Wes Craven's New Nightmare

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. (00:29:30)

Continuity mistake: When Freddy is dragging Dylan's babysitter up the wall, you see that no blood goes onto the x-rays on the wall. But in the next shot, you see blood rubbed up the top of the x-ray screen. (01:17:55)

More trivia for Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Question: What is the role of Robert Englund in this movie? Is he and Freddy Krueger supposed to be the same (as his picture and disappearance indicate) or two different characters (as the credits indicate)?

Answer: In the beginning he is just Robert Englund, but as the film goes on, the characters start becoming who they were in Nightmare 1, so he begins to become Freddy, and goes away so he doesn't harm anyone. The demon that looks like Freddy isn't Freddy, just a demon who takes the shape of the character Freddy.
