Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge - 5/10
The sequel to Wes Craven's classic fails to recapture the spirit and tone of the first film. Freddy is underwritten and the film really suffers for it. The scenes with the parents were oddly entertaining and it turns out the Mother was played by Oscar nominated actress Hope Lange.
Mark Patton tries his best but is ultimately a strange choice of lead. His girlish flamboyance was apparently a deliberate choice and there is a whole subtext about repressed homosexuality that doesn't really go anywhere. The film is redeemed by the weird, surrealist sequences at the end.
