The story is about a new family moves into an old house on Elm st. and their 17 year old boy starts having nightmares of a burn old man in a green and red sweater. What he dreams is slowly becoming too real to be true. This movie is chilling and frighting.

Not really sure how a formula that worked in the original is then altered in a sequel. The plot may have been entertaining but the idea of having a conclusion that elicits another film was too obvious. Bringing in more people to kill and making it gory doesn't mean a better film. The bisexual innuendos (no chicks allowed sign, closeness of the male characters, etc.) doesn't help either. A mediocre effort from a growing franchise, this one misses its mark.

It's a guilty pleasure of mine. Most fans of the series will dismiss this entry for breaking a couple rules established in the first film, but they are overlooking the unique things that make this one so different from the rest.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Plot: 0/1 + Music: 1/1 + Good vs. Evil: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 5.5/10 or 55%. The master of dreams and nightmares, yielding knife fingers, and with the power to alter dream realities into his liking is approaching you. Does one kiss him, alter their own dreams to fight him, or give up and die. That's right! You kiss him! That's how you defeat Freddy here.

Review - Freddy's Revenge (1985)

Five years after the mysterious deaths on Elm Street, Jesse Walsh (Mark Patton) begins to have nightmares of murderous intent. When he discovers that the murders are actually happening, he realizes that he needs to fight his inner demon (literally) in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.

It's rare in the horror genre for the second in a series to surpass the first, but somehow director Jack Sholder pulled it off. With the help of a much improved script compared to its predecessor, we get to enjoy a more psychological twist to the Freddy Krueger killings. The effects are also a vast improvement on the original.

The movie does have its faults, however. While the writing is rather good, it can take a while to understand exactly what's going on. There is a strong blur b...

I Guess There Has to be at least One

Wow...this movie was a horrible way to follow the first. I would have thought this movie would be the 5th or 6th in the series by how bad it was.

I can't even begin to describe exactly how many things I had problems with.

Freddy possesses a boy's body to start killing for him. I understand they want a little different idea from the first one....but this one bordered on confusing.

The lead character gets possessed by Freddy. Towards the end of the movie it's Freddy doing all the killing....but you're left in your mind to be thinking "Are all of these people seeing Freddy or are they seeing Jessie, the lead?"

When on screen we are seeing the Freddy skin people are still approaching him as if they are seeing Jessie. They are trying to talk him down and hesitating on doi...
