movietrivia99 The first time Robert Englund tried on the infamous Freddy glove, he cut himself◆ It would take about 3 hours to get Englund into his Freddy make-up◆David Warner was originally slated to play Freddy Krueger. Makeup tests were done, but Warner had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts◆ The very first time we see Freddy in the movie, he isn't being played by Robert Englund, but by special-effects man Charles Belardinelli. It is the scene where Freddy jumps up from behind Tina in the very beginning◆ A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 1 was Johnny Depp's film debut. One of the main reasons Depp was chosen was because the producer's daughter thought he was cute & dreamy◆ Wes Craven came up with the idea for this film after reading in the newspaper about a group of Cambodian refugees who came to America to escape the reign of (Pol Pot) and within a year of arriving, three men had died, with the situation the same in each case. A  young, healthy man would have a nightmare, then refuse to sleep for as long as possible. Upon finally falling asleep from exhaustion, the man awoke screaming, then died. Autopsy results revealed that they had not died because of heart failure, they had simply died. It was this lack of cause that intrigued Wes Craven so much. Medical authorities have since called the phenomenon (Asian Death Syndrome)◆ The inspiration for Freddy came from several sources in Wes Craven's childhood. Fred Krueger was a schoolmate of Craven's with whom he had share a newspaper route, and who had bullied him for several years◆ In The (Last House on the Left) Craven also used this experience as inspiration, calling the villain Krug◆ Freddy's appearance (especially the dirty clothes and hat) was inspired by a hobo who Craven saw staring at him through his window one day when he was 10◆ 1d
  •   movietrivia99 Craven never wanted the film to be an ongoing franchise. He dropped out of working on the first sequel because New Line leader (Robert Shaye) demanded a twist ending.
    Originally, Craven planned for the film to end by having Nancy kill Krueger by ceasing to believe in him, then awakes to discover that everything that happened in the film was an elongated nightmare◆ The "melting staircase" in Nancy's dream was Robert Shaye's idea. It was created using pancake mix◆
    Freddy's sweater is based on the DC Comics character (Plastic Man) and Craven chose to make Krueger's sweater red and green, after reading an article in Scientific American that said the two most clashing colors to the human retina were this particular combination◆ Over 500 gallons of fake blood were used for the special effects production. For the famous blood geyser sequence (Johnny Depp's death), the film makers used the same revolving room set that was used for Tina's death. They put the set so that it was upside down and attached the camera so that it looked like the room was right side up. A lot of the blood spilled out of the bedroom window and hit Craven and Heather Langenkamp off camera◆ A thick dark color coded plastic was used for the scene where Freddy appears to be coming through the walls above Nancy◆ Heather Langenkamp beat out Demi Moore, Courteney Cox, Tracey Gold and Jennifer Grey for the role of Nancy. Langenkamp returned as Nancy in (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) and also played herself in Wes Craven's New Nightmare◆ 1d
  •   movietrivia99 The scene where Nancy is attacked by Freddy in her bathtub was shot using a bottomless tub built over a swimming pool◆ Johnny Depp accompanied his friend Jackie Earle Haley to the auditions. Instead of Haley being chosen for a role, it was Depp who was spotted by director Wes Craven and was asked to read for a part. Haley would go on to play Freddy in the 2010 remake 26 years later◆ This was the second movie produced by New Line Cinema. New Line was saved from bankruptcy by the success of this film, and it was nicknamed "the house that Freddy built"◆ The scene were Freddy's arms elongate were achieved by having men with fishing poles on each side of the alley marionetting a set of puppet arms attached to Robert Englund◆The melting staircase scene was shot using oatmeal, bisquick, and glue◆ The little girl skipping rope was the daughter of the couple whose home was used as Tina's house◆ Charlie Sheen was interested in the role of Glen, but he wanted more money than the production could afford◆ Special makeup effects artist (David B. Miller) based Freddy's disfigurement on photographs of burn victims he saw in the UCLA Medical Centre◆ Robert Englund based the physicality of Freddy on Klaus Kinski's performance in the film (Nosferatu the Vampyre)◆ During the scene where Nancy is running towards her house with Freddy right behind her, Heather Langenkamp cut her foot and required stitches.
