A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

Visible crew/equipment: When the boy who wanted to be a wizard is being chased in his dream, they are in a dark tight corridor, and Freddy releases a chair with spikes on it to chase after the boy, but if you look you can clearly see the chair is being pulled with strings.

Continuity mistake: In the first shot when Freddy injects his syringe-fingers in Taryn's arm, the syringes are spread apart and not in line. In the next shot all the fingers are in line, next to each other.

Revealing mistake: When Kincaid tears a pipe out of the ground to beat Freddy with, as he yanks it out you can see tape hanging off the pipe it was next to, showing they are fake.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Other mistake: When Taryn turns into a punk and walks down the alley way, you can clearly see Freddy's back along the bottom of the camera shot as if he is trying to pass the camera for the next shot. This happens as Taryn looks down the alley. However, if that was meant to happen, wouldn't she have seen Freddy, and not have been so scared when he approached her from behind?

Continuity mistake: When Philip is sleepwalking, he walks out of the room since the door is wide open. Yet in the scene where Joey is slamming on everyone's doors to wake them up, we see that the door to Philip's room is shut because Kincaid is seen opening the door.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Gordon is on his computer he is supposedly researching about Hypnocil, and acting as if he is searching and reading. Yet the information on the screen is clearly all written in word doc.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Max turns off the lights, the switches are already down - he doesn't move them in any way (neither up nor down) and therefore hasn't made any actions that would alter the current lighting situation, however the lights turn themselves off anyway even though it is apparent the switches were not moved. Nobody else moved any lightswitches either.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Freddy turns into a puppet, he cuts his own strings with his knive fingers to get down and as he falls you can see some strings still attached to him, but when the shot changes and he lands on the floor, there are no longer any strings attached to him.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: The day Kristin is admitted into the hospital, she is screaming and fighting with the staff. She then cuts Max on his right inner arm with a scalpel. In the next scene where Max is introducing the kids to Nancy, Max has a very small band-aid where Kristin cut him yet the band-aid is on the outer part of his arm by his elbow.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Kristen is in the clinic, and is resisting the sedative, she throws some turquoise items across the room. However, between shots she actually throws these same items twice.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, when Kristen turns her clock around to check the time, you can clearly see that the second hand is not rotating, therefore the clock is not working.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Kristen is resisting being taken to the isolation room, she holds onto the desk. On the desk beside her is a file box. In the next shot as she is dragged away, the box is gone.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Nancy is talking to Max about seeing the kids one last time, the front shots show her standing straight up. But the shots from behind she her leaning against the wall.

xx:xx:xx

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Nancy falls backwards into the chair, and enters Kristen's dream, there is nothing on the chair. When she appears back on the chair afterwards, there's two pillows on the chair.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Plot hole: The group talks about Phillip's death. The doctor says Phillip's death was a sleepwalking accident, nothing more. Then the other doctor says it was suicide. How do you explain either situation when the door was padlocked with no way out to the very top of the building where Phillip fell?

Suggested correction: Because those doctors are delusional about what really happened. Anybody can say that it was just a sleepwalking accident, but someone like Nancy knows that Phillip was dreaming and could walk through the door thanks to Freddy. If Freddy can kill you in your dreams and it becomes real, how can anyone say that this isn't possible?

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Kristen gets a spoonful of coffee and as she puts it in her mouth you can see there's no coffee on the spoon.

Continuity mistake: When Jennifer's head goes into the TV, the antennas on top are gone just after Freddie's arms come out of the TV, but in the next shot they are back.

Plot hole: The TV-watching girl is killed when Freddy shoves her face first into a TV set. (one of the more creative movie deaths.) But the thing is, all the other deaths have been set up to look like suicides if not accidents - this one was obviously foul play, since there's no way she could have launched herself into the glass of a TV screen hard enough to break it. We see that her body is found this way, but they make no inquiry.

Suggested correction: Not all of the deaths were meant to be suicidal; Phillip and Kirsten were the only exceptions. When Will and Taryn were killed, it was in the dream when they wanted to help Kirsten but nobody was there to witness it and it was much later in the film. Also when Joey was caught by Freddy, he was only passed out but still alive. The one kid that cut his eyelids off was not only never shown but his death happened by his own doings out of fear for Freddy.

Trivia

One of the best bargains that they got on an effect was when Kristen enters the nightmare house and sees a roasted pig that starts barking at her. The special effects guys were coming up with $300,000 estimates for how much a prosthetic pig would cost to build and animate; they could not afford that. Finally they got 2 REAL roasted pigs. One was decorated to look like it was ready to eat, and the other was made to look demonic. A crew member, who lost a coin toss, got under the table and stick his hand up into this dead pig to make it work. Glad it wasn't me...
