Freddy's just around the corner...taglines

Nancy Thompson

  • It's now or never. I'm not gonna kid you, this is as dangerous as it gets. If you die in this dream it's for real. Nobody has to go in that doesn't want to.

Freddy Krueger

  • You're mine now, piggy.
  • What's wrong, Joey? Getting tongue tied?
  • What a rush!
  • Welcome to Prime Time, bitch!

Roland Kincaid

  • Let's snuff the sucka.
  • Ain't gonna dream no more, no more. Ain't gonna dream no more. All night long I sing this song. Ain't gonna dream no more.
  • Phillip, wake up... Have a nice stroll, asshole.
  • He couldn't hack it, so he got nailed. Period.
  • Great, now my dick's killin' me.
  • [shouting] Yo, Freddy! Where you hiding at, you burnt-faced pussy?! You think your hot shit with the little mute kid, don't ya? Well, let me see you come get a piece of me! Krueger, pussy! Yeah, I knew he was a little chicken.


  • Title Card: Sleep, those little slices of death, how I loathe them.
  • Phillip Anderson: [to Nancy] Hi. Welcome to the snake pit.
  • Taryn White: In my dreams I'm beautiful. [flicks open two switchblades] And bad!
  • William 'Will' Stanton: In my dreams I can stand. My legs are strong. In my dreams I am the Wizard Master.
  • Little Girl: Freddy's home.
  • Little Girl: [in Nancy's old house] This is where he takes us.
  • Marcie: [exposes her breasts to Joey] Do you like my body?
  • Kristen Parker: [while being carried away to the quiet room] You stupid bitch, you're killing...you're killing us!
  • Lt. Donald Thompson: [to Freddy] I killed you once before, you son of a bitch!
  • Sister Mary Helena/Amanda Krueger: [to Dr. Neil Gordon] If your only faith is science, doctor, it may be you that's laid to rest.


Freddy: [Freddy attacks Kristen as a snake. Kristen pulls Nancy into her dream. Nancy, after finding out that Kristen is being eaten alive by Freddy, she grabs a shard of glass and jabs it into Freddy's eye. Freddy screams in pain and lets Kristen free. He then drops his eyes on Nancy.] You!
Nancy: Oh, my God. Run!

Freddy: Will, you look tired. Have a seat.
Will: No thanks. I'm fine just the way I am.
Freddy: For now, maybe. But when you wake up, it's back... in the saddle... again.

Freddy: [in Kristen's dream] I said, where's the fucking bourbon?!
[decapitates Kristen's mom]
Freddy: You should listen to your mother.
Elaine Parker: [Elaine's head is still talking while decapitated] Goddamn it, Kristen, you ruin everything! Every time I bring a man home you spoil it! You know what your shrink says? You're just trying to get a little attention!

Dr. Simms: [Phillip is killed by Freddy. The group meeting is in session and the kids are talking about Phillip's death, when Taryn says that Freddy killed him (specifically saying, "That bastard murdered him!")] I'm not going to take any more of this. How much longer are you going to go on blaming your dreams for your own weaknesses?
Roland: Lady, how much longer you gonna keep blowing smoke up our ass?!
Dr. Gordon: That's enough, Kincaid!
Dr. Simms: There will be no repeat occurrences of last night's events. From now on your doors will be locked during sleeping hours. We'll start a policy of evening sedation for everybody.
Roland: [Jumping out of his seat] The fuck you will! Anybody tries drugs on me gets his ass kicked!
Dr. Simms: Well, you just bought yourself a night in the quiet room, Mister. Now sit down!
Roland: Fuck you! You sit down!

Max: This slump over here, this is Kincaid. Now I want you to take a good look. See, he gets himself thrown in the quiet room so often that you probably won't see a whole lot of him. Ain't that right, cool breeze?
Roland: Right. I do it so I don't have to look at your ugly face all the time.
Max: Yeah, I love you too.

Kristen: [while fighting with the hospital crew, she grabs a scalpel and cuts Max's arm. She then poises to attack again] Five, six, grab a crucifix. Seven, eight, better stay up late. Nine, ten, never... never...
Nancy: [appearing at the doorway] Never sleep again. (walks toward Kristen) Where did you learn that rhyme?

Nancy: [referring to the model house that Kristen built herself] I used to live in this house.
Kristen: That's just a house I dream about.

