Did You Know?


The title is referenced by the song from heavy metal singer Alice Cooper. He will appear as Freddy's father in "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" (1991). See more »


During the trial, the case against Freddy is dismissed because he wasn't read his rights. This would not have made the arrest illegal and would not have been cause for dismissal of the case. All it would mean is that any statement he may have made after being arrested would not be admissible in court until he was read his rights, and there was no indication that the case against him hinged on any such statement.

Contradictionally fun
9 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this episode (the first one, i guess the pilot) long time ago and i really enjoyed it. Despites that it's a contradiction of the story in the movies, of course, there's no Ronee Blakley or John Saxon (who's character is the one that leads the parents to make justice by their own hand) and replace this character with a daughter for one (a cop too) who has twins, one abused by Freddy. This character is played by Ian Patrick Williams (he was OK). The interesting is the fact that at the time is was made (1988) was the first time the fans of the Freddy's movies could see how Freddy was executed, something that in the films only was told always by a character. The films only show something similar in 1991, in the part 6. For horror fans, the cherry on the top is that this first episode was directed by Tobe Hooper ("The Texas chainsaw massacre (1974)") who get involve with a character like Freddy after have done his (at this time) last movie as a director with Leatherface 2 years before in "The Texas chainsaw massacre 2 (1986)". I must say that is really entertained and it's doesn't matter that if is a contradiction or not. After all, these are the Freddy's nightmares.
