Rick mentions that the Beefy Boy is closing early, and the owner never comes in since "the shooting". This is a reference to season one, episode two, "It's a Miserable Life", in which the employee (who is the owner's son) is shot at the drive-thru during his nightmare. See more »

A Great TV Series, Having Freddy Krueger as Showman – Volume 1
16 June 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

This series was releases in Brazil on a collection of VHS with two episodes each and called `Freddy´s Nightmare – A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series'. The first volume is composed of the following episodes:

1) ` No More Mr. Nice Guy'

Director: Tobe Hooper

Lead Cast: William Frankfather, Jan Williams and Gry Park

On his trial, the judge due to illegal procedure in his arresting releases Freddy Krueger. The locals decide to act as vigilantes and kill him. One lawman feels tormented for breaking the law. My vote is seven. (14 Jun 2004).

2) `It´s a Miserable Life'

Director: Tom McLoughlin

Lead Cast: Lar Park Lincoln and John Mitchell

The son of the owner of a snack bar stays in the graveyard shift, and while waiting for his girlfriend, he feels threatened by a man in a motorcycle. When his girlfriend arrives, many weird things happen with them. My vote is seven. (15 Jun 2004).

I am suspicious to comment this series, since I am a great fan of Freddy Krueger. Both episodes are great. In the second one, the atmosphere recalls `Twilight Zone'. Just as a curiosity, John Mitchell is the same actor of ` Hedwig and the Angry Inch'.

Title (Brazil): `A Hora do Pesadelo – O Terror de Freddy Krueger I' (` The Nightmare's Hour – The Terror of Freddy Krueger I')
