This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world.

The end credits song, "Let's Go" by Kool Moe Dee was actually a diss track to LL Cool J. The two rappers were feuding at the time this film was being made. See more »

[as The Phantom Prowler]
Time to die, you scar-faced limp-dick.
[fires a bunch of times until Freddy changes]
Faster than a bastard maniac! More powerful than a loco-madman! It's... Super Freddy!

Told you comic books was bad for ya!

In the end credits, Lisa Wilcox's (Alice) name is omitted, possibly due an oversight with the end credits being listed alphabetically and the fact that her last name would have put her last on the list. See more »

children can do anything...
Obviously, they wanted to have Freddy come back yet again. This time, he murders people through the dreams of an unborn baby. You read that right: AN UNBORN BABY! I never knew that unborn babies can dream, but apparently they can. As for the murders themselves...well, let's just say that the doll scene was something else! I would imagine that Robert Englund is probably proud to be remembered as that claw-handed slasher. Granted "A Nightmare On Elm Street: The Dream Child" isn't exactly the most creative movie ever, but it's still neat for what it is. Needless to say, there are some silly one-liners. And yet, there were even sequels after this one...
