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

Revealing mistake: When Jesse is cleaning out his room, he puts a tape into his tape player, and presses a button down on the top of it. But halfway though the scene of him packing his things away, you can clearly see the button is no longer pressed down, yet the tape still plays. (00:18:10 - 00:19:00)

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.
