    Well, it can't get any worse than this. Oh wait . . . It probably will. 11 years 10 months ago

    Though A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child has its moments - everyone seems to like the opener when Alice is in the skin of Freddy's mother and the would-be comics artist getting A-Ha'ed into his comic book, and I did too - it's too badly put together for me to give it a good report. Lisa Wilcox's Alice has made a bunch of new friends, is graduating, and has become pregnant. But Freddy's returned and wants to reincarnate (or something?) inside her baby (right?). He's also now able to attack her friends without going through her dreams, and indeed, when they're not sleeping, provoking waking nightmares, and it's sold as this big mystery and then never solved. Alice's abilities from the previous film are completely ignored. And then you have that finale that's hard to follow as shot, and goes all "magic glowing baby" on us in lieu of a proper victory against the nightmare demon. I felt very disconnected from it, so I agree, it's time they killed Freddy for good. 7 months 2 weeks ago
