Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
A new family moves into the house on Elm Street, and before long, the kids are again having nightmares about deceased child murderer Freddy Krueger. This time, Freddy attempts to possess a teenage boy to cause havoc in the real world, and can only be overcome if the boy's sweetheart can master her fear. Written by

Rather than continue the story of Nightmare's sole survivor Nancy (Heather Langenkamp), Nightmare 2 focuses on the new residents of Nancy's old Elm Street house, joining a grand tradition of horror sequels which ignore the survivors of the prior installment for what would appear to be cost-control reasons. Langenkamp told the Never Sleep Again documentary that she was never actually offered a chance to do Nightmare 2, and the film's line producer couldn't recall if there had ever actually been any internal discussions at New Line about bringing her back. It has been hypothesized that David Chaskin and Jack Sholder's new concept of Freddy (possessing someone in the real world vs. killing them in their dreams) seemed so different from the first film, that bringing Nancy back wouldn't make a lot of sense.

The same scene is used twice. At 10:24 after the gym fight when Grady and Jesse are holding the push-ups pose in the field, as punishment. This is the same scene used for when Jesse insults Snyder in the locker room at 27:48. The same people pass behind the fence. See more »

Freddy's return in this movie is not surprising considering the ending of the first movie. A whole new tale with a new twist and some really cool scenes that stick in your mind. Many people don't like it, but I don't know why. It has plenty of scares and surprises and it's a proud member of the original trilogy.
