A Nightmare on Elm Street

Continuity mistake: When Nancy lays in bed, she looks up at the wall, just after it has been streched by Freddy. In the wideshot her left arm falls off the pillow, yet in the next closeup it's back on the pillow resting by her head. (00:13:40)

Continuity mistake: After Rod's funeral where Nancy's mother is about to get into her car, there's a shot of her saying "I'm going to get her some help". There's a gravestone behind her that reads "Coulter". When we see her entering the car, with her relative position unchanged, the gravestone reads "McRenolds" (00:47:05)
