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
