A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5: THE DREAM CHILD
(1989, d. Stephen Hopkins, w. John Skipp, Craig Spector, Leslie Bohem)

“Returning is Lisa Wilcox as Alice, who is about to graduate with boyfriend Dan (Danny Hassel, also returning). As the film opens, Alice finds herself reliving some of the events that led to Freddy’s birth, including the accidental trapping, and then rape, of Freddy’s nun mother. Freddy himself, thought killed, has somehow resurfaced in the dreams of Alice’s unborn child, and plans to be “reborn” in the place of Alice’s baby.”

ONE-SENTENCE SUMMARY: “If “NOES 4: The Dream Master” got serious about the bodycount, then “NOES 5″ has taken a big step backwards.”
