Freddy Krueger is the terrifying villain of "The Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise, which boasts ten films. The first was released in 1984, while the most recent came out in 2010.

As Kreuger's story goes, during the 1960s, in the town of Springwood, he murdered multiple children, and although arrested, managed to evade prison. This injustice led to the parents in the town taking the issue into their own hands by setting the murderer alight and thereby killing him.

Later, the story of Krueger slowly transformed into an urban legend. However, he returned to life in children's nightmares, where he murdered them, and these deaths translated to real life. Read these 54 quotes by this psychopath.

The question then becomes, what could inspire the creation of such a dark and psychopathic villain? According to the writer, who spoke to Vulture, he conjured the story and character up from a story he read of a family whose son was having terrible night terrors.

The kid chose to stay awake for many days, terrified that he would be caught by something in his nightmares. Eventually, he slept, only to be met with a nightmare again. However, this time, after hearing the child scream out in his sleep, the parents found him dead in his bed.

To dive deeper into another villain who is slightly less horrifying yet still intriguing, read these quotes from Oogie Boogie, the monster of "A Nightmare Before Christmas."
