A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

Other mistake: When Freddy puts his claws through Grady, not only do thy go through him, they manage to go well past the door. There is no way Freddy's claws are that long. (00:57:20)


Other mistake: If Freddy ripped his scalp off, it would be his skull, not his bare brain. It's not like he pulled both of them off at once. Freddy's got a skull, as we saw when Tina took his face off in the first film, so why is the top of it missing in this one?

Suggested correction: This scene takes place within Jesse's nightmare, which is Freddy's domain, so Freddy can manipulate any detail he wants, in this case, exposing his brain without cutting open his skull.


Visible crew/equipment: When Schneider is being dragged along by two skipping ropes you can clearly see two wires attached to his shoulders which are actually pulling him along. (00:34:10)

More quotes from A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

Trivia: This film is notorious for having undertones and themes that many perceive as homoerotic, and the events of the film are often perceived by critics as a personification of the lead character Jesse being tormented by being "in the closet" and unable to be true to himself. While the makers of the film initially denied that this subtext was intentional, screenwriter David Chaskin recently admitted that the subtext was intentionally written into the script in order to give the characters and story depth.

Question: What was up with the coach's death? Was Freddy trying to rape him or something?

Answer: I think the coach's death was a play on his character being at a S&M bar. People who frequent those places are usually into bondage and being dominated. Hence being tied up, and whipped with the towel. It also fits in with the homoerotic subtext throughout the movie.
