Here’s something funny. Nothing happens of interest in The Dream Master, Freddy anonymously kills some kids and makes wise cracks. Tons of stuff happens in The Dream Child and yet it’s a completely joyless slog.

"Re-watch - Oct. 21st While this one is far from great, it's at least an improvement over the previous entry in that it actually maintains a darker tone overall. Freddy still gets plenty of quips along the way, but it doesn't seem like the deaths are designed solely to deliver the punchlines. The film earns points for finding a fresh spin to put on the idea, but also loses some points for being obvious about what's going on. Granted I've seen this before, but it's always been apparent early on w"
