Continuity mistake: After Nancy pulls her phone out in frustration, she wraps the phone cord around it, and places it on her bed nice and neatly. But in the next shot of the phone mysteriously ringing, the phone is in a different position and the phone cord is wrapped around the phone differently.
Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, during Tina's first dream, Tina gets cornered in front of one of the furnaces. She steps forward and Freddy jumps out from behind her and scares her. When she steps forward, Freddy (who is trying to lean down out of the shot) is seen stepping sideways to position himself to scare Tina.
Continuity mistake: When Nancy is at her bedroom window, she says "OK Krueger, we play in your court" and she is holding her alarm clock. She then pulls down the blind, then when it cuts to inside, Nancy is walking over to her bed but isn't holding her alarm clock. If you look, the clock is on her bedside table, but she doesn't put it there.
Plot hole: Following Glen's death, Nancy tells her father to come across the street in 20 minutes to catch Freddy. She then goes to her house, checks and sets her alarm clock, and proceeds to rig the ENTIRE house with booby traps, including filling a light bulb with the contents of several shotgun shells, and has a heart-to-heart talk with her inebriated mom. When she gets back to her room to go to sleep, she checks her clock again. The time on the clock has advanced only TEN minutes. She did ALL that in only TEN minutes?
Visible crew/equipment: When Nancy "jumps" from the boiler room to her front garden you can see her land in a pile of bushes. You don't even have to look closely to see the big black air mattress she lands on. It actually bounces above the fake bushes and becomes almost completely visible.
Continuity mistake: When Nancy is in the boiler room towards the end of the movie, Freddy suddenly jumps out and scares her. In this shot Freddy is wearing his hat. Earlier in the movie Nancy took the hat from him. After the shot where Freddy jumps out at her with his hat on, the next scene shows him chasing her down a staircase without his hat.
Visible crew/equipment: This is during the part where the girl dies in the bedroom with her boyfriend (where she gets dragged up along the roof). Just before, when you see the marks made by Freddy's glove, and her hands come up to show her pain, she clearly grabs a chunk of the thin latex pad (best viewed in slo-mo).
Continuity mistake: When Nancy gets out the bath, and after her mother leaves, she locks the door then leans back on the sink. Between a wideshot and following closeup, as she leans back, the way her towel and bathrobe are positioned (around her neck) changes. Also, into the wideshot she crosses her arms yet it the closeup her left hand is up by her shoulder.
Visible crew/equipment: When Nancy is in the dream clinic the doctor attempts to give her an injection. As she pushes the doctor away, the bedsheet falls slightly and Freddy's hat can be seen for a couple of seconds. In the next shot, the sheet is above her waist again at which time she reveals that she pulled the hat from her dream.
Continuity mistake: When Nancy is in class, the teacher walks around the room and we get a good look of everyone in their seats. Then she asks one student to read in front of the class. But the student who gets up and reads wasn't who was sitting there in the previous shot. He is a different person, and is also wearing different clothes.

Continuity mistake: When Nancy is by the door, listening to the racket going on whilst Tina's being killed, her boyfriend sneaks up on her, and she says "Oh my God. You scared me." and she grabs her cheek with her hand, and starts to brush her forehead. But in the consecutive shot her hand's down by the wall.
Revealing mistake: When Nancy is running upstairs, and struggling in the goop holes, we see a shot of Freddy smash his arm through the small door window. If you play in slow-motion, you can see a large pre-made crack in the window to make it easier for him to smash, which WASN'T there when Nancy ran through...
Continuity mistake: In one scene Nancy's mother is pouring herself a drink, then Nancy enters the room and she switches off the TV. Then Nancy and her mother start talking about going to school, and behind Nancy's mother on the worktop, a white alcohol bottle can be seen. But after their conversation when Nancy leaves, the bottle of alcohol is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Nancy tackles Freddy on her bed, the alarm clock on her bedside table is away from the edge of the desk. Yet in the shot when Freddy and Nancy roll off the side of the bed, the alarm clock on the bedside table has noticeably moved right to the edge so that Nancy can grab it as she falls.
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"
