Silent J’s review:
This may not be the best Nightmare film (the ending kinda kills it for me) but it's certainly the most original and different film since the original. It works as both a thrilling horror film and a witty Hollywood satire. It surprisingly even has some compelling human drama. Freddy Krueger returns to his sinister roots away from his comedic persona and is the scariest he's been since the first film. I only wish he had a confrontation with the real Robert Englund somewhere in the film. It's a scary, smart, and highly entertaining entry in the Nightmare franchise. It would have been a brilliant end to the franchise had it ended here. The best Nightmare sequel.
