Elm Street Wiki

Baby Freddy is a form of Freddy Krueger in The Dream Child. He appears in Freddy's Rebirth sequence and the Final Battle scene.


The Dream Child

Baby Freddy appears in a dream sequence where Alice follows Amanda Krueger into the surrealistic version of the Westin Hills Psychiatric Hospital. There, Amanda gives birth to Freddy, who runs out of the room and into the church altar where Alice defeated Freddy in the previous film. Baby Freddy crawls up to a pedestal, where he lets out a supersonic scream, causing a window to break, various debris to fall, and the floor to rise up. Baby Freddy crawls into the sweater, the pedestal rises and Baby Freddy turns into the adult Freddy Krueger, thus bringing Freddy back to life again.

At the end of the film, Freddy is reverted back in Baby Freddy as a result of Jacob Daniel Johnson's dream power, and Amanda forces the infant back inside of her by turning him into energy and absorbing him.


  • Although Baby Freddy vaguely resembles post-death Freddy because of the burn wounds, the next film shows that Freddy Krueger was a normal-looking child (as well as a normal-looking teenager and a normal-looking adult). The deformed appearance may be a reflection of his evil soul.
