* FridgeHorror: Remember how Freddy was originally conceived as a serial killer who prayed on children and a sexual predator as well? What did Freddy really mean when he said he "touched" Dylan?

** "New Nightmare" has Freddy Krueger escape into the ''real world'' and they didn't ever consider having Creator/RobertEnglund fight him?
*** The movie hints at Freddy sort of replacing Robert Englund, with Robert sort of phasing out as Freddy shows up more, so while it is indeed a wasted opportunity, it was at least considered and rather justified in its removal.

** Throughout most of the movie, Dylan's stuffed dinosaur Rex serves as his guardian and security blanket, to the point where Freddy makes multiple attempts to destroy it, and it even briefly becomes a {{MacGuffin}}. It's disappointing, then, when the movie ends and we never see Rex coming to life in the dream world and eating Freddy.

*** [[spoiler: Arguably FridgeBrilliance: Robert Englund being the person that the public focuses on allows Nancy (as Heather) to have a career, but not be in the public eye ''too much''.]]

* {{Squick}}: Perhaps the Squickiest moment of the series has no gore and no violence: on a television talk show, Heather Langenkamp is asked if she could trust her child around Creator/RobertEnglund, simply because he plays Freddy.

Added DiffLines:

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Despite being well-received by many, the meta concept of Freddy haunting the actors in real life, as well as the SelfInsertFic undertones, turned off a lot of people and this showed with the movie's low box office gross. In contrast, ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'', which shared similar self-aware ideals, was a roaring success, and Wes attributes this to ''Scream'' being more relatable since the main characters are horror fans instead of horror producers.

* WhatAnIdiot: Dylan. The sheer amount of danger he gets into in that film makes his continued survival frankly baffling to witness. One could infer that perhaps [[PlotDevice the plot]] is actively compelling him to do these type of things. Also, Heather commented that Dylan usually acts much differently, which seems to imply that his stupid actions and change in behavior are the result of what's going on with Freddy.

Plus, any parent with a child his age is well aware kids do ''amazingly stupid things''.
