Freddy Krueger's (Robert Englund) a proven child killer, and yet after his trial he goes free as it's proven the arresting officer, Lt. Blocker (Ian Patrick Williams) dod not follow protocol when arresting him - which has to do with Freddy having threatened Blocker's twin daughters (Gry and Hili Park). Seeing Freddy still on the loose, some inhabitants of his hometown band together to track down and lynch him, something Blocker manages to prevent only just - but then Freddy insults him and Blocker himself sets Freddy on fire. A few days later Blocker learns that the FBI wants to look into the Krueger case, and he confesses to his deputy (Mark Herrier) what he and the lynch mob have done - and the deputy tells him it was the right thing to do and promises to hide the body. But of course, Freddy comes back to haunt Blocker in his dreams ...

 

By the late 1980s, Freddy Krueger was at the height of his popularity, the Nightmare on Elm Street movies were still box office draws, and the series had become a bit of a cash cow - so to have Freddy host a TV anthology series was of course a good idea, and to tell his origin story in episode one seems to be the logical thing to do, especially when directed by a horror legend like Tobe Hooper. Unfortunately, what sounds good in writing doesn't always hold its promise on screen, as this episode shows, a soulless retelling of the first Nightmare on Elm Street, with all the mystery and indeed magic gone, replaced by TV drama mainstays, and due to the show's predictability there's little in terms of horror or shocks. Basically, something everyone could have done without.
