Is Freddy Krueger Real? The True Story That Inspired "A Nightmare on Elm Street"

The Southeast Asian Nightmare Deaths That Inspired Freddy Krueger

The new Freddy Krueger (portrayed by Jackie Earle Haley) features realistic burns, compared to Robert Englund's famous portrayal of Freddy.
The new Freddy Krueger (portrayed by Jackie Earle Haley) features realistic burns, compared to Robert Englund's famous portrayal of Freddy.

With razor sharp claws and singed flesh, Freddy Krueger set out to terrorize a new generation of audiences in Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street in 2010.

A serial killer who specifically targeted children, Freddy is eventually caught for his string of murders in the first A Nightmare on Elm Street. However, he is not convicted for them because of a legal technicality. When he gets out, a group of parents seek vengeance for the lives of their children and set fire to a building with him inside. He dies, but in a horrific twist, his spirit lives on and continues to kill children—only now he kills them in their nightmares.

And while audiences may be thrilled by violent images of the child predator invading the nightmares of Elm Street teens, a question might hold them back from fully enjoying the film: Is Freddy Krueger real? And if not, has there ever been someone who was killed by a nightmare?

Believe it or not, a real-life story out of Southeast Asia actually inspired Wes Craven's Freddy Krueger and the now-infamous series that tells his story.

Is Freddy Krueger Real? The True Story of People in Cambodia Suddenly Dying In Their Sleep

Robert Englund's portrayal of Freddy Krueger.
Robert Englund's portrayal of Freddy Krueger.

In the early 1980s, American newspapers ran a series of short stories chronicling a phenomenon in Southeast Asia that claimed the lives of a number of young adults.

These relatively healthy men, all without a history of mental disorders, began reporting horrific nightmares driving them to forgo sleep in order to avoid these terrors in the REM cycle.

The consumption of coffee and other stimulants helped the men remain awake, initially, but eventually each man went to sleep. Hours later, the men would be found screaming and violently thrashing in their beds before dying from unknown causes.

This phenomenon was covered in the New York Times in an article titled "Nightmares suspected in bed deaths of 18 Laotians":

"We didn't think anything mysterious was afoot until the third and fourth death happened very quickly," Dr. MGee [assistant medical examiner for Ramsey County, Minn.] said, "but then we began to wonder."

He said that his own search of the medical literature had disclosed the startling possibility that the four who died in St. Paul, all apparently healthy young men, might literally have been frightened to death.

When Craven heard about these cases of people dying in their sleep, he was especially intrigued by the fact that, even after autopsies, doctors could not find a reason for death.

The medical journal Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences published an article titled "Is sudden unexplained nocturnal death a breathing disorder?" In it, researchers discuss a condition that eventually became known as sudden unexplained nocturnal death syndrome (SUNDS) and explain that SUNDS is known by various names in Asia: "Lai Tai" in northeastern Thai dialects, "Bangungut" in Tagalog, and "Pokkuri" in Japanese. It usually occurs during the REM cycle of sleep in healthy young male adults. The abstract of the article explains:

The condition has been recognized by the people in the northeastern part of Thailand for many years. Elderly people in the region have described "Lai Tai" victims as making loud groans and showing signs of difficulty in breathing or labored respiration, who become rigid and die. Data, from relatives or those who had witnessed the episodes of deaths, revealed that the deaths usually occurred in the same manner as described by the elderly. The data also reported that the patients were unresponsive and difficult to arouse. From these reports it is likely that the instability of the physiological systems, especially respiration, in particular during the REM phase, may play some roles in precipitating the sudden death.

Some in Southeast Asia believed that demons invaded the dream realm of these men and eventually claimed them in their nightmares. These stories became the foundation for a story Wes Craven would use throughout his career a horror director and producer.

Other Inspirations for Freddy Krueger

Freddy Krueger was also inspired by two people from Craven's childhood: a school bully named Fred Krueger and a gruff homeless man from Craven's town.

The school bully worked the same job as Craven (a paper route), and harassed him for several years. In his very first movie, The Last House on the Left, Craven also used Fred Krueger as inspiration for the villain, naming him Krug Stillo.

