An average movie

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.

"Writing this day later I'm having troubles of separating these (from part 4 to part 6) in my head. This one had that creepy looking kid from Jurassic Park to help me separate it from the others. Didn't really like this one that much. The kills were mostly done really awfully."

"Al igual que la anterior esta película arrastra un problema y es que continua la trama de su película anterior una trama floja y llena de escusas. Gracias a eso tenemos un completo sin sentido de película donde nada puede ser rescatado mas que el carismático Freddy pues lo que resulta un problema como lo es su carisma cómica puede ser lo único que te mantiene viendo la película.

Bml93's Horror Nightmares - October 2017 (17 movies items)

" The Dream Child was far worse than I remembered it being. This installment in the franchise features perhaps the two dumbest and cringiest kills out of all the A Nightmare on Elm Street films. Chef Freddy and that comic book kill is shockingly terrible. It ridicules Freddy completely. The rest of the film is not much to care for either. It's naturally all camp and no scares, but it's frighteningly boring and unfunny with a very annoying cast at the top of that. "

"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"
