A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

Uninteresting teens have uninteresting angst in this disappointing sequel to A Nightmare On Elm Street that doesn't have much Freddy Krueger in it. Toasters catch on fire, birds explode, vinyl records melt, teenagers wrestle with subtext, and hot dogs burst into flames, and in spite of this the film drags on and on until Freddy Krueger appears onscreen, when the film finally springs to life.

While A Nightmare On Elm Street 2 has its moments, the lack of characterization of the teens, a wafer-thin plot, and a lack of Freddy makes three-quarters of the film a tough slog.
