Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Attempt at Revenge

When an iconic horror monster such as Freddy Krueger is born in "Nightmare on Elm Street," you can bet there will be a sequel. Even in 1985 this was a requirement. Thus Freddy returns for an attempt at revenge and he has to manipulate Gary Numan to do it.

That’s right: Gary Numan is in "Freddy's Revenge" and he’s not down in the park or here in his car. What, that’s not Gary Numan? But he looks like him. OK, so it’s Mark Patton. (See, I should have stuck with the Numan joke). Will Mark Patton find his absolution?

Freddy starts puppeteering Jesse Walsh (Mark Patton) to kill for him. Jesse is a strange character who looks like a goth, but is sort of jockish. Freddy’s scheme isn’t what we are all used to, so "Freddy's Revenge" just makes Krueger creepy and gross. The lighting for Krueger is dark and keeps most shots from giving you a clear picture. Personally, that's preferable since the more light he gets on his face, the more he feels he needs to spit out the one-liners.

It’s hard to recommend that you skip this one because, in my book, you either see just the "Nightmare" or the whole series. While "Freddy's Revenge" is not a good film, it is good for what it is. And what it is… well, that’s debatable.

P.S. The, "you are all my children now," line kicks ass.
