A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) – Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh hi!

That’s right your honor. I was on Elm street just trying to sell my new invention: The Finger Knife Glove when all these parents start coming at me.

What’s that your honor? You like my ugly sweater. Well thank you..uh I like your robe.

Anywho, you see my Finger Knife Glove is going to revolutionize the cutlery industry. It’s going to do for the kitchen… what indoor plumbing did for shitting.

oh…and if that doesn’t excite your honor and the jury, I have a great idea for some Scissor Hands.

What’s that? Not guilty. Well thank you your honor.

Chow Chow Chow!

SHOW NOTES:

 

That places looks like tetanus (Tet-Anus)

Lamb in the halls..metaphorical dude! RUN

You can see through here nightgown. Probably on purpose.

This is a pretty complicated shot with all the shadows and smoke? Right? Maybe. Who is the CinnamonTographer?

This music and effects are abrasive. Intentionally. I wonder if they used one of them horror music homemade dealies.

Run girl…run!

Why is it always in the boiler room? Perhaps they will tell us more about the boiler room later in the movie?

Freddie pops up with laser shot noises. pew pew pew

It was just a dream mamma!

Mamma is getting some and by some I mean some of that old man spaghetti.

The Freddie song! 1-2…Freddie’s coming for you….3-4… shhh…I’m trying to see if I can remember it from my childhood! 3-4 Better lock the door. 5-6 Crucifix.  7-8 Something something about don’t be late. 9-10 Freddie’s creeping again. 11-12 You’re out of bed? Twelve…belve…shit….

OGR 805 – Johnny (Glen) is driving an old convertible…and man can he hop!

“I had a hard on when I woke up this morning.” Thanks Glenn…so does 90% of the male population in high school…give that man a boner prize.

Up yours with a toilet what?!?

“Tell yourself it’s just a dream and you wake up.” Works for Depp. So not true.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE? I don’t dream bitches. I killed the sandman a long time ago. NEVER SLEEP!

Got a cousin who lives near the airport…cousin Barry.

When your jambox Foley work is subpar. You are BUSTED. Also, Glen’s mom is the second clueless parent so far. Tina’s mom being the first.

Creepy music makes a creepy story creepy. finger-knives! screee

Nike Sweater Vest pull over…you deserve to die Johnny ‘Glen’ Depp

Kittie Kittie. Chow Chow Chow. (was that a thing? I think I remember a commercial.) Chow Mix?

Hey Rod. You are a dick…and did you forgot to button your shirt up buddy. Nobody wants to see your happy trail.

A sleepover date? Pretty sure that is not a thing. I guess we got away with it from time to time. Did you guys?

Trope…girls gotta stick up for one another…especially when she is dating a creep…always cramps the good guys style.

Ahhh…listening to others have sex…best time. Have you ever had to listen to sex. What did you do?

I guess Tina wanted to wander down Rod’s happy trail after all. TINA MUST DIE.

Nice effect! What a magic trick! Freddie pushing through and then it’s solid.

I think I will go outside in only my shirty-shirt when someone whisper yells my name.

eeek! Garbage pale kids are coming for you? or Oscar the grouch? All we have are those plastic roller trash cans now. I miss the old noisy aluminum cans of my childhood. You know the ones…the ones that were booby traps for late night burglars to bumble over…or possibly you if you are trying to sneak away.

This is god? Your right glove? what do you call left hand. The left hand of god? The lefty. The other hand. Not god?

What’s your body made of? Maggots and Freon?

Do not bring Freddie back with you….do not do it…it sounds like a good plan…but no.

Tidy Whitties on an Italian?

Oh this is getting bloody Tina. No Tina…not on the walls!

Dad is the police chief.

I see why Nancy is so screwed up now. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is the Sgt.

Did we ever do that? Show dead arms hanging off gurneys on TV? Maybe in the 70s…but surely not in the 80s!

We liked big buttoned collars in the 80s. The more drunk you are…the bigger buttons you need.

Jump Scare. Rod loves to surprise people. He’s the real villain here.

Maybe if Barry buttoned his shirt once in a while we wouldn’t have to arrest him.

“Look a switchblade!” – Cop One says with surprise.

Nancy don’t wanna sleep! Nancy sleep.

“Where’s your pass! Screw your pass!” – Breaking the law!

Tina’s back…in a body bag! That is a lot of blood in that body bag BTW

It says NO STUDENTS ALLOWED Nancy! Roaming the halls with no pass as well. You are so going to get at least 2 demerits. Did you get demerits in school? If you got 10…that was a paddling.

Freddie consists of green mucus and maggots. mmm.

eeeek! It was all a nightmare. Also, my teacher is the hippie medium from Insidious I believe. She can’t get out of the horror racket. It chewed her up.

Freddie gave Nancy a hickey? Nope…it’s a burn.

Hate those inflatable bath pillows.  Don’t fall asleep in the tub…it happens all the time…well why did you give me this ugly bath pillow if you didn’t want me to sleep.

“Don’t fall asleep in the tub….but here is a pillow. A gross inflatable fungus ridden pillow…NOW DON’T FALL ASLEEP!”

Mom is going to turn down my bed for me….maybe if you had of turned dad down Dad once in a while I wouldn’t have to exist.

Let’s take some Stay Awake and watch some scary movies to avoid nightmares. Thumbs Up!

