100 Maniacs of the Halfway House appear in A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: the Dream Child. They are the immates at the abandoned Hathaway House mental institution and are responsible for the birth of the series' main villain Freddy Krueger.


In the 1930s, a state asylum known as Hathaway House was built in the American town of Springwood, Ohio. It served as the home of a hundred criminally insane men.

1 decade later in 1941, a religious sisterhood of nuns maintained the asylum. One of the nuns, Amanda Krueger, was a volunteer. During Christmas in the same year, the employees were rushing to get home to their families. They forgot about Amanda and she was accidentally left in the asylum.

For the next few days after the Christmas of 1941, Amanda was beaten and brutally raped by the 100 inmates. Eventually, she was found by the employees. She was barely alive but also pregnant.

9 months later in 1942, Amanda gave birth to a boy. He was named Frederick Charles Krueger and was the culmination of all 100 inmates from the asylum.

Eventually, the asylum was permanently closed. The inmates' fate is unknown.


  • One of the inmates was played by Robert Englund. Ironically, Englund also played Freddy Krueger.
