    In case you were wondering, being turned into a human Pinocchio sucks. From NOES 3, Freddy says "Jump!" and this guy says, "How high?"

    Little-known trivia fact: the original music for this scene was "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon.

    Yes, your parents are right, sitting too close to the television screen is bad for your health - especially when a sociopathic ghost is involved. This classic kill clip features long-forgotten celebs Dick Cavett and Zsa Zsa Gabor, who apparently accidently wandered onto the Nightmare film set after they wrapped up a guest appearances on The Love Boat.

    One of the most brutal and weird deaths ever conjured up in Freddy's dream world is this cool little snuff job from NOES 4. This one begins as a send-up of the 80s workout craze and ends up turning into something out of Kafka. Truly inspired slaughter with a great tag line at the end!

    Taryn was doing pretty well in this knife fight until the Fredster used dirty tricks against her - throwing her old vices back in her face to get the better of her. Special shout-out to the victim's awesome mohawk though. Punk's not dead, girlfriend - even if you are!
