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)
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)
Trivia: The actors' reactions when the car roof came up were real - Wes Craven made the roof speed up unexpectedly.
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?
Nancy Thompson: Oh, God. I look 20 years old.
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.
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?
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?
