JoAnn Willette is one of the girls seated in the back of the school bus driven by Freddy at the beginning of the film. She would later go on to star in the ABC sitcom Just the Ten of Us (1988), a program which not only featured numerous references to the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise, but also co-starred Heather Langenkamp (from the first, third, and seventh films) and Brooke Theiss (from the fourth film).

Some sequels top their originals. "Freddy's Revenge" definitely beats the first film by a long shot, cuz its more scary and Freddy is so much more terrifying than the other films. Another cool aspect is while the other films have Freddy portrayed as a stand alone killer, this entry has the dream killer in a more psychological aspect in that he has to possess a person to continue his evil spree, thus creating a more haunting tale than all the others. This also, in my opinion, is the darkest of the elm street series, especially the climactic pool party scene in which Freddy chillingly claims "You are all my children Now!" one of his best quotes. the acting by Patton and Meyers is excellent, and Robert Englund turns Freddy into a more menacing fiend than the last film. Strongly recommended. The Best Of The Series!
