Ending / spoiler

(3 votes)

Heather Lagenkamp's whole world slowly changes into that of Nancy from the Elm Street films. She follows her son into Freddy's world where after a battle she finally defeats him. At the end she reads Wes Craven's script for his new film, and it is indeed all the events she has just went through. Craven has signed the script "thanks for playing nancy one last time".
