Eloping couple(rebelling their parents' control)suffer through a series of nightmarish mishaps when their vehicle breaks down near Springwood. Rick(Brad Pitt, pre-stardom and overexerting himself..quite a head full of hair)really wants he and Miranda(Kerry Brennan) to make it on their own without the guiding hand of their overbearing parents who wish to control their lives and careers. But, soon his whole world becomes one nightmare feeding into another with various surreal encounters that ensue.
In the second portion of the episode, Miranda, contemplating what life would be like through pregnancy and childbirth(as it pertains to her career and marriage), induces a series of nightmarish consequences that would result if in fact she found out she did have a bun in the oven.
One of the weaker episodes I've seen doesn't really have many moments that stand out and bite you. The first part of the episode where Pitt goes through various scrapes such as being hit by a van, getting pistol whipped by an elderly man who(along with elderly wife)rob him blind, being shot in the leg by Cupid's arrow(literally!), arrested by police for no apparent reason causing the cops to crash their car, etc. The second one regarding Brennan's constant crisis involving the nightmarish ideas of motherhood rather falls flat and doesn't really have a rightful place in a series called Freddy's Nightmares. Seriously, an episode about an 18 year old's fear of what can occur regarding her being a mother is tame stuff for Lifetime Television for Women or something..not a show hosted by Freddy Kreuger.
Bill Moseley, of "The Devil's Rejects", House of 1000 Corpses', and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2" fame turns up in this episode as a tow truck driver.