Nancy…what is that knot on your forehead? Zit cream stat!

Oh god I look 20 years old…like that is a bad thing. I no longer like Nancy.

Johnny Depp and Nancy are teeth twins.

You stay awake (guard) while I nap. WHAT, YOU FELL ASLEEP!

5th precinct sucks.

1-2…I’m watching you.

you get to star most of the movie in a body bag Tina. Sorry about your luck.

Those stepping into the paint buckets full of glue and oatmeal on the steps is bad effects. I get what they were going for. It failed. Good try though

No my favorite Pillow!!! Feathers are everywhere!

Glen…you had one job…

Mom has all the sexy lingerie. Is she a stay at home prostitute?

Glen done fell asleep on the stoop. You just know it…he’s like a narcoleptic. Wasn’t that a thing in Dream Warriors? Part 3?

“We have reason to believe….” – Glenn….do you think you are a cop? Why are you talking like that son.

Mom has a plan. A very bad plan. It probably involves Vodka.

Dad knows more than he is saying. Spit it out dad!

Katja Sleep Study. This ought to go over well.

They put that probe right on Nancy’s forehead pimple.

Dr. Roger Rabbit. Puhhhlease Freddy…

Look what I got! I got his hat…I hope his head is cold in scary dream world. Dick.

It’s real mom…touch it….PSYKE! NOPE…YOU CAN’T TOUCH IT!

Fred Krueger…it’s in the hat mom…and so are his old gross man hairs..

Nancy is going gray

Back when you could back hand your kids and not go to jail.

Noooo! Not the booze Nancy!. It’s ok…I have more…everywhere in the house apparently.

Dream Skills…I got mad dream skills.

Rules! Will they use them?

Glen: You ever read about the Balinese way of dreaming?
Nancy: No.
Glen: They got a whole system they call “dream skills”. So, if you have a nightmare, for instance like falling, right?
Nancy: Yeah.
Glen: Instead of screaming and getting nuts, you say, okay, I’m gonna make up my mind that I fall into a magic world where I can get something special, like a poem or song. They get all their art literature from dreams. Just wake up and write it down. Dream skills.
Nancy: And what if they meet a monster in their dream? Then what?
Glen: They turn their back on it. Takes away its energy, and it disappears.
Nancy: What happens if they don’t do that?
Glen: I guess those people don’t wake up to tell what happens.

Dream Skills. I got booby trap skills!

Bars on the windows…mom works fast. I mean like in a few hours she barred that whole place up.

Even put bars on the door window…like you could crawl through that.

That moment when mom asks you to go to the cellar with her.

A filthy child murderer.  The Lawyers got fat and the judges got famous.

YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! Don’t worry…mommy killed him.

Cut off shirts! ahhhh yeah! Thanks for the abs Glen.

Prisoner of Zendor? Zendar? Prisoner of Zenda!

7th Day of no sleep…11 is the record. -Nancy Says…well you got a timeline on your hands.

Whatever you do…Don’t Fall Asleep… CUT…oh yeah…that is so going in the trailer.

Miss Nude America…is that his mom or his Grandma?

Where the hell did Nancy have that Coffee Pot? it’s freaking plugged in and brewed!

No way is that Johnny Depp’s dad.

“You know what I think…I think that girl is a lunatic.” Glen’s Dad

Nancy done took so many pills she is a free bleeder. or is it the coffee.

How much Vodka does mom have stashed. I see where Nancy learned to hide beverages now.

Glenn’s dad is kind of a dick…and he is wearing some kind of cult necklace pendent.

Fred has a phone? Uh…yes…Hello…this is Fred.

Do you remember the DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince. Nightmare on my street?

 

Never. Ever. Ever. Answer a phone that is ripped out of the wall.

That phone has a tongue and it wants to lick you.

That poor phone…

Locked! Locked! Locked!

Who sleeps with a TV on their crotch?

Glenn got surcked into a bed hole.

That is a lot of blood.. Glenn is made of blood. like a whole trash can full. maybe 2.

Why did you call an ambulance? Haha…you don’t need a stretcher…you need a mop.

Hey papa…wave papa…hey papa.

How does Nancy know 20 minutes is the timeline? RULE

Is that a lifesaver? Butterscotch I hope?

Soooo…in 20 minutes time…she macgyvered booby traps…comforted mom.. 10 minutes…. fell asleep…found fred and return.

What is in that ambulance? that they need a siren. Blood for the bloodbank?

That cellar has everything. Dogs playing poker. Freddie’s knife glove. oooh…Vodka! Freddie’s Basement.

In the afterlife.. Fred collects souls

Everybody labels their stuff in this movie. Fred’s Hat. Glenn’s Headphones. Hall Monitor!

You my bitch now Freddie!!

Nancy “Home Aloned” Freddie

“Get my dad asshole!” – Nancy

Clueless parents…Clueless cops…

I would love to see all the Freddie falls.

“Daddy I did it!”

Burning foot prints…that is bad ass.

how many bed deaths are there?

What…you just saw your ex-wife get sucked into the abyss and you are going to leave your daughter in that room?

Wait…did she beat Freddie or did he beat her? Is Nancy dead?

I forgot about this ending! Is she still dreaming! Will I have to watch Part 2 to know?

Nightmare done.
