Gus' nightmares start to feel like reality when he and Shawn work to solve an unlikely case for the SBPD.
Did You Know?
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
The gear shift is in the "Park" position as Shawn is driving Gus' mom's car. See more
