Elm Street Wiki

This is about the Freddy Krueger of the A Nightmare on Elm Street novel Suffer the Children. If you are looking for one or more other versions of Freddy Krueger, please check Freddy Krueger (disambiguation).

Freddy Krueger is a serial killer and the main antagonist of Suffer the Children.


He is explicitly stated to have been a pedophile and child molester in life. Death didn't change his sexual orientation.

The whole Springwood Police Department was fully aware that he was going to be burned to death before he was. Some of it's members participated and the rest looked the other way.

He died in a burn unit at Springwood General Hospital, after having been there for three days, and spiritually haunts the burn unit. Obviously, his body was never hidden by Donald Thompson or anyone else, anywhere. Presumably, his body was given a legal burial.


Powers and Abilities[]

He has the ability to possess corpses other than his own. He may have the ability to possess his own corpse. Since his corpse was probably buried in a coffin and put six feet under ground, this ability would be pretty useless.

He has the ability to take on a physical form in the physical world, at least under certain circumstances.


It is strongly hinted that he looks very similar to the way he does in the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series.
