This film is famous for having undertones and themes that many perceive as homoerotic, and the events of the film are often seen as an allegory for Jesse's closeted homosexuality. While the makers of the film initially denied that this subtext was intentional, Screenwriter David Chaskin eventually admitted that the subtext was intentionally written into the script, in order to give the characters more depth.

Why in God's name did this film get a four? I don't understand it! Okay, so it's not as good as the first one, but it's really close. If we were to compare the parts of the film, it would look something like this:
Beginning: Nightmare 1 wins here. It's more mysterious than 2. In 1 Tina's in a boiler room with Fred Krueger scratching his knives on things. In 2 Jesse's on a bus and suddenly Krueger's driving and they're on some sort of pillar with lava below them.
Middle: I don't want to retell every part of both movies, so I'll just tell you who wins: Number 1, but not by a whole lot, sort of a 10-9 thing. 1 has more suspense, 2 has more plot development and explains things better. But in 1, we care about the characters more. And that's why it wins.
End: That would go to 2. The climax is more exciting. In 1 the ending kind of sucked, with bringing Krueger into the real world with Nancy putting traps all over the place... Yeah, it was nor so good. But in 2 he comes into the real world and starts killing kids at a party. It was way better.
I really don't have to retell the plot because everybody else has told it correctly, so I'll just give my recommendation: SEE THIS MOVIE!
