15 Of Freddy Krueger’s Most Devastating Puns

List RulesVote up Freddy's most soul-destroying zingers.

The Nightmare on Elm Street legacy began in 1984 when horror master Wes Craven brought the story of a burned-up maniac who slashes teens in their sleep to the big screen. Since then, Freddy Krueger has gone on to become one of the most iconic villains in cinema history. 

But it is Freddy Krueger's sense of humor that sets him apart from other movie monsters. You’re certainly not going to hear Jason Vorhees or Leatherface recite silly puns while they slash teens.

It’s not often that horror fans get a maniac with personality. And while Krueger’s punny repertoire would never slay in a stand-up routine, he certainly kills on-screen. But which of Freddy's puns are the most devastating? 

Vote up your favorite Freddy one-liners. It will be a total scream.
