An average movie

Obviously, since  'Nightmare on Elm street' was a success at the box-office, they quickly came up with a sequel. Since I really liked the first installment, I was quite eager to see this sequel but it turned out to be a disappointment. Apparently, it was an even bigger success at the box-office but it has been rightfully criticized ever since its release. Indeed, pretty much everything going from... read more

Mention the second ELM STREET film to a movie geek and they’ll probably look ponderous before exclaiming ‘oh yeah, the gay one!”. The reputation is totally deserved as well, but that doesn’t make it a bad film.
A failure to provide a reasonable rationale for the actions of your main antagonist however does a good job of making it a bad film. Every horror franchise seems to have a fi... read more

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: Freddy Krueger is decidedly very terrifying. The make up effects. The tone, it’s even more darker and grimmer than the first one, if that is humanly possible. Mark Patton Con: For some, this is one of the weaker entities, of the series. Others site the “context” of the film."

This revenge is more damp than it is terrifying

“The original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' is still to me one of the scariest and best horror films there is, as well as a truly great film in its own right and introduced us to one of the genre's most iconic villains in Freddy Krueger. It is always difficult to do a sequel that lives up to a film as good as 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' let alone one to be on the same level.

'A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge' is not to me the dreadful film as reputed, but, while its attempts to do something different is admirable, it should have been much better than it turned out to be. It is very difficult to not feel disappointed when you inevitably compare 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' to its first sequel and find that the drop in quality is so significant and hard to ignore.

“Ah, Nightmare On Elm Street. The franchise that has made us all afraid to sleep at night and introduced people to the concept of a killer who can kill people in their dreams in the form of Mr Freddy Krueger, of course Freddy became so popular that merchandise of the character was made and he got his own tv show in the form of Freddy's Nightmares. I think it's time I talked about the second movie Freddy's Revenge. In the franchise in general this one is often dubbed the 'homoerotic' Elm Street movie because of the supposed subtext which probably wasn't intentional, but the lead actor is gay in real life so maybe it was...I don't know, originally they didn't want Robert Englund back as Freddy and were considering getting someone else but they brought Robert Englund back and he reprised the r” read more

Movies That I Changed My Mind About (51 movies items)

"A change in tone, Freddy Krueger being a bit out of place, and the fact that seemingly since everyone else hated the film, I felt like I was obliged to also hate it too. But now, it’s one of my favourite films, in the series!"

"27.10. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Kakkososaa kohtaan ei kovin lämpöisät muistikuvat ollut, vaikka useammankin kerran saksitulta VHS:ltä katsottu onkin, mutta uusinnalle kiinnostus kuitenkin vähintään samalla tasolla, kuin edeltäjänsä osalta. Kolmosesta viitoseen ovatkin tyystin näkemättä, joten niitä kohtaan on vähän ujompi ja väistämättä erilainen mielenkiinto. Rohkean ja kekseliään Heather Langenkampin sijasta kakkososa tarjoaa scream queen- Mark Pattonin aika vahvasti ho"

“In the franchise in general this one is often dubbed the 'homoerotic' Elm Street movie because of the supposed subtext which probably wasn't intentional, but the lead actor is gay in real life so maybe it was...I don't know, originally they didn't want Robert Englund back as Freddy and were considering getting someone else but they brought Robert Englund back and he reprised the role in this and all of the others up until Freddy VS Jason. I like a lot of things about this, mainly the idea of Freddy possessing someone and controlling them into killing others while under his control, and also the scene of Freddy coming out of the main character's body....is one impressive sequence.

This definitely handled the monstrous transformation as a sort of metaphor better than My Demon Lov” read more
