Revealing mistake: Freddy bites Lisa on the leg. When she starts to kick him, you can see it's Lisa's stunt double.

Revealing mistake: When Jesse is cleaning out his room, he puts a tape into his tape player, and presses a button down on the top of it. But halfway though the scene of him packing his things away, you can clearly see the button is no longer pressed down, yet the tape still plays. (00:18:10 - 00:19:00)

Revealing mistake: When the crazy bird is let out of the cage it starts flying around. Then it explodes in mid-air. A split-second before it explodes you can clearly see the size of the bird increase by about three times. (00:28:15)

Trivia: Make-up effects artist Kevin Yagher replaced David Miller, who designed the Freddy make-up for the original. Yagher only had a few pictures and what was shot from the original film to refer to, so he redesigned Freddy's look. Yagher studied pictures of burn victims and brought out the facial bones more than how Miller had done it.

Trivia: Take a close look at the bus driver at the beginning of the movie. It is Robert Englund without his Freddie makeup/costume.

Trivia: This film is notorious for having undertones and themes that many perceive as homoerotic, and the events of the film are often perceived by critics as a personification of the lead character Jesse being tormented by being "in the closet" and unable to be true to himself. While the makers of the film initially denied that this subtext was intentional, screenwriter David Chaskin recently admitted that the subtext was intentionally written into the script in order to give the characters and story depth.

Ron Grady: So, what about you and that rich babe you've been cruising to school with every day.
Jesse Walsh: What about her?
Ron Grady: Are you mounting her nightly or what?

Jesse Walsh: Hey, Grady, do you remember your dreams?
Ron Grady: Only the wet ones.

Question: What was up with the coach's death? Was Freddy trying to rape him or something?

Chosen answer: I think the coach's death was a play on his character being at a S&M bar. People who frequent those places are usually into bondage and being dominated. Hence being tied up, and whipped with the towel. It also fits in with the homoerotic subtext throughout the movie.
