10 More Exact Moments We Knew Horror Movie Characters Were Doomed

9. Joey Doesn't Learn His Lesson - A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

Final Destination
New Line Cinema

Joey Crusel was one of the survivors in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. As part of the titular group, he was a temporarily mute teenager who had a crush on the local nurse. Freddy Krueger exploited this by appearing as the nurse during Joey's nightmare, luring him, then placing him in a coma.

Thankfully, Nancy Thompson and the rest of the Dream Warriors would rescue Crusel and save the day.

In the next movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Freddy would return and exact his revenge on the group of teens. First, he takes down Kincaid then goes after Joey next. He appears as a naked woman inside the young man's water bed and entrances him. Not learning his lesson from before, a gullible Joey leans in toward the girl.

It is at this moment that we know that Joey might not be so lucky this time around.

And true to form, Freddy Krueger bursts from the bed and kills the boy. Joey's mother then finds her son dead inside the water bed.
