Nosferatu (1922)
The shadow of a hand approaching its victim while he's in his bed. Also, about 88 minutes into New Nightmare, there's a shot of Freddy's shadow that's reminiscent of the famous shot from Nosferatu.
King Kong (1933)
Heather says "Every kid knows who Freddy is. He's like Santa Claus... or King Kong".
Citizen Kane (1941)
The image of Freddy on the talk show waving his arms around with the spotlight behind him is a direct reference to the super-famous shot virtually identical to this in the news-room scene after the news-reel plays in Kane. The room is dark except for a single strong light which streams in from the window, and there is a shot of the reporter where the light is directly behind him and he displaces it as he movies his arms, just like in New Nightmare.
Psycho (1960)
In the final scene where Dylan stabs Freddy's tongue outside the oven, you can hear the famous shower scene music.
Hour of the Wolf (1968)
The wall crawling scene
The Omen (1976)
The child being suspicious, having visions, being something to fear (Heather's freaky dreams about the kid and the kid's creepy performance) all reference Damien in Omen.
Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
According to Robert Englund, the performance as Freddy was based off Klaus Kinski role as Count Orlok in the 1979 remake of Nosferatu.
Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
The scene where Dylan falls off the play equipment is a reference to the famous scene in KvsK where Ted and Margaret are sitting on a bench at the park not watching their kid, and shots of them talking are intercut with shots of the kid climbing the play equipment and the conversation of the pair applies both to what they're talking about and to what the kid is doing. The woman notices the kid is about to fall and runs to catch him.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)
During Heather's interview, Robert Englund enters the studio dressed in Krueger's costume and exclaims "You are all my children now!" - a line from the second movie.
Dr. Giggles (1992)
Heather has a nightmare about Freddy (dressed as a doctor) performing a horrific operation on Dylan, just as Jennifer has of Dr. Rendell doing to her.
