** Also, Alice's pediatrician, who responds to her problems with Freddy (which he naturally sees as mental problems) by calling Dan's parents instead of Alice's own father, however troubled he is. They immediately talk custody takeover, which had to make Dan roll over a few more times in his grave.

* EvilIsPetty: Freddy frequently goes out of his way to taunt Alice but flaunting his kills in front of her and just plain harassing her when he can. However, this seems to be because he genuinely hates her and is actually unable to really do anything to her because if he does, he could end up hurting Jacob.

Because of his mother's restless spirit is still trapped in the land of the living, Freddy Krueger "finds the key" to return to the teens' dreamscapes. As if that wasn't enough, he also decides to enter the real world by possessing Alice's baby, who is yet to be born, feeding him the souls of those whom he has killed.

* ParentalNeglect: Racine Gibson pretty much lived in her own little world. When Greta is being offered a modeling job at a dinner party and she is pretty much uninterested due to a lack of sleep and the fact that she's still reeling from [[spoiler: Dan's]] death, we get this little scene:

* AdultsAreUseless: Greta's mother Racine, who is downright unsympathetic to the fact that her daughter has lost close friends.
** Also the scene of [[spoiler:Greta]]'s death. In the real world it appears as though she's violently choking, yet her mother and the people at the dinner party all simply stare at her. It isn't until she falls face first into her salad, dead, that her mother and the party-goers check if she's alright.

* ItCameFromTheFridge: After [[spoiler:Greta]] has been force-fed to death in her dream, we cut to Alice going to fetch her father a drink in the fridge. When she opens it, the food rots in front of her eyes (and an eyeball even shows up on them) before her dead friend suddenly bursts out of the fridge, only to be dragged back inside by Freddy Krueger. The fridge closes, is opened again, and everything is back to normal.
** For added insult, when the fridge closes, there's a test on the fridge door with the words "Fuck You" written on it. It's held by a Freddy magnet.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Archenemy}}: The film presents Alice as Freddy's, mainly because she was too powerful for him to control, and his empty threats and taunts seem to be his pathetic way of expressing his hatred of her.

* GoodParents: [[spoiler: Dennis Jordan TookALevelInKindness and sobered up for his and Alice's sake. He firmly stands by Alice, and even though he doesn't believe in Freddy, does what he can to help.]] Also, Mark's dad seems to be a pretty decent person, compared to Dan's parents who are loving but too controlling, and Greta's StageMom.

That said, she is incredibly kind and is at odds sweet, being friends with kids who don't share her domineering mother Racine.
