According to Leslie Bohem, "I wrote a draft that was basically Alice was in a theater group, and they were doing Medea." Due to Tyler Perry we now have to pause and clarify that Bohem is not referring to Madea, a story about a black man playing a fiery old black grandma, but instead most likely the ancient Greek tragic play Medea, about a woman who takes revenge on a husband for stepping out on her. Now, back to Bohem's quote, "It was very, very weird. There was a play, and then there were the dreams. I finished, and they went, 'Yeaaaah, we have this other idea. See more »

In the end credits, Lisa Wilcox's (Alice) name is omitted, possibly due an oversight with the end credits being listed alphabetically and the fact that her last name would have put her last on the list. See more »

Special-Effects Great; Story Stinks
Some of the best, if not the best, special effects in the seven-part "Nightmare On Elm Street" series were featured in this movie. They are good and they are clever.
The teens in here are still annoying and profane but not to the degree they are in most of the "Freddy" films. There are some real "hotties" in here, too. The ridiculous part is that all these "teens" look about 25 years old (which they probably are). Robert Englund (Freddy) has some funny lines, as he did in a most of these movies and the movie is well-photographed.
My problem with the story, and almost of them actually, is the theology which has always been so stupid, but I tolerated it through all of the films. But here, to a show a book in the beginning of the film that says "Christian Mythology," is a real cheap shot and going too far. This pagan propaganda was heavy in this film, which is really only worthwhile for the inventive special-effects.
