Elm St. 6

Was as bloody ordinary as I remembered, I was hoping that it would hold up better, as some films do.

Easily the weakest of the films, it falls into the "if this is cool, then ten times as much of it is ten times as cool," trap. Sequences go on far too long, the dreams end up boring and repetitive, and Freddy has now attained cartoon character corniness.

One can only wonder what it would have been like if Peter Jackson's Elm St. script Dream Lover had been made instead.
