  • Debbie's death involves her turning into a cockroach in what is clearly a very Painful Transformation before being crushed in a roach motel. Also, take note that out of the entire movie, Debbie's death was the longest and the most elaborate that Freddy inflicted. As if that wasn't bad enough, right before he crushes her, you can also see a close-up of an actual cockroach also trapped next to her in the motel and struggling to get free. Anyone with a phobia of those can identify what a Primal Fear it truly is.
