    It just goes to show, persevering with a franchise that has given too many duds can still reward you with a good movie.. justifies all those wasted hours.

    Definitely the best in the franchise after the original (New Nightmare not included because that takes place in the real world). I think the balance between creepy Freddy and creative Freddy is perfect, and of course he doesn't look like pizza yet which is awesome. The original soundtrack is incorporated into the new score, returning characters who feel the same but have aged and are relevant to the story, individual new characters that are all likeable in their own way,…
