So long as we’ve got motion pictures to look at, there’ll all the time be fan theories to go together with them. And as any fan of horror flicks can let you know, that style won’t ever die, both. So, what do you get while you mix the 2? Why, horror film fan theories, in fact, that are the perfect variety.
When the reboot of A Nightmare On Elm Road arrived in 2010, it broke field workplace data for midnight showings. However it carried out so poorly after sequel was by no means made. Regardless of all that, the backstory of Freddy and what he did to these children, and the way the mother and father acquired their revenge is a few loopy stuff, however one thing that’s by no means actually been mentioned is how the villain may do the issues he may do within the kids’s desires.
A horror transfer buff from Reddit who goes by the title Softhandsam wrote a small however fascinating concept on couple years in the past and it’s now resurfaced on-line. Everyone knows how Freddy can get into desires and wreak some severe havoc, killing these whose nightmares he invades, proper? However what about Tina and his potential to stroll on ceilings, or making a puppet out of Phillip? Are these simply among the unusual issues that occur within the desires he invades? Or is there one thing extra there?
Properly, after he goes by way of a brief historical past of the movies and critiques what we learn about dream warriors, and Freddy along with his soul consuming methods, the Reddit consumer has this to say:
So right here is the idea. Within the authentic NOES Freddy just isn’t fairly as highly effective as he would appear to be in later movies, that is in all probability meta, as a result of finances and particular results limitations of the tiime, but we could have a greater reply.
A deleted scene from NOES the unique states that Nancy had a brother and it’s implied he died from Freddy in a method or one other.
So here’s what we all know. Freddy kills and absorbs the spirits of youngsters who’ve powers of their desires, and he was doing it even earlier than Nancy and her gang. The one potential we’re proven him being granted by the dream demons is the power to journey by way of desires and be “everlasting” with no point out of the loopy talents he has within the desires.
So, one may logically assume that a lot of Freddy’s extra outlandish talents, resembling strolling on the ceiling within the first film or shapeshifting an entire bunch within the third, are literally dream powers he stole from children whose souls he consumed.
So there was seemingly a child who may fly in his desires and one other who could possibly be something he needed, and after Freddy absorbed them he makes use of their talents to extend the zanyness of the kills.
This additionally explains the more and more unusual methods through which he’s killing individuals, he’s making an attempt out his new powers.
This additionally suits according to Alice being the Dream Grasp in quantity 4, she will rival Freddy as a result of she is absorbing the powers of her mates as an alternative of Freddy absorbing them. So when he was defeated in quantity three he misplaced all of his powers besides with the ability to present up in your nightmares and kill you. Thus although he was stealing souls all through the movie, since Alice was getting the powers, he was nonetheless fairly screwed.

So, not solely does Freddy trespass in desires that aren’t his, killing the children who’re having them. However after consuming their souls, he then takes the powers they dream that they’ve? Simply while you thought the man couldn’t get any extra despicable, eh?
Inform us, although, what do you consider this little blast from the previous fan concept about A Nightmare On Elm Road? Pontificate within the feedback part down beneath and hold these fingers crossed within the hope that we’ll get to see extra of Freddy’s powers when (or if) the reboot lastly will get correctly remade.
