We all know and love Freddy Krueger, the wise-cracking star of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, but did you know the character has real world roots? Tonight, Host Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Kristen discuss the origin of Wes Craven's most famous creation, Freddy Krueger!

We'll talk about how he got his name, what true life events caused Craven to make him slightly less horrifying than he originally planed, what inspired Freddy's icon glove, and what terrifying childhood event inspired Freddy's famous sweater and fedora style.

But where it really gets interesting is what inspired Wes Craven to turn Freddy into a murderer who attacks in your dreams! An amazing true life mystery that science has no answer for...but folklore does!

Also discussed: Meeting Freddy for the first time, Last House on the Left, Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Death Syndrome, nightmare, pressing demons, shadow people, Hmong refugees, and how your cat may be planning to kill you!
