Freddy Krueger returns once again to terrorize the dreams of the remaining Dream Warriors, as well as those of a young woman who may be able to defeat him for good.
During filming, several of the main actors on set were turned off by their costar, actress Tuesday Knight and director Renny Harlin's apparent romantic fling which ultimately resulted in Knight being pampered by Harlin and given special attention while the other actors were tossed aside by crew members. The rumor of their relationship on and off set was talked about so much that when the documentary Never Sleep Again was being filmed, many of the cast spoke of their distaste and jealousy over Knight getting all the attention from their director some twenty years prior.
Kristen Parker: Do you live here?
Alice: Nobody lives here.
Kristen Parker: Where's Freddy?
Alice: Heh, heh. He's not home.
(at around 1h 21 mins) When Alice is fighting Freddy in the church, she burns a hole through his body. Not only is it obvious that the hole isn't actually there but it is a cartoon effect superimposed over Freddy but when the camera goes away and then comes back, there is a panel of brightness at the top left hand corner of the effect so you can't see the Freddy jumper clearly.
A text before the opening credits reads as follows: "When deep sleep falleth on men, fear came apon me. And trembling which made all my bones to shake" -Job IV, 13-14
