#5. Karen's Head was written to explode after Freddy injected her with the needle glove, but the prop looked terrible so they went another direction.
#6. The Fire Department always had to be on set when shooting the Boiler Room scenes as the gas and smoke was so thick it would constantly make the Cast sick.
