Nightmare Fuel: Wes Craven's New Nightmare
  • Tina's death is revisited, as Freddy kills Julie in a quite similar manner. Her last words are especially harrowing, when Freddy is about to kill her after dragging her to the ceiling. As she realizes she's about to die, the last thing she can do is helplessly ask a five-year-old kid to save her from the monster. As expected, it's a desperate but hopeless request.
  • After being completely silly in previous sequels, Freddy is back to absolutely terrifying here.
  • When Heather receives the following phone call:
    Freddy: Heh heh heh, I touched him. (*cue tongue out of the phone*)
    • Those three words speak volumes of Fridge Horror when you recall that Freddy was originally conceived as a child killer and a sexual predator. Freddy might have been saying he didn't just have contact with Dylan mentally, but physically.
  • Dylan's little escapade with the jungle gym. It's as tense as anything else in the film.