Kristen: [talking about Freddy] The man in my dreams, he's real, isn't he?
Nancy: He's real.

Nancy: [at a group meeting] I know who's trying to kill you.
Kincaid: Save it lady. We're not in the mood.
Nancy: He wears a dark brown hat. He has razors on his right hand. His skin is badly burned.
Taryn: Wh-who is he?
Nancy: His name is Freddy Krueger. He was a child murderer when he was alive. After he died, he became something much, much worse. Six years ago, he killed my friends. He almost killed me. And now he's back.
Will: But why is he after us?
Taryn: Yeah, what did we do?
Nancy: It's not you. It's your parents, my parents. They burned him alive, and now we're paying for their sins. You are the last of the Elm Street children.
Will: Mom and Dad? That's crazy, they never mentioned anything like that.
Taryn: [sarcastically] Oh yeah, that's just the kind of thing your parents want to let you know. "Good night darling, say your prayers. Oh by the way your dad and I just torched some maniac last night".

Will: I'm in.
Taryn: Me, too.
Roland: Let's go kick the motherfucker's ass all over Dreamland.
Will: Yeah!

Will: [in Will's dream, Freddy attacks him with a spiky wheelchair. As the wheelchair wheels toward him, he says, "I am the wizard master. I am the wizard master!" and transforms into a powerful-looking wizard. He then shoots power from his hands and destroys the wheelchair] In the name of Lowrek, Prince of Elves, demon begone!
[zaps at Krueger with magical beams while running toward him]
Freddy: Aah!
[grabs Will and halts zapping]
Freddy: Sorry, kid. I don't believe in fairy tales.
[kills Will]

[Taryn finds herself in a back alley face-to-face with Freddy]
Freddy: Welcome home, Taryn. Look familiar?
Taryn: [brandishing two switchblade knives] Okay, asshole, let's dance!

Freddy: [while fighting with Taryn, Taryn stabs Freddy with a switchblade. He yells in pain] Taryn...Taryn!
Taryn: What?
Freddy: Why, uh...why should we fight? We're old friends, you and I. Remember? [heroin needles form on his fingertips] Let's get high.

[in Jennifer's dream, Jennifer is watching Zsa Zsa Gabor being interviewed with Dick Cavett]
Dick Cavett: Can I ask you a question?
Zsa Zsa Gabor: Why certainly.
[Dick Cavett turns into Freddy Krueger]
Freddy: Who gives a fuck what you think?!
[slashes at Gabor]

Nancy: He's strong; he's never been this strong.
Freddy: Yes. The souls of the children give me strength.

Freddy: [holding Joey over the balcony] Joey, look. All the little piggies come home.
Nancy: Let him go, Krueger!
Freddy: Your wish is my command.

Max: Girl, what are you doing?
Jennifer: Watching TV.
Max: I can see that. Why don't you read a book? You watch too much damn TV.
Jennifer: Research.
Max: [sarcastically] Oh, you gonna be a big TV star.
Jennifer: Wait and see.
Max: [attempts to turn TV off] Yeah, well if Simms catches you here after lights out, she's gonna chew my ass off.
Jennifer: [interrupting Max] I gotta stay up, Max!
Max: Jennifer...
Jennifer: I can't handle the nightmare. Not after Phillip.
Max: All right, but I never saw you.
Jennifer: Thanks, Max.

Freddy: [in Jennifer's dream, the TV suddenly explodes into static. Jennifer then hears children reciting the Freddy Krueger song, and then a girl scream. She pounds the TV; two arms come out on either side of the TV. Jennifer screams as the arms grab her and Freddy's head appears from the top of the TV] This is it, Jennifer. Your big break in TV.
[Jennifer screams]
Freddy: Welcome to prime time, bitch!

[slams Jennifer's head into the TV]

Sister Mary Helena/Amanda Krueger: [to Dr. Gordon] Only one thing can save the children now. The unquiet spirit must be laid to rest...
Nancy: [walks in] Neil? What are you doing up here?
Dr. Gordon: Oh, I was just talking to...
[turns around and Mary Helena is gone]
Nancy: To who?

Kristen: [at a group meeting, after Freddy kills Phillip] He's turning us against each other so we will be weak.
Roland: Bullshit.
Nancy: No, she's right.


  • Freddy's just around the corner...
  • If you think you'll get out alive, You must be dreaming.
  • If You Think You're Ready For Freddy, Think Again!
