I'm not much of a horror fan, but every now and then I'll watch one. My only really favorite rewatchable 'horror' film being Poltergeist. Last night I came across Nightmare 1 on Encore for the first time. Having never seen it before, it wasn't a bad movie. The actor playing Freddie seemed to be having general fun with the role, and that always makes for an interesting villain. However, toward the end it got rather confusing. Right around the time a firey Freddie is attacking the mother in the bed. He dissapears into the sheets, and the movie is apparently over.... So, what happens next? The lead girl turns to leave, he re-appears, and she 'defeats' him by turning her back on him as he dissapears.. Now, I saw the part earlier where they explained the logic behind this, but if this is the case, how and why does Freddie come back toward the very end again? Let alone how the girl is able to go from a dark bedroom into a lighted outside scene.. Are these things explained away in further sequals(not to mention if the leading lady survived the picture), or is it just left open to speculation?
