Movie Reviews

Best of the series, by far
Tony | 11/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Where's all this hatred coming from, why all the bashing? I personally think this is the of the bunch. I love the dream sequences, there very dark and disturbing. Freddie is still scary in this movie, the last time he would be in the series. I loved the whole storyline of this movie, Jesse finds the old diary of Nancy, the heroine from part 1, and dreams of a scarred, razor clawed monster that tries to take his body, and wants him to do all the dirty work. Sure the biker bar and s&m references were kind of odd, but they were effective. And of course, this one boosts the legendary "pool scene""
Good, but some parts didn't fit

"Surprisingly enough, I liked this sequel to a much much better movie. You can't really take horror sequels too seriously, and this movie is proof of that. It definetly takes you on a different twist compared to Nancy's story in the original. Basically, a teenager and his family move into Nancy's house 5 years after the "incident" and weird things start to happen (Birds spontaneously combust) and of course the star of the movie starts having Freddy dreams. But in contrast to the original, Freddy starts to take over this boy's body, and well, I don't want to spoil it for you. It is a pretty well mapped out movie. There is tons of gore, even the kind that makes you cringe a little bit. Freddy kind of stays in the shadows and eventually pulls into real-life, which is the problem, he just starts to pop up in real-life without any explanation, kind of inane. Oh well. Still a good movie, I suggest you go to your local video store and rent it if you haven't seen it."
Good movie,weak sequel

"A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the best movies from the 80's so Nightmare 2:Freddy's Revenge tends to be bashed for being too slow or for being too much of a departure from the original.I personnaly believe this movie is in-between.Certainly nowhere near the original but there are many worse movies.So,anyway,the best horror icon from the 80's,Freddy,is back and he wants to possess a boy's body to keep going with the killing.Here's a huge change compared to the original.I admit it's weird to see a Nightmare where nightmares aren't the main attraction but there are still a few to see.In this sequel,Freddy is just like he is in the original.So he does not have a whole lot of dialogue and he's still very much in the dark.If you expect a movie as scary as the original,though.....The cast is decent but I find myself preferring the original's cast.Of course,one of the movie's weirdest parts,it's all the homoerotic content.It's kinda intriguing because you get to wonder what Jesse's sexual preferences are but it's never taken very far.The first half of the movie is mostly watchable but it does not pick up until the second half which is disappointing.The original was great from beginning to end.This one has so many slow spots that you might lose interest before the fun begins.The climax of the movie isn't quite as bad as people claim.I like it but the original was more satisfying overall.Well,this movie deserves 3 stars in my opinion.Good movie but it pales compared to its prequel and that's what I hate."
NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST BUT A GOOD HORROR MOVIE
