YOU vs FREDDY KRUEGER -How Can You Defeat and Survive It? (A Nightmare on Elm Street)


It’s late at night and you’re feeling sleepy. As you tuck into bed, you start getting drowsy
and slip off into a deep slumber- but suddenly instead of a pleasant dream you find yourself
in a dark, steamy boiler room… and standing in front of you is a familiar figure with
a black fedora and bladed glove. Do you stand a chance against him? That’s what we’ll find out, in this episode
of The Infographics Show- You vs Freddy Krueger- Could You Defeat Him? Freddy Krueger was a normal family man with
a loving family; though under this secret facade, he was a depraved serial killer who
stalked the children of his former classmates, all of whom had taunted and ridiculed him
throughout school, making his life hell. Torturing and killing the children, he spread
their remains throughout town and became known as the Springwood Slasher. Eventually he was caught by the police, though
a faulty arrest warrant saw him released on a technicality. The town took justice into their own hands
and burned Freddy alive in his boiler room, though as he succumbed to the flames, he was
approached by three Dream Demons who offered him the power to stalk and kill through dreams. Accepting, Freddy became a Dream Demon himself,
empowered by fear and gaining power by absorbing the souls of his victims. So, say you find yourself face to face in
the middle of a nightmare with the fabled Dream Demon Freddy Krueger- how could you
defeat him? The first strategy will be to remain awake
as long as possible, as Freddy is powerless in the real world and can only strike at you
from within your own dreams. One good way to stop yourself from falling
asleep is the use of amphetamines such as aderral or speed. As a stimulant, amphetamines speed up messages
traveling between the brain and body, and taken in large doses have the side effect
of making it very difficult to go to sleep while retaining a decent amount of energy. If illegal drugs aren’t your thing, you can
try legal drugs such as Modafinil, or perhaps just take your chances popping caffeine tablets. However, too much caffeine in your system
can lead to irregular heartbeat and seizures, and staying awake for too long can lead to
serious mental disorders such as paranoia, depression, hallucinations, and even psychosis. So you’re staying awake via a steady stream
of caffeine pills or a few hits of amphetamines every few hours- what now? Well your first tactic could be to try to
find Freddy’s remains and have them blessed by a priest. As Freddy still has the soul of a man, he
is technically being possessed by the Dream Demons, and as such vulnerable to a Rite of
Exorcism. It’s not as easy as just sprinkling some holy
water on a bunch of burnt bones though- due to a rise in the demand for exorcisms in recent
years, the Vatican recently held a week long conference to address the rising tide of exorcisms
and discuss concerns over the uneven skills of the Vatican’s current exorcists. The church warns that would-be exorcists should
apprentice under an experienced exorcist, and the risks of conducting an exorcism while
unprepared can be dire. Perhaps though you can use the threat of exorcism
to lure Freddy into the real world. As a Dream Demon, Freddy has no more power
in the real world than you do, and luring him into reality- or forcing him into it-
will completely take away his powers. However, be warned- he may not have supernatural
powers anymore, but he is still armed with a very dangerous glove full of razor sharp
knives. You can try and take Freddy out one-on-one
with some karate skills, but we recommend instead something far simpler: a Smith & Wesson
Model 629. Armed with a .44 Magnum round, the 629 is
a highly portable and extremely powerful sidearm carried by many American hunters for self-defense
against bears in the wild. Capable of creating an exit wound several
inches wide, simply follow the old shooter’s adage: two in the chest and one in the head,
and Freddy will be no more. But suppose you accidentally fell asleep and
Freddy lured you into one of his signature nightmares- what then? The best, and simplest defense against Freddy
is actually quite simple: don’t be afraid of him. As a Dream Demon, Freddy is unable to harm
his victims without first cultivating an aura of fear. Freddy accomplishes this by haunting his subjects
for weeks, gradually building a sense of dread within them that empowers him. Once the fear has grown strong enough, it’s
a simple matter for Freddy to kill his victim. So your best defense is to simply not be afraid
of him. The best way to overcome your fear is 6 tricks
used by military veterans around the world: 6. Prepare and Practice- by mentally preparing
yourself for your confrontation with Freddy you can diminish the fear once it actually
goes down. Per US Navy SEAL Platoon Commander James Waters,
Navy SEALs spend 75% of their time training for a deployment, and 25% of their time on
the actual deployment. Once in the midst of a confrontation you’ve
been preparing for, you’ll naturally slip into a state of preparedness, greatly reducing
fear. 5. Laugh- A Stanford University study revealed
that people who were trained to make jokes in response to disturbing images dealt with
them in a much better way than those who didn’t. Laughing can also release feel-good chemicals
such as endorphin in the brain, furthering lightening your mood and decreasing the fear. Maybe try picturing Freddy naked…. or on
second thought, maybe not. 4. Breathing- Fear manifests itself physically
with a racing heart and pouring sweat. You can fight these physical manifestation
by lapsing into a pattern of very deep breaths. Inhale for four seconds and exhale for four
seconds, calming your nervous system and putting you back in control. 3. Voice in your head – We’ve all experienced
the nagging voice of doubt deep in our brains during stressful times. In moments of fear, that voice can become
amplified and completely override your own thinking. Tell it to shut up. Mentally shout over these thoughts like many
soldiers, who shout words like “faster” to themselves in order to shift their focus
from the fear. 2. Worst Case Scenario- Much like the first tip
to prepare and practice, imagining the worst case scenario that can happen can mentally
prepare you for the emotions that you’re bound to experience, lessening the intensity once
they actually manifest. So picture Freddy ripping your guts out, imagine
what it would feel like to have those six-inch long blades of his in your soft flesh- and
then when the time comes to actually confront him you’ll find that the fear you’re facing
is kind of familiar, and easier to overcome. 1. Push your comfort zone- Fear typically comes
from experiencing the unknown or dangerous. A simple way to defeat fear then is to constantly
push your boundaries and expose yourself to unknown and dangerous circumstances. Just like exposure therapy can combat phobias,
exposing yourself to more and more scary things can actually lessen the effect that fear-
from any source- can have on you. So you’re not afraid of Freddy anymore- perfect. Now you’re in control of the dream, and Freddy
can be your plaything. While dispatching him in the Dream World isn’t
a guarantee that he’ll stay gone, if Freddy can’t make you afraid anymore odds are he’s
not going to be coming back anytime soon. Although we still recommend the Smith and
Wesson. So, how would you defeat Freddy? Have any tips on overcoming fear? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Also, be sure to check out our other video
