The pregnant Alice finds Freddy Krueger striking through the sleeping mind of her unborn child, hoping to be reborn into the real world.
The graduation sequence was cut down significantly to speed up the pacing of the film. As a result, there are several continuity errors. Among the cut footage was Dan's graduation speech, dialogue between Greta and Racine, a rap between Yvonne, Alice, and Greta, additional dialogue about parents and future plans, and a scene in which Alice's father gives her a camera she had been saving up for as a graduation present before she went to Paris (if you watch closely, you can see Alice hand her father a camera before they go to take the group picture).

When Alice falls out of the shower near the start, she is naked. A green towel can be seen wrapped around her when she is lying on the ground; when she stands up, she is nude again.

The DVD contains the "R" rated theatrical version, which has a running time of 89 minutes. The original videocassette release contains the "Unrated" version, which has a running time of 91 minutes, and features two scenes that were extended with more graphic violence. The motorcycle "fuses" with the Dan's body longer, and Freddy forces Greta's innards into her mouth.
