With a kill count of less than 50 across 9 films and 3 decades, the legendary horror franchise A Nightmare on Elm Street seems quite timid when compared with it's newer and shinier competitors.

But, as all true Elm Street fans know, the greatness of the series stems not from the number of deaths but from the sheer brutality of them, and tension that precedes them.

Before we begin, get yourself in the macabre mood with this excellent fan-made super-cut of every single one of Freddy's victims.

Not only that, the franchise has killed off some truly great actors - Johnny Depp, to name just one. So, just for you, I have compiled a "then vs. now" list of every single one of Freddy's victims.
