Description[edit | edit source]

A small suburban area, Elm Street has come to be known as the territorial killing field of the demonic dream entity known as Freddy Krueger. Notable locales include the boiler room where Freddy Krueger once worked and served as the lair wherein he brought kidnapped children before killing them. The Lantz residence - home to the late Glen Lantz and his parents, Mister and Mrs. Lantz is located at 1419 Elm Street. The Gray residence, where Tina Gray was murdered is located at 620 Elm Street. The Thompson family lived at 1428 Elm Street up until the time of the first nightmare murders. Residents included Marge Thompson, her husband, Sheriff Donald Thompson (up until his divorce), and daughter Nancy Thompson.

Although Elm Street is traditionally the territory lorded over by Freddy Krueger, it was also a one-time stomping ground for East Coast serial killer Jason Voorhees. Guided by Krueger's actions, Voorhees broke into the residence at 1428 Elm Street and murdered a boy named Trey Cooper. [1]
