Zsa Zsa Gabor Cameo

Zsa Zsa Gabor is about to be sliced across her face by Freddy.

However, Jennifer falls asleep even after purposely burning herself in an attempt to stay awake. In her dream, she changes the channel to find an interview between Zsa Zsa Gabor and host Dick Cavett. The short conversation between Gabor and Cavett was about Gabor promoting people to reach out to their dreams and pursue acting careers if they desire to become involved with the film making business.

During the interview, Cavett asked Gabor if he could ask her another question. After positively complying, Cavett suddenly turns into Freddy Krueger and points his razor glove to Gabor and angrily asked, "Who gives a fuck what you think?". Then Freddy stood from his chair across from Gabor and attempted to slice Gabor across her face. Before the action could be done, the television shuts off and eventually, Jennifer was killed by Freddy, who turned into the television and smashed Jennifer's face through the television's glass monitor.