As for the homeless man, Craven described their encounter in his DVD commentary for A Nightmare on Elm Street:

When I looked down there was a man very much like Freddy walking along the sidewalk. He must have sensed that someone was looking at him and stopped and looked right into my face. He scared the living daylights out of me, so I jumped back into the shadows. I waited and waited to hear him walk away. Finally I thought he must have gone, so I stepped back to the window. The guy was not only still looking at me but he thrust his head forward as if to say, 'Yes, I'm still looking at you.' The man walked towards the apartment building's entrance. I ran through the apartment to our front door as he was walking into our building on the lower floor. I heard him starting up the stairs. My brother, who is ten years older than me, got a baseball bat and went out to the corridor but he was gone.

Know of any other inspirations for Freddy Krueger? Are there any updates on the causes of unexplained nocturnal death syndrome? Leave a note in the comments.

great hub. although I would like to know where you learned this from though, as I plan on writing a review on the new remake coming out, and I would love to put a back link or link to this hub in the review I write. However, before I can do that, i'll need to confirm your source. Not saying your lying or anything, but I usually like to get my facts straight before writing film reviews. Therefore, I would love to hear where your facts came from, as I would love to backlink this hub to my review one if that's okay.

Freddy Krueger

The fictional character from the box office hit movie, The Nightmare in Elm Street, Freddy Krueger was a nightmare of every kid, teens dream. And Director Wes Craven did a great job in portraying him as just that. He wasn’t truly inspired from a mass murder who could enter your dreams and kill you with his long sharp claws. Something far more worse then that…. it came from Directore/Writer Wes Craven’s personal life. Freddy Krueger was inspired by a school bully who harassed Wes in his high school days. Must be cool to have a mass murdering horror character inspired by yourself, good job school bully.

THE STORY TOLD HERE IS THE TRUE ONE NOT THE ONE ON THIS WEBSITE BUT THE STORY ON THIS WEBSITE MAY BE TRUE BUT THE ONE I HAVE POSTED IS THE TRUE ONE

to unknown caller...

you do realize that what you said as your true story was already posted in this man's story...pay attention and read the whole thing. and to everyone else...he is not saying freddy is real, he is saying that wes was inspired by this story to write the movie...that does not mean he is real bc obviously that is dumb, but maybe this story is true. We will never kno for sure bc we weren't there, but it doesn't hurt to have something to believe in even if it is creepy.

The story is actually based on a few true events.. Some of you guys should Google the case of the " Springwood Slasher" Killer. Of course he was just a creepy child stalker and killer.. The whole dream killer thing is made up, but there's always made up parts in "true stories" if not then they're not as good to watch on the big screen.. #Justsaying

Yeah when I was younger I seen every one of these movies, I had the nightmares, but it didn't stop me from sleeping and I continued to watch them. Now that I an adult I own every one of the movies and I laugh at them more than anything. Freddy is awesome, Robert Englund is a great actor. And I still have dreams with Freddy, but when I wake up I laugh about it, it doesn't bother me.

michael 2 years ago

I dreamt of Freddy before the movie came out. In my dream, thisdark guy with a hat and stripes was scuttling around my room flattening out and lashing at me from under the bed and slipping behind the book shelf. His claws on one hand were 3 feet long and hooked like wes craven's original design. Years later, I was walking through the neighborhood late at night, crossing a local street called elm st.when I realized I had started running before realizing I heard a noise a few houses away of the scraping noise on the drain pipe of someone's gutter! I ran through the yards and continued to hear it on the next street. Running through the next yard I got caught in the treeline, stuck in the brambles. I was never so afraid in my whole life. Whatever it was chasing me was the true embodiment of fear.

He is real and for those of you who don't believe that's good he can't hurt you if you don't believe but for the few who do believe becarful that's how he gets in. I should when I was younger he came for me twice both times I had a witness the thing is just by me telling you this just like me I would never believe it. But its not going change the fact that it happened I saw him I felt him I fought for my life and im still here the question is am I the only one or are there more people out there like me and if so where is he now?


price 22 months ago

They got rid of my post so what I said they don't want you all to know watch out he's still here FREDDY KRUEGER he never left. Think about it all movies have some truth to it, so does this there really is an elm street there were real deaths. Everything else would not be in the headlines why they don't want to alarm the public some people wouldn't be able to handle it. It happen to me and some of my friends but we can't remember were not supposed to but ive been remembering little by little each day im sure the others too.

Hello I have been searching the web for any information on others who have had nightmares about freddy before watching the movie (or having any knowledge of it) this happened to both me and a friend of mine.

I am not trying to convince anyone anything. No there isn't a way for me to prove this to the skeptics. In fact before I experienced these things I would not have believed them. The reason I'm writting this is to find out if anyone els experienced what we did.
