Alice, who survived Freddy in the past, is pregnant but is finding that Freddy has different plans for her unborn baby. the visual effect's and the make-up are the only good things in the movie because this movie stinks of shit.

Good ideas are found in moments throughout that show what a more descent movie this could've been. The main problem with 4 and 5 is that they were both rushed to quickly to theaters.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0.5/1 + Good vs. Evil: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 = 5/10 or 50%. It's over man, game over! Freddy attempts to possess an unborn child so that he can be reborn. The Exorcist it ain't, the special effects get a shot in the arm, but this ended things on a "Damn, we need a reboot! Bad!" note.

Continuing the plight of the fourth film, this Nightmare has a weaker plot, even if the FX are getting better. Story-wise this is one of my least favorite Nightmare films. What started strong is now wearing thin.

Again still going downhill from part 4, we run into yet another ehhh sequel. At least they got the same actors to play their previous roles. The deaths were more well thought out and at this point you're really looking for specific character attributes that you know will be played off of to kill someone. I won't elaborate out of respect for those who may not have seen the movie yet; but it's fun to figure out what trait Freddy is going to wack someone as. I think still at this time, the franchise was concentrating on Freddy in the real world than utilizing the niche they had on the dream world.

Review - The Dream Child (1989)

When Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox) began having dreams that Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) was coming back, she knew she had to warn her friends. Once again, the last remaining person in the Elm Street chain must conquer over evil in A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child.

And now we begin the descent into madness as the Elm Street series begins to wrap up. You could tell from the beginning of this one that they were seriously desperate for ideas and that anything would do at this point. Once again we have Freddy resurrecting for no apparent reason other than cash for the studio. As a horror figure, he's not even interesting anymore, rather the movies have become more about the subpar deaths than the fear factor.

Another rather large and obvious downfall is the soundtrack, whic...
