    Isnt the glove pointless?

    Ok so in the original NOES the glove was Freddy's weapon, he used it to kill the kids. He was a child murderer.

    In the remake he was not a child murderer but had other interests...so whats the reason for him to have a glove? I just realized this last night as we watched the remake. Its a cool glove and all but its never really explained or justified, unlike in the brilliant original.

    My guess would be to injure them into not being able to move so that he could perform his terrible deeds.

    But the kids werent injured as he had his thing with them more than once. Injuring them would have made their parents notice.

    I guess he could've used it as a threat ("If you tell I use this"). The film just never really gives any reason for the glove.

    maybe a manifestation of his angst of being the creepy janitor guy/gardener. It's the ugly inside him released.

    seems like I remember them going out of their way showing him using that clawed gardening tool in several of the flashback scenes.

    Also in the flashback there were scratch marks along Kris's back when she was a child. So he may have used it as a torture device against them.

    In the original director's cut (before Brad Fuller et al got hold of it, cutting and re-shooting) Freddy used to chase the kids round the pre-school garden with his hand rake. This all the while the kids chanted the "One, two, Freddy's comin' for you" song. What started out as a game became far more deadly. Eventually leading Freddy into building a weapon to scar the kids with.

    Since the Remake Freddy was more of a pervert It's not far fetched to think He just had a dark Kink.
