A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child is about as compelling as the last two. It’s following mostly the same group of kids (Alice, really, most of her friends have been diced by now) and Fred is assaulting them via the dreams of Alice’s unborn son.
And you know the rest. It’s not bad, per se, but the Nightmare series is kind of getting boring. The only storyline left that interests me at all is Part 7 where Wes Craven comes back and we see the Nightmare movies were really all movies except now Fred is getting to them in the “real world” rather than the fictional stories they filmed.
That’s a good concept. But first I need to get through Part 6 where Fred still isn’t banished for good. Yadda yadda yadda.
