Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Kristen is making a Papier-mâché house, and in the process, her hands become covered in mixture. However suddenly both her hands are completely clean. (00:02:10)
The third Nightmare continues Freddy's story with the nightmare of a teen named Kristen,who narrowly escapes becoming another of Freddy's victims. Her near death dream is thought to be a suicide attempt and lands her in a psychiatric hospital with other "suicidal" teens who also seem to share the same boogeyman in their dreams. Enter Nancy, the sole surviver of the first Nightmare movie. Nancy has just accepted a position as a research scientist at a psychiatric institution and is working with a group of children who all share nightmares of Freddy. She discovers that one of the children (Kristen) has a special gift which may help them destroy Freddy forever.
Trivia: When Jennifer is killed by having her head smashed into the TV-screen, Freddy was scripted as saying "This is it, Jennifer! Your big break on TV!" The scene was shot with that line for several takes. However, during another take, Robert England (Freddy) decided to improvise another line, and said "Welcome to primetime, bitch!" Director Chuck Russell loved both lines so much, he couldn't decide which to use in the film, so he ended up using both.
Question: I saw this movie for the first time in years the other night, and I did not remember that Nancy was killed in this one. Is this the last nightmare film that she was in (other than the one where Freddy came to the real world and everybody played real names)?
