Tie Ins: Nightmare on Elm Street

Freddy Kreuger began as a slapstick vaudevillian and only got worse from there.  His wise cracking is personally responsible for the death of 80s film horror.  Having said that, all the parts without Freddy can be genuinely creepy, and the series is begging for a fan edit.

The various novelizations and continuations look intriguing, but they all cost way too much.  The links are to Amazon, if anyone richer than me wants to throw some affiliate money my way.

Here are the adultish novelizations - note there are none I could find for Part 6 and the 2010 reboot.

Additionally, there are several short, young adult adaptations.

A 1991 short story anthology Nightmares on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger's Seven Sweetest Dreams edited by Martin K. Greenberg,

Freddy Kreuger's Tales of Terror was a young adult series with stories hosted by Freddy, published by Tor from 1994-1995.

Black Flame published several continuing stories.
