Trivia

Another big homage to 80's filmography. Bruce Campbell's Character, Dr. Ashford N. Simpson, is a reference to his "Evil Dead" (1981) character Ash J. Williams, who much like Guster also does battle with the undead. Also interesting to note, the last nightmarish creature Gus sees on the college campus, the balding ghoul who spins around and shrieks at the camera, is almost identical to the look used of the creatures in the Evil Dead film series. The title is obviously a reference to the "Nightmare On Elm Street" franchise, which also features people confusing nightmares with reality and visa versa. See more »

Fun, but not for one of the final episodes
4 March 2019 | by MalTruSee all my reviews

Had this been a season 7 episode or something, I'd rate it much higher- it was trippy and had a thousand references. But this close to the end of the series, I would've preferred something less experimental. I feel like we could've still had a Gus-centered episode with lots of pathos that was a bit more straightforward.
