Nightmare on Elm Street again.
