A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge Review

Synopsis:

A teenage boy is haunted in his dreams by Freddy Krueger who is out to possess him in order to continue his murder spree in the real world.

This Freddy Krueger movie puts you in an inner battle with a male teenager whom freddy possesses from time to time to wreak havoc on the kids of Elm Street. I didn’t like this one to much. I thought A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985) was totally different from what I liked about the first Freddy Krueger movie. There were many undertones that made this horror movie seem more weird than enjoyable. Writer David Chaskin and director Jack Sholder made a complete mess in my opinion. Freddy Krueger coming out to possess a young boy was a good idea in some ways but that makes Freddy a waking demon which he is not, Freddy Krueger is meant to haunt nightmares.
