Confessions of a Horror Icon

The Confession of Fred Krueger

Did you know Freddy Krueger’s middle name is Charles, or that he was originally known as the Springwood Slasher? I’ve watched all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies/sequels and did not know that. Maybe it came up, but I was probably in the kitchen looking for a sandwich of some kind to fill that empty place in my stomach the Elm Street movies left in me.

So why, after 10 movies and a somewhat craptacular TV series in 2005 (A Nightmare on Elm Street: Real Nightmares), am I still feeling unfulfilled? Because there simply wasn’t enough backstory on Freddy. Oh sure, they tried to half-assedly throw something together in the 2010 re-make. But to my sandwich-minded mind, it wasn’t enough.

The Confession of Fred Krueger

Now, with the release of the fan made film The Confession of Fred Krueger, I might be able to get some closure. Debuting at Indianapolis’ Horror Hound Weekend in September, CoFK looks to fill in all the gaping holes in the Freddy Krueger mythology. Here’s what’s in store…

The Confession of Fred Krueger

“The Springwood Police Department has just arrested a man named Fred Krueger, a janitor at the local power plant whom they believe to be the notorious Springwood Slasher. A filthy child murderer who killed 20 children over a five year long reign of terror on the nice suburban Ohio town. Krueger has been brought to the station to be interrogated by the department’s senior lieutenant. Sit down with one of the most charismatic and sinister man to ever walk the earth and hear him tell his story.”

Time to go grocery shopping for some sandwich fixins – don’t want to miss a single bite of this one.
