A Great TV Series, Having Freddy Krueger as Showman – Volume 2
17 June 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The second volume of this series released on VHS in Brazil is composed of the following episodes:

1) ` Freddy's Tricks and Treats' (`A Noite das Bruxas')

Director: Ken Wiederhorn

Lead Cast: Mariska Hargitay (Marsha), Darren Dalton (Zach), Daniel McDonald (Mark) and Cameron Thor (Gary)

In Springwood, Marsha is a beautiful, but sexually repressed student of medicine. On the night of Halloween, she decides to go to the morgue of the university to dissect a corpse, while her friends are partying. She is very tired and has a nightmare with her imaginary boyfriend and her dead repressing grandmother. She is invited by a friend to participate of an experimental research with dreams, where they would be recorded and then played back. Certainly Freddy Krueger has an evil participation in this great story. The atmosphere of nightmare is excellent. Fans like me of Freddy Krueger will love this episode. My vote is eight. (16 Jun 2004).

2) `Killer Instinct' (`Instinto Assassino')

Director: Mick Garris

Lead Cast: Yvette Nipar (Nickie), Lori Petty (Chris Ketchum) and Kane Picoy (David)

In Springwood high school, Chris is a runner disputing with Nickie who is the best. Her mother was a successful athlete in the past and Chris has developed a kind of mental block, loosing the competitions in the end. Her trainer gives a stone with a necklace that belonged to her mother as an amulet. The life of Chris changes, affected by the evil effect of this bijouterie. Freddy Krueger presents this good horror story. My vote is six. (16 Jun 2004).

Title (Brazil): `A Hora do Pesadelo – O Terror de Freddy Krueger II' (` The Nightmare's Hour – The Terror of Freddy Krueger II')
