A Nightmare On Elm Street

Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare On Elm Street is among the most terrifying horror movie villains. He cannot be escaped because he lurks in your dreams. Writer and director Wes Craven named Freddy after a childhood bully, but the inspiration for the story is far scarier.

While reading the LA Times, Craven came across a series of articles detailing a condition called sudden unexpected nocturnal death syndrome (SUNDS) which was killing young men.

The victims were largely of Southeast Asian descent, many of them refugees from conflicts like the Vietnam War and the deadly reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

Of course, these men were not struck down by dream-dwelling monsters, but a legitimate medical condition. According to cardiology professor Matteo Vatta, the deaths occur during sleep because the heart slows down, making any inherent issues more likely to occur.
