*** Robert's expression kind of works and even makes the event more horrifying if you consider that, in a certain way, Freddy looks as if he's ''excited'' about harming himself.

** The GainaxEnding in which [[spoiler:Freddy is a car]] might remind 90s anime fans of the ending to the ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' movie, which is infamous for a similar... "twist".

** In the scene just before Tina's death where Freddy chops his own fingers off, causing green ooze to spew from the stumps, it is painfully obvious that the effect is not working properly: only his pinky bleeds the ooze, even though he also cut off his ring finger. The problem is even clearer if you watch Freddy's face as the effect occurs- Robert Englund's eyes quickly dart back and forth from the camera to the hand, as though he's nervously observing the flub.
