Elm Street Wiki

The Life and Death of Freddy Krueger is a story in The Nightmares on Elm Street Parts 1, 2, 3: The Continuing Story. It is clearly a different story than the A Nightmare on Elm Street (film series) film series.


  • It states that Freddy Krueger was born at 1428 Elm Street. It states that 1428 Elm Street was an insane asylum. It doesn't actually state that this insane asylum was the Hathaway House.
  • It states that his mother was a schizophrenic. Apparently, she was a patient at the asylum. It isn't actually stated that her name was Amanda, Krueger or otherwise.
