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: Before Freddy kills Tina and takes her above her bed, the amount of blood on the sheets changes between shots.

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)

Question: I just saw this movie for the first time and I have three questions for it. First, is Freddy supposed to be a ghost or something or did he not really die? Second, how was Nancy able to bring his hat back after her dream? Third, what was with the ending and Nancy's mom? Was it a dream or real?

Answer: 1. Freddy is the ghost of a child killer, he is very difficult to be rid of. He did not die at the end of this film. 2. It is possible to bring items and even people in and out of the dream world. Although it is never explained in detail how. 3. It was a dream, but as seen in the film, that's not a good thing.
