If 1988 was Freddy at his peak, 1989 was the beginning of the end for Freddy. With 1989 saw the release of â€œThe Dream Childâ€, the fifth installment of the Freddy franchise. Audiences were not impressed. The film grossed a little under half of what its immediate predecessor earned ($22 million vs. $49 million). Audiences seemed to have their fill of Freddy. Was â€œThe Dream Childâ€ just an underrated classic released at the wrong time or did this film deserve to be gutted at the box office? Our resident twitter reviewer Tim Schilling finds out with a brand new tweet by tweet review.
Thoughts before the film:
I really don’t know what to expect for this one…
Thoughts while watching:
0:06 Ew please don’t show when Freddy was conceived.
0:16 Where would she even fall asleep if she was at her own graduation?
0:19 That baby sure is ugly.
0:21 That made no sense how Freddy came back. They better explain why.
0:29 Dan’s dream was a dream in a dream… Inception.
0:32 You’re just a little pregnant.
0:35 At this point wouldn’t everyone already know who Freddy is so we don’t have to go through it every movie?
0:41 That dinner scene… I don’t know why I liked it. So weird.
0:48 Jacob you’re creepy.
0:49 Maybe she could just not name the baby Jacob and all of the could be over.
0:58 What kind of lawyers do these people have that they think they already have a claim on someone else’s baby?
1:09 Oh no super Freddy.
1:15 Hahha ew, poor Freddy. I hope they don’t do what they did to his mother.
1:24 Freddy just die already.
I thought the fourth one was confusing, but #ANightmareOnElmStreet5 was even more so. The plot made no sense, at all. It was basically a random reason to make another movie in the series. But, I still love how weird these movies are. The crazy effects are too awesome to hate.
