    It appears both canonical to the Nightmare series but oddly not canonical to the Nightmare series, as Springwood is now a ghost town, as Freddy has killed all the children and sent all the adults insane (this is not a spoiler, the movie opens with this), however, we are meant to believe that if Freddy's Dead is set in a future 1999, ten years after Dream Child, then the Freddy…
