A Nightmare on Elm Street

Visible crew/equipment: When Freddy falls over the banister onto the stairs near the end, notice the crash mat he lands on. (01:18:55)

Visible crew/equipment: When Rod is being strangled by the sheet in the jail cell, watch as it goes around his neck and you can see the wire in the sheet that pulls it. (00:42:20)

Continuity mistake: In Nancy's final showdown dream, she goes down to the cellar, then goes to open the door which leads to the boiler room. When she opens the door it's hinged on her right hand side, yet when the shot changes the door is now hinged on her left hand side. (01:13:25)

More quotes from A Nightmare on Elm Street


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: 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: When Freddy is killing Tina and slices her body she wakes up right before she gets picked up in the air and dragged across the ceiling. Wouldn't Freddy have stopped messing with her since she woke up at that point?

Answer: She was not awake. People scream, get out of bed and walk around, and even have conversations while sleeping.
