A Nightmare on Elm Street 5 (1989)
Director: Stephen Hopkins
Main Stars: Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Kelly Jo Minter, Erika Anderson, Danny Hassel
Storyline: Alice is back but this time Freddy is getting through to her from the dreams of her unborn child.
Review (Spoils): Alice (Lisa Wilcox) survived the last film and now Freddy (Robert Englund) is back but he is haunting her from the unborn child that sits in her womb. Yes that’s right through the baby. We get some history on Freddys mother and the rape that she had in the asylum and of course classic Freddy humor. In this mess of a script we have lots of slashing, dreams, truck wrecks, some cheesy A-Ha wannabe scenes, eating to death, 80s Guess jeans and the kid from Ratt’s Lay it Down video who plays Jacob the to be born child.
Robert Englund is back playing Freddy like he always does but this film really lacks on gore, scares and even a decent storyline. When I see Kelly Jo Minter I think “my god it’s the 80s!” this is a bad thing.
Rating: Ok I thought the second one was bad but this one might be worse. We got nothing here really except a really bad storyline and some very bad special effects. I sense this is where the series fell off the tracks and went down the tubes. It’s bad…trust me!
