A Nightmare on Elm Street

Question: Why were Quentin and Nancy upset when they found out they'd told the truth about Freddy? I'd have thought that kind of reaction would come if they thought he was guilty and found out he was innocent.

Chosen answer: They were upset because they realise that Freddy is coming to get revenge on them for his death.

Question: Why does Freddy come back in the end? I thought he was dead? Why is he killing now the adults?

Chosen answer: It's a nod to the original Nightmare on Elm Street where the same thing happened at the end of the movie to Nancy's mother. Also you have to remember that Gwen, whom he killed at the end, was part of the mob who burned him alive. Can we say revenge?

Continuity mistake: There is a scene at the school, where Quentin and Nancy are talking by the lockers. Quentin is wearing a Joy Division shirt. The jacket he is wearing over the shirt keeps changing depending on whether it's a closeup of Quentin or a shot of both him and Nancy. You can easily tell, as the band's name is partially obscured during closeup and fully revealed when it's further away. This changes back and forth several times during that scene. Quentin doesn't move enough to warrant the jacket changing so noticeably. (00:18:15)

Trivia: When Nancy is drowning in the blood, the blood breaks through the floor to pour into the bedroom downstairs. This is a tribute to the original's famous bed-death scene where Johnny Depp is slaughtered by Freddy, causing the room to be drenched in his blood. (01:23:30)
