Check out Dead Meat! ►
Never Miss A Film Theory! ►
There have been MANY installments to the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise over the years. I've been looking through them with my current free time and realised that NO ONE is really "winning" against Freddy Krueger in these movies. He's always there once they, inevitably, fall asleep. I want to figure out how you can actually BEAT Freddy Krueger at his own nightmarish games.

    i would like to take a second to thank matpat for everything, i have been with you for as long as i can remember, and as i grow older i notice that some things he has talked about are the things that i have learned about in my math and science class, i now understand some of the things that he is talking about, and he has helped me grow as a learner. before, i struggled to pay attention in classes because of my ADHD, but now i realize how interesting science could actually be, and matpat, if you are reading this i want you to know that you have been my role model, and we all love you! thank you for helping me i the times i really needed it. i am also adding that 2 months ago i learned from my friend about rem and i understand everything you are talking about

    I kinda already do this. I have depression and anxiety and take daily meds that being said I still have some dreams not many but every now and then I do have a dream. So I think your answer is right, but I think you would need to take a high dosage for it to work all the time. Now those times I do have dreams could’ve been a fluke or I may have forgotten my meds that day but still I don’t think this answer is 100% effective.

    Original comment was about Lucid dreaming but others have pointed to the 3rd movie with the wizard master. But the dreamer did cause the chair to explode and healed his own leg wound. It went wrong when he directly attacked Freddy, who says "he didn't *believe* in fairytales" so perhaps in a way it could have worked if it is a battle of will, belief and dream manipulation skills. Even if this still means Freddy always has the advantage. Ps I refuse to believe Matt can't complete a rubik cube.
