Sure took Joey long enough to discover his dream power. I dunno, if I'd been hanging by my hands and feet from a bedpole a hundred feet above a burning lake of fire, I'D have screamed.

I can understand why Dr. Simms and the rest of the staff might think Philip committed suicide, but seriously, Jennifer?! Do they honestly believe Jennifer threw herself head-first through a television that was eight feet up in the air?!

      Contrary to popular belief, sometimes the black kid isn't the first to die and even survives!

        My ex can't watch that scene because his mother's a nurse, so I find it hilarious.

      Having two switchblades makes someone "bad".

        Well, having a switchblade is one thing, but TWO. Now that's "bad"

      If you're handicapped in real life, but ablebodied in dreams, wheelchairs will be your nemesis in said dreams.

            If Joey hadn't been such a hornball, perhaps three of his friends wouldn't have died. (But Freddy probably would have killed them eventually anyway.)

                That tricycle trailing blood was one of the creepiest things in the whole film, and given that this is a Nightmare on Elm Street film (and one of the good ones) that's saying something.

                  Even after Freddy got buried, hit with holy water and blessed with a crucifix, they just couldn't have an unambiguously good ending, could they?

                        Freddy doesn't believe in fairy tales so keep your dungeons and dragons in the real world.

                              Don't worry about saving little girls in your dreamworld, they'll only slow you down and complain.

                                Just because you're the wizard master doesn't mean that magical beams of light can help you.

                                    Seems like someone didn't learn their lesson after Batman decided to say that to the Joker in The Dark Knight when he was holding Rachel Dawes on the roof of a penthouse. If I see that happen again, I'm going to scream.

                                  Patients having psychotic dreams and suicidal tendacies will still be able to play crazy $hit like dungeons and dragons and have stimulants like cigarettes.

                                        He had an extremely powerful scream. If you mean getting laid, you mean he did it with Freddy?

                                                It's awesome seeing cool dream powers demonstrated by the characters. But after seeing them used once against Freddy, many of them just die either in this film or the next.

                                                  After all these nightmares, why would anyone still want to live on Elm Street? Hell I'd move after the first one.

                                                      Dream Warriors is my all time favorite Nightmare on Elm Street film.

                                                            Freddy was the bastard son of a hundred maniacs.

He must have been waiting ages to make that, and it actually fits in well with the entire story.

Just tell them they are being ridiculous, sedate them and lock them a room. That's going to solve everything, especially if they talk about their shared nightmares, it's going to make them feel so comfortable.
