Freddy Krueger

The Springwood Slasher, The Dream Demon and the one this list is all about!

My favorite slasher!
Average listal rating (16 ratings) 8.9  IMDB Rating
1. Freddy Krueger
1) Robert Englund
2) Roberto Lombardi
3) Jackie Earle Haley

With all due respect to the other actors, these actors are the ones I feel are most relevant to the character.

DebbieDPhilly's rating:

Robert Englund


The first and best! Robert originated the character and made Freddy the horror icon he is today! He is simply the best at being Freddy!

"A Nightmare on Elm Street"
"ANOES 2: Freddy's Revenge"
"ANOES 3: Dream Warriors"
"ANOES 4: The Dream Master"
"ANOES 5: The Dream Child"
"Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare"
"Wes Craven's New Nightmare"
"Freddy vs. Jason"
"Freddy's Nightmares"
Average listal rating (207 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
2. Robert Englund

DebbieDPhilly's rating:

Roberto Lombardi


Roberto Lombardi is the only actor I've seen that has the right look and acting talent to really play Freddy Krueger other than Robert Englund.

"Krueger (A Tale from Elm Street)"
"The Nightmare Ends on Halloween II"
"Deadpool: The Webseries"
"Krueger (Another Tale from Elm Street)"
"Krueger (A Walk Through Elm Street)"
Average listal rating (5 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
3. Roberto Lombardi

DebbieDPhilly's rating:

Jackie Earle Haley


I have mixed feeling about the remake of "A Nightmare on Elm Street". I think Jackie Earle Haley is a great actor, but I didn't like the changes that were made to Freddy and the Elm Street story.

"A Nightmare on Elm Street" (2010)
Average listal rating (144 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
4. Jackie Earle Haley

DebbieDPhilly's rating:

Tobe Sexton


I like how he played teenaged Freddy! Good actor, but he doesn't look enough like Robert Englund to convice me he's Freddy at a younger age.

"Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare"
Average listal rating (0 ratings) 0  IMDB Rating
5. Tobe Sexton

Richard Myles


Though I loved the movie he was in, I felt this was more of a Freddy impersonation than an actor really becoming the role.

"The Nightmare Ends on Halloween"
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
6. Richard Myles


Freddy Krueger is my favorite slasher and the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" series is probably my favorite horror series ever!

Here is a list of the actors who have portrayed the dream demon and my thoughts on their performance!

I will update as I see more actors in the role or with your suggestions!
