Revealing mistake: When Nancy is running up the stairs in her house to escape Freddy for the first time her foot hits the steps and go through the steps into some goop. Look at the steps above that step and you can see the pre-cut holes where the next sets of goop will be. (00:39:10)
8. 1/10. The one that started all nightmares for us. I like it though honestly I felt they were holding back at time particularly with Freddy. He seemed more like an over the top bad guy, not grounded in reality as much others have been. I honestly liked the reboot idea of him being a child molester more because seeing how friendly he appeared to be was chilling. That someone so nice would hurt kids that way is creepy. Still Robert Englund does a great job in, no debate, his greatest role. I would say the weak link was Heather Langenkamp. She came across as this rather bland girl who had nothing going on. She seemed more like a teenager for that 50's show Mr Peepers or that 70's show set in the 50's Happy Days, maybe even Leave It To Beaver. Still I can understand and agree with being a top notch horror movie of the 80's.
Glen Lantz: Miss Nude America is going to be on tonight.
Mrs. Lantz: How can you hear what she's going to say?
Glen Lantz: Who cares what she says?
Trivia: The actors' reactions when the car roof came up were real - Wes Craven made the roof speed up unexpectedly.
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?
