A Nightmare on Elm Street

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, not nearly long enough for everything she did.

Plot hole: Nancy has realised she has pulled Freddy out of her dream, but later Freddy and Nancy were basically in the same position in Nancy's dream, why didn't Freddy come out of the dream world and come into reality then? (00:40:17 - 01:18:01)
