A brand new 5-disc Blu-ray collection of the entire Nightmare on Elm Street series has just dropped a bombshell in the form of a revelatory deleted scene:
Nancy Thompson had a little brother or sister.
The scene is an extended version of the time Nancy's mom, Marge, tells her about the parents of Elm Street taking revenge on Freddy Krueger for killing local kids, only in this version, there's a twist: They weren't just any kids, they were THEIR kids. The vital moment comes at around 1:35.
''Glenn, Rod, Tina... they all had a brother or sister once. You too, Nancy. You weren't always an only child.''
This revelation certainly gives new depth to Nancy's hatred of Freddy Krueger. I'll bear this snippet in mind the next time I rewatch Nightmare on Elm Street for the millionth time. Maybe Nancy's deceased older brother or sister could have some bearing on the plot for the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street reboot?
