A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

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.

It doesn't matter if Jennifer's death wasn't intended to look like a suicide - she is in a locked ward and was the victim of a homicide. Yet there's no investigation.

Revealing mistake: When Kristen is running through the hallway with the girl in her arms you see that it is a doll. (00:07:00)

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)?

Answer: Technically she was also in New Nightmare, both as the "Nancy" character and as the actress Heather in various scenes.
