DID YOU KNOW….
That the Horror Film Character Freddy Kruger was loosely based on a real life serial killer who lived in Houston, Tx in the 1800s. According to court records of the time, Mr. Kruger was known to have killed at least twenty children within a three mile radius of where he lived. He reportedly murdered most of the children using only a Gardening claw. He lived inside an old abandoned cement factory north of town… where he would bring his victims… having set up a small living space (and torture area) within the “mechanical room” of the facility. Oh yeah…back then, a “mechanical room” was also known as a “boiler room”. Mr. Kruger was eventually caught by his own recourse by accidentally starting a fire in a portion of the factory where he burned over 70% of his body. While in the hospital recovering Police investigated & he was Arrested after they found his room of horrors, he was tried, but found to be criminally insane. He spent the rest of his life in a Psychiatric Hospital before dying in his sleep at the old age of 72. But shortly after his death a string of unexpected deaths weirdly occurred in Houston involving young teenagers & children while they were sleeping in their beds, before they died a few parents said their children would wake up in the middle of the night from the night terrors to what they called a burned & scary old man with a claw was trying to kill them and refused to go back to sleep….we now know why….
To this day (and LONG before the Elm St. films) Houston has since became a ghost town where all residents have long moved away in Fear that it was haunted by the ghost of Freddy Kruger.
