Despite being one of the better received ''Elm Street'' films, the film [[AcclaimedFlop wasn't as big at the box office]], garnering 16 million dollars with its 8 million budget. It's self-aware tone and deconstruction of the horror genre is considered a precursor to ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', which Craven directed two years later, though while ''Scream'' went onto become a blockbuster film and genre touchstone, ''New Nightmare'' settled for more of a cult following.

* BecomingTheMask: The Entity that was sealed as Freddy Krueger has been stuck as him for so long that he thinks he ''is'' Freddy, and by extension Heather is [[FinalGirl Nancy.]]



* SealedEvilInACan: Freddy Krueger himself, but he's not really "Freddy" so much as Evil Itself taking on the form of Freddy, and there needs to be a script made in order to contain it.

In fact, it could be said Freddy ''was'' the can for the entity, as it was his story and form it's been imprisoned in.

* ShapeshifterModeLock: When a new ''Nightmare'' movie is plagued by a mysterious series of deaths, it's revealed that an ancient shapeshifting evil that has existed in various forms throughout time but which can be contained by stories has been impersonating Freddy Krueger for the past 10 years. After being stuck as Freddy for so long, the spirit started to believe that it actually ''was'' Freddy and tries to target Heather Langenkamp, the actress who played the first FinalGirl to face him.
