How Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare Secretly Defied Nintendo

This sneaky inclusion of the Power Glove in Freddy’s Dead also could have helped Nintendo in the long run. In the documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, Talalay said of this unapproved product placement, “It sold more Power Gloves, and Nintendo never sued.” The Power Glove was famously faulty and probably would have completely disappeared into obscurity had it not been referenced in the popular Nightmare on Elm Street series. The maverick independent film attitude of Talalay and Shaye at New Line Cinema paid off for both the film and for the then-flagging Nintendo.

Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare was treated at the time as the end of an era, and the filmmakers were unafraid of putting every crazy idea they had on the screen for Freddy’s “final” outing. Rachel Talalay stayed true to her commitment to the film’s bizarre tone, and she knew the risks of including the Power Glove against Nintendo’s wishes. With the support of producer Robert Shaye, she put it in the film anyway. She was happy with the final product and fondly remembers how she fought for the video game sequence – the only time in the film that Freddy technically uses his glove to kill – to give audiences something they will likely never see again.
