Who's the best Freddy Krueger? That's not a difficult question to answer... you know in your blackened horror heart it's Robert Englund!

After the man himself recently spoke about maybe returning to play Freddy Krueger, it seemed only appropriate to review again just HOW VITAL Robert Englund is to the role...

No disrespect to Jackie Earl Haley's performance in the 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street remake, but Robert Englund just IS Freddy for thousands of horror fans! Here's why...

1. He can really do SCARY

2. The party don't start 'til he walks in

3. He delivers one-liners like a legend

4. He's not afraid to get seriously dark

5. He can do comedy amazingly, too

6. This guy makes a child-killer LIKABLE!

7. His timing, his presence, his skill are everything

8. Nobody can imitate that confidence

9. If things get a little weird, he still makes it believable

10. He's never truly out of character!

Robert Englund will always be Freddy Krueger!
