Doc: Now he's gonna try and trick you just like he tricked Tracy. He'll try and use your eyes to fool you. You'll use these.
[shows her 3D glasses]
Maggie Burroughs: Get the hell outta here.
Doc: You want to live? These mean nothing here, but in a dream, they can be anything you want. He got inside your head. You get inside of his.
Maggie Burroughs: That's my job, isn't it?
Tracy: Be careful. He's good at finding out what hurts the most.
Doc: Exactly.
Tracy: That's why you gotta take me with you.
Maggie Burroughs: I can't. It's gotta be me and him. All right, Doc. Put me in.

Crazy Credits

A text that appears before the opening credits reads: "Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep? To the toes he is terrified, Because the ground gives the way under him, And the dream begins..." -- Friedrich Nietzsche Then the text changes to: "Welcome to Prime Time, bitch." -- Freddy Krueger See more »

Alternate Versions

Television versions often have alternate takes of profanity-laced scenes, such as the "Free me, you idiot, i'm your f**king memory!" scene. Also, in the original version, the map that Carlos is lost in is supposed to read "You're F**ked". Instead, the TV version has the map saying "You're Screwed". See more »

He's Dead, yeah right!
26 August 2003 | by CharlestonNoleSee all my reviews

My least favorite of the entire series. While not a total loss, you do come away feeling cheated. The redeeming qualities of this flick are: the continued exploration into Freddy's past. (HELLO NEW LINE - DO THE NIGHTMARE PREQUEL - IF YOU MAKE IT WE WILL COME!) This was one whacked joker. The 3D sequences were good, but the ending totally blew.

Pros: Opening Sequence -- Cons: Ending -- Bottom Line: Still better than alot of other horror crud 5/10!
