A Nightmare on Elm Street

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?

Chosen 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.

Question: Why did Freddy's voice change? At the start of the film when he was chasing Tina, he said, "This is god," but throughout the rest of the film (and the series of the films) his voice went deeper. You have to kind of listen carefully throughout the film to know what I'm talking about.

Chosen answer: The scene you are referring to is a dream sequence. In dreams everything is different and how they change throughout the movie is no mistake.

Question: The morning after Tina's death, when Nancy is walking to school, she looks behind her and sees a man in black standing on the corner. Does anyone know who he is?

Chosen answer: He's a cop, her father is having her followed hoping she will lead them to Rod, who they believe killed Tina.

Question: What caused Freddy Krueger to kill originally before his death?

Chosen answer: Freddy's mother was working in an insane asylum where she was locked in a room and raped repeatedly by inmates. Growing up, Freddy was teased for being the son of 100 maniacs and was beaten by his step-father. He killed animals before he started murdering the children of Elm St. His backstory is revealed over the course of several sequels.

Question: The Nightmare on Elm Street films often make reference to Freddy committing numerous child murders before his death, but getting off 'on a technicality.' Are any details of this ever provided? Are we ever told why or how Freddy killed all these children?

Chosen answer: Nancy's mother tells her in the first film that "someone forgot to sign the search warrant, and Krueger went free". In other words, the basement where he had killed his victims was searched illegaly, so the case against him was rejected. Nancy's mother then goes on to showing her Freddy's knife-glove that she had taken from the place they lynched him, so we can safely assume that he used the glove on his first victims as well. As for why he did it... In the sixth film we are shown glimpses of Freddy's childhood, growing up without a mother, with an abusive father, bullied and harassed at school etc. This is a typical example on how to create a violent sociopath, and many (but not all) serial killers come from similar backgrounds.

Question: What actually happens at the end? I assume that the whole plot of the film was Nancy's dream but what happens at the end with the car and Nancy's mom pulled through the window? Was that a dream too?

Chosen answer: The point of the ending is that this question is left unanswered - the classic horror movie ending.
