Freddy Krueger – “A Nightmare on Elm Street” Marionette Puppet


Of all the 80s horror icons, Freddy Krueger is perhaps one of the most enduring, both in our hearts and fears and especially our dreams. Immortalised in the Nightmare on Elm Street series of films, Freddy’s severely burned countenance and fabricated glove with razor fingers has made a unique impression in the world of slasher flicks, especially for his supernatural ability to eschew the mortal realm and do his terror stalking in a place we humans find ourselves most vulnerable: the subconscious landscapes of the Dream World.

He was brought to life by the talents of actor Robert Englund who invested in Freddy a kind of twisted humour to accommodate the graphic violence and so gave voice to a new breed of antagonist in creating a dialogue between predator and prey, killer and victim, not previously explored in similar movies of the time.

Like many of the franchises spawned from these antihero maniacs, he has since appeared in tv series, countless sequels and reboots plus the print media of comics and immersive computer gaming.

Halloween Horror Show: Frightening can be fun!

It’s no surprise that many people find marionettes creepy or scary, no matter how cute you try to make them. And so it is with no small relish that I find myself indulging the darker side of story and my own fascination with the macabre in creating a range of puppets to celebrate the shadows and the sinister. Here, horror icons from the silver screen rub shoulders with other things of nightmare in a grand monster mash of ghoulish celebration. Enter if you dare – here there be monsters!

Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung.
