A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge 
Review - Freddy's Revenge (1985)
3/4 stars

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 between what is reality and what isn't, and at times it can make things more confusing than it should. The acting is very 80's-style acting, in that it's not the greatest, but it wasn't superb in the first one either, so that can't be held against it too much. I will say though that the acting does outdo that of the original.

Freddy Krueger once again makes a great villain, which is interesting to say because he is less involved in this one. I don't want to write any spoilers, so I'll just leave that there. The film does have some more humorous moments (albeit some unintentional), which gradually became a staple of the franchise.

“Freddy's Revenge” ranks up as a very good 80's slasher flick, even if it can't beat the original as a classic. If had to choose between the two though, I'd probably pick this one on story alone.

Acting: 7/10
Writing: 7/10
Video/Editing: 8/10
Audio/Music: 9/10
Entertainment: 9/10

Final Score: 8/10
