Possession is nine-tenths of the law.
A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge is the runt of the Elm Street litter. It was unfortunate to be the sequel to a landmark horror film, a film that birthed one of the ultimate horror icons whilst having at its core a terrifying premise. A premise that was superbly executed by all involved in the first film. Part 2 bravely tried to advance the bogeyman story to another level, to one of possession, which in hindsight was a mistake.
There’s also the mixed tonal flow and confused intents that hamper the pic. Whilst the young members of the cast are too blank to garner the required amount of sympathy to get us to care about their plight, especially lead lad Mark Patton as Jesse Walsh. However, there is still a lot to like here, some striking imagery grabs the attention and it is not without some unnerving scares.
The debates about what metaphors the makers were going for still exist, and that homo-erotic sheen is never going to go away, but even though it’s an average Elm Street movie, it’s not as dreadful as it was first painted. 5/10
Freddy’s Revenge deserves redemption. If you don’t expect a film about Freddy, you can appreciate this sequel for what it is, instead of begrudging it for what it isn’t. The argument for a gay reading–the idea that Freddy is symbolic of the protagonist’s repressed homosexual desires–isn’t entirely convincing but even without it, the movie’s a lot better than many credit it. This is a Nightmare on Elm Street story that uses the creature to explore what it feels like to grow up. It’s confusing and scary and transformational. Tonal shifts and plot mistakes only contribute to the overall intent.
Not the worst, but not the best either.
The opening scenes of this film are very promising. The title music has a very sinister, menacingly calm quality to it and there is an excellently nightmarish sequence in a school bus which is driven by Freddy.
But generally the film is a might-have-been. True, it has its moments, such as the discovery of Nancy’s diary and the scene at the party, but things are pretty tame compared to the first film. Jesse is the new teenager living in Nancy’s old house and haunted by nightmares, but apart from the opening sequence there are very few dreamlike effects. There are some nightmarish animals but they are too briefly seen and are in such total darkness that they’re barely visible. The film is more of a cliched haunted house yarn than a story about nightmares. There are some interesting homosexual undertones but they are never really developed properly. There are also gaping plot-holes. After Freddy tears his way out of Jesse’s body, the remains somehow return to life. The next time Freddy appears Jesse seems to be inside him. Can anyone work out what’s going on?
What really lets this film down is its weak ending. Freddy and his boiler room suddenly burst into flames because Jesse’s girlfriend tells him she loves him. Utterly feeble. Surely the script-writers could have come up with a better ending than this.
Not an unwatchable film by any means, but just not the sequel it should have been.
My favorite of the sequels
This one was definitely different than the rest of the Elm Street’s. But I loved all of Freddy’s scenes and the way he delivered his lines. Robert England knew which words to emphasize in order to be effective.
The teenage characters were all likable. Especially Kim Myers’ character Lisa. She could have very easily abandoned Jesse when he started to get weirded out every day, but she stuck by his side to fight Freddy.
The special effects in this movie were really good. The best one being Freddy emerging right out of Jesse’s body.
The film’s humor wasn’t bad either. The littlest things still make me chuckle.
