Description: One, two, Freddy’s coming for you. Three, four better lock your door. Five, six grab your crucifix. Seven, eight gonna stay up late. Nine, ten never sleep again! That is the famous nursery rhyme from one of the best horror films of all time, A Nightmare on Elm St. The serial killer in the movie was Freddy Krueger and he was created by the very talented Wes Craven. The movie hit theaters back in 1984 and it was the most talked about horror film during the eighties. The actor that played Freddy in all seven films was Robert Englund and I have to say he is probably one of the best serial killer performers that I have ever seen. Not only is he creepy, but he is also very energetic, comical, and ruthless. This tutorial will show you “how to draw Freddy Krueger” step by step. Now Freddy was or is a character that was executed by all the parents that lived on Elm St. because he was kidnapping kids and killing them. It was never said if Krueger molested the children or not, just that he was definitely killing neighborhood children. How and where did he tale these children you ask? Well from what the movie explains Freddy would abduct children and then take them to where he worked which was a power plant. He lured the kids into the basement of the power plant and then killed them in the boiler room. He was later arrested and convicted for the murder of twenty children but some how he walked free. Almost every parent on Elm St. conspired to make Krueger pay for his crimes so what they did was set his house on fire and he and the house burned to the ground obviously killing Fred Krueger in the process. Wes Cravens creation of Freddy Krueger was brilliantly done. He made the character with a burnt scared up face, he wore a dingy brown fedora hat, his famous red and green striped sweater, and his notorious killing tool; a glove that was made by Krueger that had elongated razor sharp knives that he controlled with his fingers. His whole purpose in the movie is to get revenge on the towns people by killing off their children. Now it is said that Krueger was born to a nun named “Sister Mary Helena” or Amanda Krueger. She was rapped by one hundred maniacs and her basted child was the result of her rap. Anyways, I’m done talking about children dying and nuns being rapped, I just want to show you “how to draw Freddy Krueger step by step“. Have fun ya’ll and peace out. I will be back in a bit.
