Revealing mistake: When the glove comes up the car seat and into Porter's chest, there are lights from buildings out the side window, so the car isn't moving at all. When it cuts, there's suddenly a hill where the lights should be and now the car is moving again.

Robert Englund: I think they'd like to see us together again.
Heather Lagenkamp: In what? A romantic-comedy?
Robert Englund: Just because it's a love story doesn't mean it can't have a decapitation or two.



In the hospital Heather is told that she can not be in a certain area without a pass; she replies "Screw your pass." The very same line was spoken, by her character Nancy in Nightmare on Elm Street 1, to a hall monitor in her dream.
