The absolute worst of the series. Why did New Line get Jack Shoulder, who directed their only other movie at the time Alone in the Dark, which bombed, to direct the sequel to the movie that actually saved them. There were fortunate this made a lot of money. The Movie is dumb. Freddy never actually goes into peoples dreams and kills them, which is the flippin premise of the series! In stead he gets the main character Jesse. One of the few good Freddy moments is followed up by one of the most girliest male screams ever. The plot is horrible. The way the defeat Freddy is just plan stupid. Not recommend.
