A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE
(1985, d. Jack Sholder, w. David Chaskin)

“”NOES 2″ picks up 5 years after the events of the original “NOES”. We learn that Nancy, having battled and (supposedly defeated) Freddy, is now confined to a mental institution. (She’s never seen in the sequel.) We meet Jesse (Mark Patton), whose family has moved into Nancy’s old house. Jesse, we learn, is having violent nightmares about Freddy, who seems to want/need Jesse for something. But for what nefarious purpose? Or is the better question: what did Jack Sholder and David Chaskin think they were doing? Or the much more crucial question: Where the hell is Wes Craven when you need him?”

ONE-SENTENCE SUMMARY: “…breaks all of Wes Craven’s rules in an attempt to steer the mythology in a whole new direction.”

    Does anyone remember “Nightmare On Elm Street-The Series”? It was a show that came out real late at night but then got taken off the air because back then it was too gory for TV. I loved it. I was a child but I would stay up late to watch it when everyone was asleep. It was awsome but no one else I know remembers it. It was only on for a short time.
