Film Theory: How To Beat Freddy Krueger! (A Nightmare on Elm Street) w/ Dead Meat

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

    You know they did this exact thing in freddy vs jason right? The people in the mental hospital are given medication so that they didn't dream... Just wanted to throw that out there...

    11:00 til the end raised some questions in my head I’ve suffered from depression for a little over a year yet for about the same time yet scientists say you need dreams to do a lot of stuff and now your saying anti depressants are the only way to get rid of dreams do those tie together somehow or am I just trying to compare apples to oranges?

    I have an idea on how to beat Freddy, What if removed our frontal lobe instead because remember if you do that you can't feel anything emotionally. you would act like an A.I and Freddy can be defeated with no fear. and if you remove your frontal lobe you won't be able to feel fear. Even if he comes back he won't be able to do anything if he can't make you afraid of him. there is scientific data stating that people have gotten there frontal lobes removed making there dreams pleasant and removing any bad dreams and nightmares. I would appreciate some feedback from anyone so I know if I am wrong.

    I would like to point out something mat pat overlooked. He is a dream demon. Demons can make their own rules in their realms, yes. But when the kids die in Freddy's dead movie, their bodies are gone. It's like they disappear. And in the ANoES remake (2010) it was showed that Freddy could keep the corpses of his victims in the dream realm. And since he can be pulled out to the real world, how does he go back in? like if you somehow try to pull him out, and end up not killing him. He kills you, how does he go back? Does he teleport? he may have that ability, but in the real world, he doesn't. So how exactly can he go back? And certainly, you may be able to beat him by merely lucid dreaming.

    Which in turn if he is somehow able to go back, doesn't that mean he can pull you in with him somehow? not like him physically pulling you in like him being pulled out.

    The reason Freddy kills in your dreams is because he was burned alive in his basement by a angry mob tired that Freddy was terrorizing their children but before Freddy died completely two dream demons came up to him they would make him Immortal but the catch was that the price would be his soul so unless the demons became so afraid of him that they would submit to him and give his soul back he would have to do their bidding.

    easy way to defeat him:intentionaly sleep and lure him into the real world since in the real world he is a normal person and remember the dream demons gave him powers so if you lure him into the real world its gonna be an easy task but you should still be carefull with those 6 inch long knifes
