A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)
Directed by: Stephen Hopkins
Starring: Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Danny Hassel, Kelly Jo Minter
Alice, having survived the previous installment of the Nightmare series, finds the deadly dreams of Freddy Krueger starting once again. This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world. The only one who can stop Freddy is his dead mother, but can Alice free her spirit in time to save her own son?
Freddy Krueger: It's a boy.
Trivia: The idea of focusing the story around children and birth was hatched by Executive Producer Sara Risher, who was a new mother at the time, and constantly had her child and its well-being in her mind. The crew decided to build off this, because they felt that the teenagers and 20-somethings who were fans of the original film were beginning to reach the age where they were likely thinking about settling down and having families themselves. Thus, incorporating elements of family and birth into the film would keep the series relevant and special for fans of the earlier entries.
Question: I'm a little confused about Greta's death. Was it from eating too much or from her eating what was not good for her?
Answer: In the VHS version, Freddy cut open her stomach and was feeding her own intestines. That's why when he cut open the doll on the high chair tray Greta was wincing and squirming as Freddy had just cut her stomach open. I guess you could say that that doll on the high chair tray was like a voodoo doll of Greta so whatever Freddy did to it happened to Greta too. Eventually, Freddy caused Greta to choke on her own intestines which caused her to choke to death in the real world.
