The Nightmare On Elm Street franchise is unquestionably one of the most iconic of all time. Freddy Krueger has a body count that is surpassed by very little. Though, one thing that was always oddly missing from most of the NOES movies was promiscuity and nudity (and no, the Gym Teachers ass in part 2 doesn’t count). While franchises like Friday The 13th had boobs and blood by the barrels NOES was abnormally scarce in that area. That isn’t to say that the franchise didn’t have its share of hot chicks; quite the opposite.
Though the majority of the hottest woman of the franchise were “last girls” or survivors, we are going to be looking at the ones who fell victim to Freddy. Strangely enough after doing a quick retrospective we realized that Freddy failed to kill any ladies in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare or Freddy vs. Jason; so those two movies are obviously not included. Let’s look at the 10 hottest Freddy Krueger victims.
10. Jennifer – A Nightmare on Elm Street 3
Portrayed by Penelope Sudrow
More cute than sexy, Jennifer Caulfield is a patient at Westin Hills. She had aspirations of being a film and TV star; sadly her “big break on TV” wasn’t quite what she had intended. Despite putting cigarettes out on her arm in order to stay awake; she falls asleep. While watching TV she notices Freddy appear on the screen briefly. She approaches the TV, unaware she is dreaming, and as she advances, the TV sprouts arms and Freddy’s head. The arms lifts her off the ground as Freddy proclaims “Welcome to primetime bitch!”. He slams her head into the TV screen, fatally electrocuting her.
9. Sheila – A Nightmare On Elm Street 4
Portrayed by Toy Newkirk
Sheila was meant to be a nerd of sorts, but underneath those glasses and geekdom she was actually pretty hot. After she falls asleep in school, Freddy is sitting in the classroom apple In hand. In one of the most awesome Freddy deaths he grabs her and asks if she wants to “suck face” before sucking the life right out of her.
8. Taryn – A Nightmare on Elm Street 3
Portrayed by Jennifer Rubin
Taryn is ex-junkie who finds herself in Westin Hills after a few run-ins with Freddy. She has a long history with drugs and is overall a pretty messed up girl. Though, in her dreams she is beautiful and “bad”. She transforms into a punk beauty, complete with a Mohawk and switchblades. Sadly, she is no match for Freddy. After subduing her he changes the blades on his glove into syringes and injects her with some weird green chemical, killing her. What a rush!
7. Debbie – A Nightmare On Elm Street 4
Portrayed by Brooke Theiss
Addicted to working out, Debbie doesn’t “believe” in Freddy. Well, he believed in her, using her phobia against bugs against her. He turns her into a roach in a roach motel and squashes her like a bug. They check in but they don’t check out.
6. Greta – A Nightmare On Elm Street 5
Portrayed by Erika Anderson
A girl with supermodel ambitions and an overbearing mother Greta had a lot of poor little rich girl problems. In particular her weight and eating habits were always being scrutinized. When she falls asleep at the dinner table Freddy promptly force feeds her until she keels over and dies. Bon appetit.
5. Tina – A Nightmare On Elm Street
Portrayed by: Portrayed by Amanda Wyss
Tina was the first girl to die in the original Nightmare On Elm Street. After having some very loud sex with boyfriend Rod, she falls asleep. Freddy brutally kills her in her sleep; dragging her body up walls and across the ceiling. Blame falls on her boyfriend Rod and he is consequently arrested. TIIINNNAAA!!!!
4. Julia – Wes Craven’s New Nightmare
Portrayed by Tracy Middendorf
New Nightmare is probably the most underrated of the entire franchise. Many actors are simply playing themselves, from Wes Craven, Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp and others. Julia is the babysitter for Langenkamp and young son Dylan. Freddy is eventually able to attack her in the real world, murdering her in a manner similar to that of Tina in the original film. You ever play “skin the cat”?
3. Kristen – A Nightmare On Elm Street 4
Portrayed by Tuesday Knight
Kristin is first introduced in Elm Street 3; originally portrayed by Patricia Arquette. She just barely lives to tell the tale. In part 4 she was portrayed by Tuesday Knight. She ultimately meets her demise at the hands of Freddy by being thrown into the boiler room incinerator.
2. Kris – A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)
Portrayed by: Katie Cassidy
The remake/reboot for a Nightmare On Elm Street was horrible, nobody can deny that. Katie Cassidy is incredibly hot; this is also a fact. Cassidy plays Kris (the role of Tina in the original film). She meets her demise in a similar way; except way too much CGI.
1. Nancy Thompson – A Nightmare on Elm Street, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3
Portrayed by Heather Langenkamp
Nancy was the first girl to go up against Freddy and live to tell about it. Heather Langenkamp would reprise her role as Nancy in Dream Warriors where she would ultimately meet her demise. Nancy is the most memorable and the most sexy of all the Elm street victims. Her everyday girl look was something to be coveted. Even though she ultimately dies she does get her revenge (sort of) in Wes Craven’s New Nightmare where Heather would be playing herself playing Nancy (or something).
