A Nightmare on Elm Street 4

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the souls are coming out of Freddy's chest, in the first close-up on the bottom left of the screen you can see a man's hand holding a black stick to manoeuvre the little arms. It's real fast but noticeable on standard play. (01:20:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Dan pulls up in his red truck, before he goes into the restaurant, you can see the crew reflected in the side of the truck. (00:26:45)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Freddy's head is torn, if you play it slowly, you can see a sleeve and wrist coming out of the wall behind Freddy and pull the prosthetic head back. (01:20:50)

Visible crew/equipment: After Freddy 'sucks' Sheila, Freddy says "You flunked", then it cuts to Alice trying to get out from her desk. Under her desk you can see someones fingers briefly. (00:44:25)

Revealing mistake: After her brother's death, there is a scene in which Alice starts practicing with her brother's nun-chuks. They never show the real actress doing the tricks; instead, they cut to an angle from behind her and show a double who has darker, shorter hair than the real actress and is a bit bigger. (00:56:45)

Question: Why does Freddy use Alice to gain access to new victims?

Answer: As Kristin was being burned to death in the boiler, she passed her ability to pull other people into her dreams to Alice. This enabled Freddy to get new victims.

Answer: He'd killed her friends in the previous movie, remember? When he came back she'd had time to recover and make new friends.

That was Kristen, not Alice. Alice gives the answer to this question herself, while talking to Dan in the diner. She says that Kristen was the last of the children of the people who killed Freddy, and "maybe Freddy can't get to the new kids unless there's someone to bring them to him."
