An average movie

12 years, 6 months ago at Mar 11 13:38
In fact, I already saw this movie but it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. To be honest, when I was watching it again, I couldn’t remember a thing so it apparently didn’t make much of an impression the first time around but it made sense. Indeed, it was probably the weakest sequel in this burn-out franchise and it was pretty obvious that ... read more

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. In theory the different elements of this movie should stack up to something truly great, in actuality it just ends up being subjectively the worst of the Elm Street films.

A long way from a dream

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 Stree... read more

" Alice, having survived the previous installment of the Nightmare series, finds the deadly dreams of Freddy Krueger starting once again. This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world. The only one who can stop Freddy is his dead mother, but can Alice free her spirit in time to save her own son? The film's general tone is much darker than that of the previous films.

'A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child' is one just of the weakest sequels in the 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' film series, and one of the weakest films overall. It is such a big disappointment after being so impressed by the surprisingly good previous two sequels (was also underwhelmed by the second film, which to me is actually marginally better than this one). The third film in particular being the best” read more

"1.11. Blu-ray Sarjan yleisesti varmaankin vähiten pidetty osa koostuu käytännössä täysin hullun tunnelmallisista ja synkistä painajaiskohtauksista. Pikaiset hetket valvemaailmassa ovat jälleen suoraa jatkumoa edeltäjästä. Minulle tämä suoraviivaisen tarinan hylkääminen surrealistisen painajaisen vuoksi toimii erinomaisesti. Erityisesti alun rohkean pitkitetty jakso, joka herättää Freddyn jälleen mukaan on aivan huikeaa settiä. Huumorikevennykset ovat ensikertaa aivan liian i"
