Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2 is the second film in the Freddy Krueger series. This time his main target is the son of a man who just but the Elm Street house. Freddy preys on this sexually confused kid and forces him to do his bidding and uses him to serve his twisted needs. Can poor Jesse over come the strong willpower of Freddy? Will he be able to discover his true self? Watch and find out, you'll be surprised! Strange stuff.

What I liked about this film was the filmmakers tried to do something different, and it almost killed the series. The plot and storyline was too complex and byzantine for you average horror film. Much of the film's hidden context and meaning would go over the heads of most horror film fans. If Sigmund Freud were alive today he would've had a field day trying to figure out this one. Sadly underrated and unfairly neglected

After seeing A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge you as the audience will have to ask yourself "Are scriptwriters supposed to see the movie they're writing a sequel for, or just guess what the story is?" That's exactly what Nightmare 2 comes across as, because no one seems to have a clue as to what type of movie they're supposed to be making.     So the story is that Freddy Krueger wants to possess some boy whose moved into the house formerly inhabited by Nancy from …

What can I say about "Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge"? Hmmm, not as good as the original, but then again were any of the sequels? However there was still this "somewhat" dark edge to "Nightmare on Elm Street 2" that ended being lost as the series continued. Now what do I mean by "somewhat dark edge", well please kept reading.    This sequel begins with Jesse (the main character) and his family moving into the same home where Nancy Thompson (the heroin from part one) …
