Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994)

Last Watch Date - October 18, 2020
Total Times Watched - 6? 7? 10?


Freddy's Dead really killed the franchise. Or so we all thought in the early 90s. A mere 3 years later, Freddy was back in a meta-horror spin on the series. Freddy was somehow coming to real life? The biggest problem with this movie is that it has Heather Langenkamp. She is a bit better in this one, but man she sucks. I am not a big fan of movies with little kids center stage like this one, but it's pretty decent overall. Freddy is scary again and there are some pretty vicious kills, even if one of them is a total ripoff of Johnny Depp's from the first.


If you like Freddy and/or the other movies in the series, give it a watch. The acting is better 10 years on and there are some interesting parts, but it's not a great standalone movie.
