A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2 is a worthy follow up to the classic original. The themes established in the first film are furthered here, as young Jesse (Mark Patton), who has moved into 1428 Elm Street, is haunted by Freddy Krueger (the always wonderful Robert Englund). Krueger, not content with haunting people in their dreams, uses Jesse to extract his mayhem on the real world. The characters in this film are not as nicely developed as in the original (particularly Jesse's sitcom-like family and a vicious gym teacher), and the film also lacks part one's deep feeling of tension and gloom. Still, it has a nicely developed premise, and I liked its usage of psychological horror to draw the viewer into Patton's character. It developed, rather than rehashed, the themes of the first film. While definitely far from a great movie, it is certainly a very entertaining and solid sequel.
