A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

Written by Leslie Bohem

Directed by Stephen Hopkins

1989 USA

The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise has nine films spread across three timelines (granted, two of those timelines only feature one film each). The original timeline started with the first film and ends for now with Freddy vs Jason (skipping New Nightmare in the process).

The first film set up the rules of the universe. Freddy can control your dreams and what happens in those dreams have real world consequences. If he kills you while you sleep, you die. It also established that items from the dream world can be brought into the real world and that Freddy can »

‘The Horror Show’ aka House III Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)

24 January 2014 2:05 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Every slasher film had to find some sort of way of setting itself apart from the other, by creating some sort of different villain who was unstoppable and creative in ways that kept bodies in seats. »
