Freddy is back, and this time he’s after the people who played in the first film. Saying that all the other movies were just movies and now that Freddy is dead, he has been released from his prison in the movies and is now in the real world.
This movie was directed towards an older audience. Wes Craven said that he wanted to make a movie for the fans of the first Nightmare on Elm Street, since they were all grown up now, he made a more adult Freddy film. More of a psychological thriller than what we are used to with Freddy. This is a great installment in the Freddy series, and the new glove looks pretty cool. 7 out of 10.
