The Nightmare continues at Slasher Studios as our resident twitter reviewer Tim Schilling takes a look at “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge.” Forgetting many of the rules of the original, this sequel takes the franchise into a dark area many of the future sequels were afraid to touch. The film was even more successful at the box office than it’s original but received a bit of a mixed reaction among fans of the series.
Thoughts before the film:
Marathon continues! Haven’t seen part 2 in a while.
Thoughts while watching:
0:08 The weirdest looking people are in this movie…
0:09 Hahah, why would he even think of pulling his pants down? That’s just weird.
0:17 How did they get the snake out of the cage without ANYONE noticing?
0:22 This diary thing would have been better if it was hinted in the first one.
0:29 Those poor birds! Either it’s REALLY hot in the house… Or Freddy is an asshole.
0:33 I bet the coach is just pissed Jessie found him at a gay bar.
0:55 I can’t tell if Jessie and Grady are friends or not.
0:59 These effects are so much better than anything CGI can do. I like cheesy.
0:59 The shot when Jessie’s mouth was open and you could see Freddy’s eye… So cool.
1:07 Freddy is such a party pooper.
1:10 For getting attacked by a crazy killer and seeing all their friends die, these kids don’t look too scared.
1:12 Those mutant dog things were freaky.
1:17 You gotta have some balls to kiss Freddy. He’s a nasty one.
I thought #ANightmareOnElmStreet2’s story was a great continuation of the first while still different to be its own. Lots of, um, subtext in the movie that kind of stalled Freddy’s character development and instead showed more of the characters we will probably never see again.
