Freddy wasn't easily scared, but this time he was in trouble.
Cenobites in the Dream World? Probably looking for him.
He cheated death once and escaped their hell with the help of dream demons.
But he knew they would find him eventually. He needed a plan and a good one.
Freddy tried his best but the Cenobites were far more powerful.
"Come back with us now Freddy, enough games!"
Freddy was about to lose. Pinhead had him already chained.
But Freddy always had a trick up his sleeve.
He gave his ally Candyman the oppurtunity to strike back.
As the fight had already weakened Pinhead, his end was near.
Freddy then took advantage of the situation and betrayed Candyman.
He trapped both of them in a dream mirror, and broke it.
Freddy knew they would eventually escape one day, but it would take time.
Until then, time to enjoy the victory and have fun!
