* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: While such notions have been lost with the overdone franchise, critics and film historians have stated that the movie represents the struggle young people have to see the distinction between fantasy and reality.

** 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".

** When Freddy is set on fire at the end, it is painfully obvious that it is a stunt-double.

** 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.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Freddy's stretching arms look rather shaky by modern standards. The mom mannequin at the end doesn't hold up either.

** During the commentary, Creator/WesCraven notes that the old prison where they filmed was later condemned for asbestos pipes. He comments they would all die of cancer. Not so funny after his death of brain cancer in 2015.

-->'''Nancy''': You know Tina, she dreamed this was gonna happen...She had a nightmare, that someone was trying to kill her. (breaks down sobbing) That's why we were there mom. She just didn't wanna sleep alone.

** Creator/JohnnyDepp getting killed off by a man with knives for fingers. Depp later gets out of [[Series/TwentyOneJumpStreet Jump Street]] by playing a man with [[Film/EdwardScissorhands scissors for hands.]]

to:

** Creator/JohnnyDepp tagged along to auditions for the film with a friend. Creator/WesCraven asked Depp to read as well, and Depp ended up being cast instead of his friend he was supporting. But fret not about the friend; 26 years later, Creator/JackieEarleHaley would go on to [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010 play Freddy Krueger himself]].
