There is no arguing that Freddy Krueger is one of the biggest horror icons in history, but in my opinion you're still not crap until you earn the title of Official Traumatizer from one of the best horror websites on the Internet, Kindertrauma.com.
Check out Freddy's official induction as an Official Traumatizer here, then do yourself a favor and check out the rest of Kindertrauma. You will NOT be disappointed.
"I’m sure I do not have to bend over backwards to convince any of you of Freddy Krueger’s rightful place within the ranks of Kindertrauma’s official TRAUMATIZERS. As portrayed by ROBERT ENGLUND, Freddy is one of the world’s most recognizable horror icons and over the last couple decades, has slashed himself a permanent position in to the public’s consciousness. His persona, a trickster ghoul who haunts dreams, perfectly captures the fears of every child who ever suffered a sleepless night . It almost seems as if he always existed in some form or another and was just waiting for NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET creator WES CRAVEN to give him a name."
