This is one of the best horror sequels to a horror masterpiece! Nancy Thompson returns to help troubled teens battle Freddy Krueger, using dream powers. Fun characters, interesting deaths, and nice story.

And who could argue with people finally realizing that these are dreams and within them, anything can be possible (it's almost like The Matrix year ahead in it's time). And get this....Lawrence Fishburne was in this movie too.....coincidence??????????
