As Seen In: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Due to his dreamworld existence, Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is able to kill his sleeping victims in totally inhuman (but imaginative) ways. And over the course of nine films, the undead burn victim/child molester has consistently one-upped himself by using all kinds of inanimate objects to his deadly advantage. Yet, despite all of his murderous innovation, it's Freddy's first-ever (on screen, at least) kill that remains his most chilling. Best of all, it's one of his simplest executions.
Sleeping comfortably alongside her boyfriend, Tina (Amanda Wyss) confronts Freddy in her nightmare, and, subsequently, gets yanked up the bedroom wall and across the ceiling. As Rod (Nick Corri) helplessly watches, Tina's flesh rips open, the work of an unseen blade. Her life comes to an end as she collapses into a bloody heap.
