MPAA Rated R for horror violence, and for language and drug content

Sex & Nudity

  • Lots of sexual innuendo.
  • One of the male teenagers implies to a female teenager that "you look sexy when you sweat".
  • A teen tells a teen girl that she needs to get laid.
  • It is implied that a girl's father sexually abused her.

Violence & Gore

  • A teenage boy has a que-tip stuck through one ear and out the other. Might be disturbing for some viewers.
  • A teen's head explodes. Graphic, but not bloody.
  • A TV fills up with blood.
  • A boy is beaten up by video game characters.
  • A boy falls to his death.
  • A boy falls onto a spike bed in a dream, causing bloody holes to appear in his torso in real life.
  • A girl beats her father to death with a coffee pot. He then revives, and his face is smooshed and contorted in a weird shape. Disturbing to sensitive viewers.
  • We see a young boy take a hammer to a mouse (offscreen, though crunching noises are heard).
  • A young man cuts himself.
  • Freddy cuts his fingers off, with bloody results.


  • Somewhere between three and six 'F' words. A few uses of hell, damn.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One of the teen boys is a pot addict, and we see him smoking a joint.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Comical entry.
  • The entire mood of the film is eerie and slightly comical.
  • This film is one of the more sadistic of the Nightmare on Elm Street films, and includes a scene where a mother punishes her son by 'cleaning out his ears' with a que-tip. Freddy uses this to torment the boy in a dream sequence.
  • There is also a scene where a girl beats her father's face in with a coffee pot, which squishes his face into a weird shape.
  • 14+
