I get to review the fifth film in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. By now the 80s had been deprived of sleep by Freddy, scared to watch TV, scared to sleep on water beds if Amanda is anything to go by. Plenty of teens had fallen to the hands of, or claws of even, Freddy Krueger.
It has been a patchy ride though with the first and third films being remembered as classics and the second and fourth being so-so.
The fifth is the last of the 80s outings for everyone’s favourite Nightmare.
