** Creator/JohnnyDepp tagged along to auditions for [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984 the original film]] with a friend. Wes Craven asked Depp to read as well, and Depp was cast other than the friend he was supporting. But fret not about the friend. 26 years later, Jackie Earle Haley would go on to play Freddy.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot / [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter Character]]: The film brings up the possibility of Freddy being innocent of the child molesting, but that's soon thrown right out.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Many critics and viewers gave Katie Cassidy props for her performance as Kris; some even wished the film had made her the FinalGirl rather than the {{decoy|Protagonist}}.



* SoOkayItsAverage: Critics approved of Jackie Earle Haley's performance as Freddy and the research put into the science of sleep, while also giving Katie Cassidy props for her performance as Kris; some reviewers even wished the film had made her the FinalGirl rather than the {{decoy|Protagonist}}. However, they regarded the rest of the film as another failed attempt to recapture past glories.

* TheScrappy: Nancy Holbrook, often cited as one of the worst final girls of all time. Doubles as ReplacementScrappy, since Nancy Thompson in the original movie was loved by fans for being proactive in standing up to Freddy, a trait which her successors carried into the sequels. New Nancy, in contrast, is a reactive character. It doesn't help that Creator/RooneyMara claimed [[TheyJustDidntCare she sabotaged the role because she didn't want it]].

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Creator/JackieEarleHaley as Freddy. Even those who felt that he was no replacement for Creator/RobertEnglund still said that he was the best character in the film for having actually tried to make his character scary.
