* HighPressureBlood: [[spoiler:Nancy's boyfriend Glen]] is dragged into his bed by Freddy, disappearing into a hole -- and a massive geyser of blood comes exploding out. No, this was not just in the nightmare world; later in the movie, we see cops carrying down ''buckets'' from the boy's room. Lots of them.

* HarassingPhoneCall: Nancy tries to call Glen to warn him not to go to sleep. Then the phone rings. She picks it up. It's [[spoiler: the sound of Fred's claws being sharpened.]] She (understandably) freaks out, tears the phone out of the plug, and throws it across the room. Then, despite being unplugged, it starts ringing ''again''. ''This'' time, it's [[spoiler: Freddy again, telling her that "I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy", and then his tongue sticks out the phone.]]

** Another thing to note was the theme of the movie was about Nancy having to grow up and face this threat by herself almost like a coming of age story. However by having the movie [[spoiler: ending with Freddy winning (thanks to ExecutiveMeddling)]] the point of the film seemed lost.

* DaylightHorror: [[spoiler:At the end, we get a HopeSpot where Nancy firmly believes Freddy is dead and gone. It's an overly bright, clear day. She gets in a car, waves lovingly to her mother...then the car morphs into Freddy's signature colors and carts her and her friends off to their sunny, cheerful, and oblivious doom, while her mother gets pulled into the house by Freddy. The end.]]

* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Nancy has her dreams monitored by a brain-scan. The doctor notes that a "really intense" nightmare would read about seven...then watches in disbelief as it goes to 10, 15, 30...

* CassandraTruth: No one believes Nancy when she tells them someone is after her in her dreams. Double subverted in that it's later revealed they are fully aware who Freddy Krueger was and that they personally buried him after he murdered their children, they just don't believe he could come back from the dead.

* AdultsAreUseless: The adults do about everything they can to be as unhelpful as possible whether it be ignoring evidence that something weird is going on, being drunk, or just plain not listening.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Freddy isn't nearly as talkative as he is in later films, and what few lines he does have lack the [[LaughablyEvil dark humor]] otherwise typical of the character.
