Hypnocil is a drug used by people in A Nightmare on Elm Street (film series) for multiple purposes, though these may overlap.

  • "management of psychotic disorders" - This appears to be it's main intended purpose. However, this isn't emphasized much in the films.
  • sedation - This isn't emphasized much in the films.
  • dream suppression, with emphasis on nightmare suppression - This is what is emphasized in the films.

Freddy vs. Jason

Although it was not approved by the FDA, that didn't stop Westin Hills Psychiatric Hospital from using it to test on other human beings - with some of the people who overdosed on Hypnocil falling into a comatose state. The cast in Freddy Vs. Jason wanted to get a hold of these pills to stop Freddy from stalking them in their dreams.

While in the hospital, the kids found the room but it was locked from the inside by their friend who snuck off to get stoned. Freddy found out where he was hiding and turned into a caterpillar like creature and possessed him. While he was in control of him, he locked the doors and dumped all the Hypnocil down the drain.
